The special investigative commission was requested by the leader of the M5S Giuseppe Conte after the Prime Minister’s statements last December 13th in Parliament
Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni arrived at the Chamber for the hearing with the Honorary Jury. The special investigative commission was requested by the leader of the M5S Giuseppe Conte after the Prime Minister’s statements on the ESM last December 13th in Parliament. Yesterday Conte’s hearing before the Honorary Jury lasted an hour and a half.
”I feel honored by the responsibility given to me by the president of the Fontana Chamber. I am sure that thanks to the work that will be done with the other 4 members of the commission, we will be calm in the evaluation of the facts and impartial in the final considerations”, the Italian Giorgio Mulé, vice-president of the Chamber, told Adnkronos two days ago, who he plays the role of president of the Honorary Jury, the parliamentary body requested by Conte for the case of the fax waved in the Chamber by Prime Minister Meloni on the ESM.
The Honorary Jury (functions and tasks are governed by article 58 of the Chamber Regulations) is called upon to resolve the dispute between the president of the 5 stars and the president of Fratelli d’Italia on the reform of the bailout fund which broke out after the accusations from the Prime Minister against Conte and the Five Star Movement a month ago.
Mulé said he was calm and ready to guarantee impartiality of judgement: ”I who preach, believing in it, the impartiality and impartiality of the judge, as well as his natural independence, can only be a mirror of these evaluations”. It is no coincidence , the FI deputy was keen to point out, “on the matter being examined by the Honorary Jury I have not made, nor will I make, any statement on the facts which are the subject of the investigation”. After the ‘double hearing’, protected by secrecy to the point that the commissioners themselves will be able to consult the minutes only in presence and without obtaining any copies, it will be assessed whether other investigative measures will be necessary. Vice versa, we will proceed with the drafting of the final report which will be elaborated and shared by all the members of the judging panel. The report will then be read in the Chamber, and, as required by the House rules pursuant to article 58, the Assembly will take note of it ”without debate or vote”. The Jury will report to the Chamber, as far as we know, by February 9th.
