David Rossi, green light to the Commission of Inquiry into death causes

Approved in the House with 233 votes in favor and no votes against. The widow: “Enormous satisfaction”

The Chamber of Deputies has given the go-ahead for the establishment of the Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry into the death of David Rossi, the former Head of Communications of Monte dei Paschi di Siena. The institution of the Commission was approved with 233 votes in favor and none against.

“Enormous satisfaction for a unanimous vote”, the comment to Adnkronos by Antonella Tognazzi, Rossi’s widow. However, the “disappointment” remains for the amendment presented by the Democratic Party which asked to define the duration of the Commission’s work in 18 months, justifying the request with a question of respect for the family to arrive at the truth in a defined time. The Democratic Party “never interacted with us, did not even vote for the final report (of the Commission of Inquiry set up in the last legislature, ed.) – underlines Tognazzi – Limiting the duration of the Commission to 18 months would not have given the family one more chance, but it seemed to replicate the speed with which it was decided at the time that David’s was a suicide.” “Disappointment” therefore for this position taken by the Democratic Party “although acknowledging that there was a final favorable vote”.

From the new Commission of Inquiry “I expect the same seriousness and dedication that the previous Commission demonstrated – concluded Tognazzi – I hope they will all be motivated to resume the work from where they were interrupted and to continue the investigations”.

Even her daughter, Carolina Orlandi, admits that she was “as excited as for the vote of the first Commission. Once again the parliament unanimously asks for clarity. This confirms once again how many gaps still need to be clarified”.

“Last night I was also able to make an appeal to two women who at the moment represent the country, Giorgia Meloni and Elly Schlein – recalls Orlandi who launched an appeal yesterday on the show ‘Le Iene’ – We would like to meet them together, it would be a “It is also an opportunity to remember that there is no majority or opposition in the face of justice. And that families like ours also have the right to be able to take care of their pain, without having to fight anymore”.
