Not only i mafia crimes, but also those environmental that I am “Equally hateful” they should be contained in the list of those for which it does not shoot non-passability, consequently subjecting them to more stringent deadlines in relation to prescription. The national co-spokesperson of Europa Verde is convinced of this, Angelo Bonelli, according to which “the agreement on justice reform reached in the council of ministers keeps out environmental crimes that are hateful and dangerous like those of the mafia because they health and public safety at risk as well as destroying ecosystems. “
The green exponent motivates his statement, on the day in which a meeting point was reached in the Council of Ministers between the various souls of the government on the reform of justice, explaining that “the trials for environmental disasters often turn out to be very complex from a technical-scientific point of view and allocating excessively stringent times to the investigation phase would mean not having evidence available that would go beyond the ‘reasonable doubt’. A reform that does not address the problem, which is at the basis of the length of trial times, namely that of the shortage of magistrates and auxiliary personnel ”.
And right on scarcity of togas Bonelli pauses to explain that, as the reform was conceived, numerous processes, including environmental ones, risk ending up in statute of limitations due to lack of time and resources: “Italy – continues the ecologist exponent – has 12 magistrates each 100 thousand inhabitants, a ratio among the lowest in Europe. Germany, for example, has 24. The processes must be fast, but this cannot be achieved only with the shortening of time, but also with a new organization of the judiciary, starting with the personnel. Processes concerning environmental and health disasters cannot lead to a prescription without ascertaining responsibility ”.
And to give a concrete example, remember the case Taranto: “The process Environment Cleared Out, which involved over forty defendants in Taranto, is an example of a trial extremely complex and articulated with respect to which an excessively contracted timing would lead not to a short trial, but to the death of the trial itself, in the absence of a strengthening of the judicial offices “.
