Piantedosi: 'Maximum government confidence in the police forces'

Interior Minister Matteo Piantedosi is expected to give a briefing to the Council of Ministers (expected in the afternoon) on what happened in some demonstrations in recent days, after the controversy over the management of public order.

During today's meeting at the Interior Ministry with the leaders of the confederal trade union organisations, according to what we learn from ministry sources, the minister Matteo Piantedosi expressed the “maximum trust of the entire government towards the police forces”. The men and women in uniform, he added, are “servants of the State and workers who play a fundamental role in ensuring safety and legality”.

“We are only faced with isolated cases being evaluated and there has never been any change in strategy in a more restrictive sense of the management of public order”, said Minister Matteo Piantedosi during today's meeting with the leaders of the confederal unions . Furthermore, he recalled, “similar events have occurred in recent years with even more serious accidents”.

The Minister of the Interior, Matteo Piantedosi, reiterated during the meeting with the unions that he “fully shares President Mattarella's words”. Even the owner of the Interior Ministry is convinced that “the authority of the Police forces is not nourished by the use of force but is rooted in the sacrifice of hundreds of those killed in the fight against terrorism and crime, in the loyal defense of democratic institutions even in the most of the Republic, in the ability to accompany the development of Italian society with balance and professionalism”. And “I also agree – he added – with the president's other previous call against the “intolerable series of manifestations of violence: insults, vulgarity of language, interventions devoid of content but full of verbal aggression, even effigies burned or vilified”.

Clashes Pisa, the chain of command is the priority of the prosecutors' investigation

The investigations carried out on the clashes in Pisa focused on the conduct of the chain of command on duty last Friday, based on the analysis of the videos already examined by the carabinieri. According to what we have learned, in fact, at the center of the judicial authority's assessments is above all this aspect, that is, who made the decisions and in particular to understand who gave the order to attack vehemently. While maintaining the utmost confidentiality on the matter, judicial circles reveal the desire to proceed quickly also to restore a climate of serenity in the city as soon as possible after the controversy.

In recent days, it is highlighted, there have been repeated demonstrations of solidarity towards the students, which have brought thousands of citizens to the streets who have harshly criticized the actions of the police. Furthermore, according to what we learn, a summit among investigators could be convened shortly to evaluate who to assign the investigations to. It is suggested from many quarters that it could be the police themselves who go deeper to clarify whether there have been technical and operational errors, or even abuses in the management of public order. Moreover, it was the CGIL, CISL and UIL unions who reported yesterday that in the meeting held last Saturday in the prefecture with the prefect, police commissioner and mayor, as well as the commanders of the carabinieri and financial police, it was the police commissioner himself who admitted “a problem of management of the square, from an organizational and operational point of view, in his opinion caused by the fact that the objectives of the procession were not clear”.

Two briefings to the prosecutors, the crimes are evaluated

The Digos report, with all the information relating to who was on duty and the provisions on the management of public order, and the conclusions of the Carabinieri, who acquired and analyzed all the videos circulated on social media or filmed by urban video surveillance cameras: There are two pieces of information received by the prosecutor's office in Pisa relating to the police charges at the pro-Palestine student demonstration last Friday. Now it will be the acting prosecutor, Giovanni Porpora, who will decide which crimes to identify and to whom to definitively assign the investigation file.

Cardinal Parolin: “We need reasonableness on everyone's part”

“I believe that we are all called to be reasonable” and “so if there are, I say this in general, protests, it can be expressed in the right ways. We must always find the right way to express our needs and requirements” and “at the same time be available to welcome them”. Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin said this on the sidelines of an event at the IDI, responding to journalists who asked him for a comment on the events in Pisa.
