Mafia, foreign competition is untouchable: the government’s pledge against crime

No means of fighting the mafia will be weakened by this government. This was assured by the undersecretary of Justice, Andrea Delmastro, in an interview with Corriere della Sera. «The government’s line is clear – explained the deputy of the Brothers of Italy -, external competition in mafia associations cannot be touched. Let’s say a perfect storm has triggered on Nordio-Thought. A logic short circuit. Because the Minister of Justice said that it does not exist. And you want to intervene with an ad hoc provision, which does not mean abolishing, but typifying an ad hoc crime». And in any case, Demastro explained again: “I guarantee everyone, there is no desire to lower the bar in the fight against the mafia. And it could not be different. Because Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni was politically inspired by Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, as she always said. Let’s say better, no tool in the fight against the mafia will be weakened by this government. I think that’s understood.”

Responding to a question about the ANM, Delmastro said that the National Association of Magistrates “presents some requests that are good to hear. The body politic has another, independent role. But in the case of external competition, there is not even reason for disagreement». The case for the separation of careers is another matter: “It has always been in the center-right program and we are going to do it.” A new motivation for the tension between magistrates and the government.
