They weren’t a Roma but they were a Milano. A detail that could change today forcing the Capitoline prosecutors to send the papers to their Lombard colleagues. It was in the city of the Duomo, in fact, that in April 2020 Paolo Storari, deputy prosecutor of Milan, handed over to Piercamillo Davigo, at that time councilor of the Csm, the minutes of the interrogations made by the lawyer Piero Amara on the alleged secret lodge Hungary. A gesture dictated by the need to protect themselves since the heads of the Prosecutor’s Office would not have followed up on his repeated requests to investigate the case immediately. The delivery in the Lombard capital could affect the territorial jurisdiction and lead the prosecutors of Rome, who summoned Storari to be investigated for Saturday, to transmit the documents relating to his position to Brescia, which, on the other hand, is the investigating office responsible for the crimes against the Milanese magistrates. Brescia, among other things, has just opened an investigation for disclosure of secrecy: at the moment the file is without suspects.
Just for having delivered to Davigo those minutes, without signature and stamps, Storari is investigated a Roma for revelation of office secrecy and will have to go on Saturday in front of the Capitoline prosecutors. “The story is delicate and also for a matter of institutional respect that must always be maintained I do not enter into the merits of the defensive choices, we do not anticipate what must happen in the right places”, he says Paolo Della Sala, Storari’s lawyer. “Saturday will be the venue for each appropriate consideration with the interrogation before the authority that summoned him. Given the utmost respect for the institutions, it is not appropriate to say more ”, concludes the lawyer who is not unbalanced on a possible problem within the competence of the Roman prosecutor. Just today, among other things, Davigo is expected to testify in piazzale Clodio, as part of the investigation in which Marcella Contrafatto, his secretary until he retired, is accused of having anonymously disseminated Amara’s secret minutes to some newspapers. The employee, now suspended, is being investigated for slander because the minutes were accompanied by a letter in which the leaders of the Milanese prosecutor’s office were accused of inertia.
Today the story was also mentioned by the vice president of the CSM, David Ermini, at the opening of the plenum. “In a difficult moment for the judiciary that wants a great redemption, as well as the CSM, Pietro Scaglione and Rosario Livatino are the figures to refer to,” said Ermini. Tomorrow – on the occasion of the screening of the documentary on Livativo – the president will also arrive at Palazzo dei Marescialli Sergio Mattarella, who, however, should not intervene. On the question of Amara’s minutes from Colle only a reminder of absolute respect for the rules filters. Any further intervention, they let know from Quirinale, would be configured as undue interference in the ongoing investigations by four prosecutors.
This is just the latest episode linked to the history of the minutes of Amara, a former Eni external lawyer and already convicted of corruption in judicial acts. Only yesterday, among other things, Amara was also notified of a notice of closure of the investigation by the prosecutor of Perugia for boasted credit and traffic of influences. Among the people accused by Amara also the Attorney General of Turin Francesco Saluzzo: the former Eni lawyer indicates him among the illustrious members of the secret lodge Hungary. “It was Vietti who sent Saluzzo to Rome. I already knew that he was part of the Hungary association and in any case this circumstance was confirmed to me by the way he greeted me, pressing his index finger three times on my wrist while he held my hand“, Says Amara – according to what the Turin column of the Corriere della Sera reports -, questioned in December 2019 by the deputy prosecutor of Milan Laura Pedio and from prosecutor Storari. “I don’t even know who this Amara is,” he says to al Corriere della Sera Saluzzo, who therefore denies knowing the phantom secret lodge.
