Leave as soon as possible, but in the name of legality. Because the risk of criminal infiltration, especially in the South, is more present than ever. The Minister of the Interior is convinced of this Luciana Lamorgese who hopes for further interventions for the South, because it is a very fragile territory, trusting precisely in what the head of the Interior Ministry defines the state team, also composed of law enforcement and judiciary.
the key passage of the annual appointment with the National Operational Program for Legality, in which they took part among others the chief of policeLamberto Giannini and the deputy chief Maria Teresa Everviva, which also the Pon management authority, Roberto Di Bella, president of the Juvenile Court of Catania and Massimo Osanna, director of museums of the Ministry of Culture. Among the activities of the Pon there is precisely the social reintegration of young people, also with their involvement in cultural activities. The meeting in web streaming organized with the collaboration ofCorriere della Sera moderated by the deputy director Fiorenza Sarzanini.
Lamorgese reiterated how Italy’s recovery after this pandemic period can only go through the principles of legality, underlining how in front of people who have serious problems, including economic ones, organized crime is an alternative welfare: it is difficult to get out of a criminal circuit, hence the urgent need for State aid to arrive immediately.
Ma the management of the Recovery funds is more than a concern. The prefects – revealed the minister – have adopted numerous anti-mafia prohibitions: in 2021 there are already 700, 2,200 in 2020, 1,500 in 2019. According to Prefect Giannini, throughout the period of the pandemic, Pon Legalit has guaranteed an important support to the police for a continuous territory, aimed at enforcing the containment rules and at the same time being close to the citizens, who are often disoriented. But it has also boosted the investigation and prevention of criminal phenomena with a technological contribution. An extraordinary effort, recalled the police chief, for which we paid a very high price, with the death of many colleagues and the contagion of many others.
The Pon will end at the end of 2023 and has as its main objective the strengthening of the conditions of legality in Sicily, Calabria, Campania, Puglia and Basilicata, while in the other regions it will be used above all for the reception of migrants and to support the commitment of the police forces, the fire brigade and the prefectures in the fight against the pandemic. To date 97.5% of the available funds have been used: 692 million euros, for finance 324 projects for a value of 675 million. A unicum in the community panorama of cohesion policies – underlined Sempreviva – to strengthen the conditions of security and legality in the most disadvantaged areas of the country. But also to create conditions of legality in territories where backwardness is fueled and maintained by dynamics of convenience.
