Foxes in the henhouse

volpe_nel_pollaio.gif

The law should be simple and understandable. I believe that no one knows the number of laws that there are in Italy. There are judicial entities of mysterious significance. I've heard people talk about TAR since I was a child. I know that the most important TAR is in Lazio. I've never gone further into it. The famous TAR of Lazio. And the Council of State, does it really exist? Who can ask for advice from it? And about what? And once it has given its advice, then what? Have people got the foggiest idea what are the GIP and the Tribunal of Liberty? The machinery of justice is incomprehensible for citizens. They perceive it to be a threat. The Consiglio Superiore della Magistratura (Csm) {Highest Council of the Magistracy} that I used to think was a home for retired magistrates like Scalfaro, is instead very important: it governs the judiciary and protects its autonomy and independence. On paper it guarantees the interests of the citizens.

The CSM is made up of 27 people of whom 8 were nominated by Parliament last week:
- Gianfranco Anedda (AN)
- Michele Saponara (Forza Italia)
- Nicola Mancino (Margherita)
- Ugo Bergamo (UDC)
- Vincenzo Siniscalchi (DS)
- Celestina Tinelli (Ulivo)
- Mauro Volpi (PRC)
- Letizia Vacca (Pdci).

The election was completely in regular, according to norms in articles laid down by the fathers of the Constitution (that no politician has asked to modify).
But I can't accept that this powerful constitutional body that watches over the justice system has within it, party representatives. I don't trust it much. And perhaps this is the root of parliamentary immunity, of Previti out of prison after 2 days, of convicts in Parliament. It seems to me a trick, like putting the fox to guard the henhouse or Mastella at the Ministry of Justice. Let's at least change its name to Consiglio Superiore per il Controllo della Magistratura, {Supreme Council for the Control of the Magistracy}, that way people would start to understand.

@ Riccardo,

Hai ragione sulla bandiera. Forse mi stavo confondendo con qualche altro sito? Non lo so. In ogni caso, per˛, ti posso assicurare che io sto usando la stessa esatta versione di Firefox (1.5.0.4) di te e non ho assolutamente nessun problema nel cambiare dalla pagina inglese a quella italiana! E' strano. Mi dispiace ma non so come spiegarlo.

Anche io pensavo che in Italia esistessero troppe leggi ma non conoscevo il Brasile. Ne sanno qualcosa gli italiani che per ´gnoranza della legge"(che ovviamente non Ú ammessa, hanno perso tutto. Ho trovato tra i libri di www.offshoreworld.org/eBooks.htm una guida che aiuta a navigare tra la burrocrazia (burro in portoghese vuol dire asino) brasiliana. Ma oggi come oggi dobbiamo ricordarci che Ú permesso solo quello che non Ú proibito... Cosa sia non l'ho ancora capito!

Caro, Frank ti informo che ti sbagli, se guardi la versione inglese la bandiera del link italiano e' ovviamente quella italiana, inoltre ho l'ultimissima versione di firefox, la 1.5.0.4, con la versione precedente il sito fnzionava bene, con quest'ultima versione non piu'. Il problema credo che sia del sito non perfettamente compatibile con l'ultima versione di firefox.

"quando clicco sul link italiano, la bandiera, mi ricarica la pagina inglese"

In primo luogo, dovete cliccare sulla bandiera inglese per caricare la versione della pagina in italiano e viceversa. Se ancora non funziona, probabilmente avete una vecchia versione di Firefox e dovete scaricare e installare una versione pi¨ aggiornato.

Beppe, ma non dici niente a favore del Manifesto?????

Ciao Beppe, oltre alla mia inconfutabile stima, voglio informarti che da 3 giorni non riesco a vedere le news in italiano, le vedo solo in inglese, quando clicco sul link italiano, la bandiera, mi ricarica la pagina inglese, questo con Firefox, il nuovo browser emergente, che fino a 3 giorni fa andava egregiamente. Con internet explorer invece e' tutto normale.
Complimentoni, alla prossima, Aloha!
