Alfredo Cospito, Piantedosi: “It’s dangerous”

“Alfredo Cospito was convicted of some very serious crimes committed”

“A rise in tension must be followed up an increase in attentionwe are following with great care what is happening”. This is what Interior Minister Matteo Piantedosi said on ‘Tg4 – Diario del Giorno’ on the protests and the Cospito case. “These actions, which we do not underestimate, will not be those which will condition us for the choices of the future” says the Minister of the Interior. Alfredo Cospito was convicted “for some very serious crimes committed and with respect to which the competent judicial bodies have proposed a prison regime to the competent bodies”, says the Minister of the Interior, underlining that “it is a harsh prison regime” applied “to a character who has demonstrated a moderate danger and this has also been assessed by the competent bodies”.

MIGRANTS – “This government has the merit of having brought back into the European debate the centrality and importance of migration by sea as a problem for the whole of Europe” underlines Piantedosi.

NGO – “The regulatory framework that we have proposed is of fundamental importance, for us it is important to regulate the phenomenon” he explains, answering a question about the NGOs. “We are deeply convinced that the unregulated presence of private vessels is a pull factor.” “The bailouts are borne by the state and Italy provides commendably” he continues.

GOVERNMENT – “The first 100 days are extremely positive” he says speaking of the first 100 days of the Meloni government. With regard to the issue of security, the minister underlined that “security is built over longer periods”, but this has begun, for example, by intervening on stations together with the mayors. “In 15 days more than 3,400 people from the police force, 380 municipal agents, 405 employees from other administrations were involved and 79 people were arrested,” he said of the “high impact services” in the stations. Piantedosi explains that these are “controls with a different philosophy, less fixed services, more repeated, with broader police specialties”.
