The justice reform arrives in the classroom at Camera, basically “Armored”. After the corrections on the timing of the appeal for crimes related to the mafia association approved in cabinet thanks to the push of the M5s, the deputies begin work on the text today before the vote which in all likelihood will come to the vote on Tuesday, with the hypothesis of confidence still in the field. But tension continues inside the government after a long and troubled mediation that led to a compromise from which some pentastellate proposals remained, such as that of carrying out also on appeal trials for minor offenses – those with direct summons, punished with a maximum of four years in prison – before one judge instead of three.
A simple and effective rule to speed up processes by increasing human resources available to the Courts of Appeal, on which the European Commissioner alal Justice has raised the alarm in recent weeks Didier Reynders (“The number of Italian judges remains one of the lowest in the EU”). The opposition, it seems, was manifested in particular by Come on Italy, League e Italy Viva, who have interpreted the concerns of some legal circles. Therefore, one of the few proposals that would have had a substantial impact on the functioning of the machinery of justice (in addition to the abolition of the ban on The reformation of the worse, that is, to impose a heavier penalty on appeal in case of appeal of the accused only).
The works will start at 14 and remains in the dance question of trust. that the government could decide to put to arm the reform. “Now everyone respects the pacts,” said the Minister of Justice Marta Cartabia a the Republic perhaps fearing that in the next two days new questions may arise and new stakes may be set.
In fact, the green light for the amendment of the force fighter did not go unnoticed Pierantonio Zanettin in which “more stringent criteria” are asked for the reopening of the investigations: the forecast could risk raising further doubts among the 5 Stars who also had to renounce an explicit reference to an extension of the prescription times for crimes against the public administration and which in the meantime, for example, are joined by a Leu to ask to give more time to the processes for the environmental disasters.
And in the afternoon Giuseppe Conte gathers the 5-star parliamentarians. The former premier – on the eve of two days of work in the Chamber that are intertwined with the vote for new Statute – called for a meeting with the deputies and senators precisely to take stock of the Cartabia reform. The assembly, the 5 Stars are keen to clarify, had been requested for some time above all to share with the groups the decisions and negotiations that had been carried out by a small group of exponents. Although there are appeals from the former “grillini” not to vote on the reform, the 5 Stars ensure that they are compact, that doubters would be very few.
In any case, Conte will ask everyone to support the agreement reached that led to profoundly changing the timing of the Appeal for mafia aggravating offenses. While the processes for mafia-like association e vote of political-mafia exchange (416-bis and ter) may be extended “indefinitely” with infinite extensions, as already provided for in the first draft. “It is not our reform but we have helped to improve it. We said that one cannot compromise on the Mafia and terrorism trials and we got it ”, commented the leader in pectore of the M5S, who led the negotiations with the government from the beginning. And to the question of the fattoquotidiano.it about possible defections in the Chamber he had said: “We are a big family, we will examine the text in detail and I am confident that in general discussion we will be compact “.
