Cospito case, Delmastro investigated in Rome

The undersecretary of Justice will be heard tomorrow by the prosecutors in the context of the investigation into the disclosure and use of official secrecy

The Undersecretary of Justice Andrea Delmastro will be heard tomorrow by the Rome prosecutors in the context of the investigation into the disclosure and use of official secrecy. The undersecretary has been entered in the register of suspects. The investigation was opened after the complaint presented by the deputy of the Alleanza Verdi and Sinistra Angelo Bonelli in relation to the intervention of the deputy Giovanni Donzelli on the affair of the anarchist Alfredo Cospito.

In the complaint that gave rise to the investigation, reference is made to the conversations in prison between Cospito and a member of the ‘Ndrangheta and a camorrista which took place between December and January last and were then read in the courtroom.

“I’m sorry that it was not the Ministry of Justice that shed light on the Donzelli and Delmastro affair but both the judicial authority which, on the basis of the complaint I presented on February 2 to the Public Prosecutor’s Office in Rome today allegedly investigated for revelations of secrecy Undersecretary Delmastro ex officio” he says Angelo Bonelli. “The answer that the Ministry of Justice gave me a few days ago is a real boomerang – he underlines – because in the intentions of Minister Nordio there was a clear will to defend and politically safeguard Donzelli and Delmastro who had irresponsibly disseminated acts of the Dap reserved”.

“Why are the declarations of the ministry a boomerang? The ministry informed me that the documents on the Cospito case that I had formally requested, unlike Donzelli, could not be disclosed not for state secrecy or investigative secrecy, as the minister incredibly declared in Parliament, but for violation of official secrecy. In rejecting my request to have the same documents that Donzelli made public, the ministry referred to two rules to justify the refusal, namely art. 24/1990 and the Ministerial Decree of 25 January 96 n. 115″. “This reference by the ministry – continues Bonelli – is proof that those documents were confidential by the Ministry of Justice’s own admission, therefore state secrets or administrative secrecy have nothing to do with it”.

“Now, unfortunately, it will be the judicial authority and not Minister Nordio who has lent himself to an unacceptable political operation which, as a straight man like he is, he should not have endorsed. official defense of the representatives of the Brothers of Italy. I reiterate that regardless of the outcome of the judicial investigation, Undersecretary Delmastro and the Honorable Donzelli must resign as Copasir Undersecretary and Vice-President respectively due to evident inadequacy and unreliability and I would not investigation should result in a disavowal of Minister Nordio’s theses, because at that point we will also ask him to account”.
