The Senate Justice Commission, chaired by Giulia Bongiorno, resumed this morning the examination of the approximately 160 amendments presented to the Nordio bill
“We will continue to vote in favor of this Nordio bill because we are always guaranteed.” Thus the senator of Italia Viva, Ivan Scalfarotto, who had already voted with the majority yesterday to abolish abuse of office, splitting the opposition front in the Senate Justice Commission which instead voted against.
When asked if yes will be chosen also due to the restriction on the publication of wiretaps provided for in article 2 of the text, Salfarotto replied: “Of course, we are against people being massacred in newspapers” without even a conviction. “Look at what has happened in recent days – he added – with the case of Simonetta Cesaroni. The newspapers have openly accused a person of the murder” without any judicial certainty.
Examination of the amendments
The Senate Justice Commission, chaired by Giulia Bongiorno, resumed this morning the examination of the approximately 160 amendments presented to the Nordio bill. After having approved article 1 of the text yesterday which provides, among other things, for the abolition of the crime of abuse of office, we have now moved on to article 2 which concerns the ban on the publication of interceptions, including those of third parties, and the reform of the discipline of pre-trial detention in prison.
“I believe there is a balance in this provision and everything is progressing”, commented Giulia Bongiorno at the end of the session. On the wiretapping issue, Bongiorno explained, “there are no problems, but great debates and great listening especially from the speaker and the government and we are proceeding as expected”.
