Branding the citizens with fire


Justice in Italy doesn’t look anyone in the face. If a citizen is convicted, their life is finished. Even if they had a clean record. Even if they are “rehabilitated” after 5 years with the “no mention”. The crime in fact is never cancelled from the justice list that can be accessed by the public administration. There’s only one possibility: throw yourself into politics, that place of the spirit where convictions are honoured.
The relationship between the number of convicts in the Scampia neighbourhood in Naples and Parliament is in favour of the deputies. Our employees have the decisive victory. When the parties do an election campaign in Scampia, the camorra people come out into the streets to defend their honourability.
I’m asking the lawyers who read this blog to give me an opinion. Is it possible that a crime, cancelled with the “no mention”, can stay for a lifetime available to State officials?

Dear Beppe,
I’m 31 years old and in 2000 I got a criminal conviction with a sentence of 2 months following involvement in a riot with the police. On the advice of my lawyer, I chose to make an arrangement so as to avoid a trial that would have lasted years. Since I had a clean record, I made use of the conditional sentence.
Five years after the date of the sentence I asked for rehabilitation and it was what was laid down in the law because I had made the arrangement I would have the right to “no mention”. In the meantime I graduated and I’m registered with the register of Social workers in the Region of Umbria.
A few days ago I’ve discovered that the right to “no mention” is complete tomfoolery since both the public administration and the CSM have access to a special justice list, to which normal citizens don’t have access but from which no type of crime is ever deleted.
This means that I cannot take part in public competitions, that I am having serious difficulty in collaborating with the tribunal for children and so on and so forth.
I’m wondering what’s the point in making a law that has the benefit of the “no mention” when this in fact doesn’t exist?
What sense is there in a State (in which a large number of parliamentarians are in the best viewpoint, just defendants) that can brand someone for life for an idiotic crime committed seven years ago, stopping them from having the same possibilities as others? Completely against rehabilitation!!!
I also know that many people are in the same situation as me and I believe it is important to shed some light on this question that I believe is harmful to individual liberty, discriminating and ghetto-izing.
I don’t know whether this matter that I have raised can be of interest, but I hope that someone can answer me or at least give an airing to the issue. Thank you.” Sergio V.
