Clashes in Rome, Lamorgese: “No arrests to avoid risks”. Meloni attacks: “It’s a strategy of tension”
The authorities have chosen not to stop one of the Forza Nuova leaders who stormed the national headquarters of the CGIL last Saturday to avoid further violence. This was stated by the Minister of the Interior Luciana Lamorgese, who today responded to the question time in the Chamber on the management of public order on the occasion of the demonstration against the green pass held in Rome on 9 October.
A speech harshly criticized by the leader of the Brothers of Italy Giorgia Meloni, who accused the minister, for months also in the crosshairs of the League secretary Matteo Salvini, of using words that “offend parliament”.
Addressing the deputies of the Chamber, Lamorgese today highlighted how the deputy secretary of Forza Nuova Giuliano Castellino, among those arrested for the attack on the CGIL headquarters in Rome, had “expressed the will to direct the procession to the CGIL headquarters” already during the his speech in Piazza del Popolo, where the demonstrators gathered on Saturday. Nevertheless, the authorities have decided not to stop him to avoid the “violent reaction” of other neo-fascists. “The choice to proceed coercively against him was not considered viable by the heads of the security services, because in that context there was the obvious risk of a violent reaction from his associates with degeneration of public order”, said Lamorgese , who also expressed “full solidarity with the CGIL for the cowardly assault on its headquarters”.
The minister also spoke on the issue of the dissolution of Forza Nuova, loudly requested by the Democratic Party and other allied forces for the violation of the Scelba law, which punishes anyone who tries to reorganize the fascist party in any form.
“With regard to the dissolution of subversive organizations, it should be noted that this is an exceptionally important political-juridical issue of extreme complexity and delicacy”, said Lamorgese, stating that the issue is being examined by the government, “whose collegial action may also be addressed on the basis of judicial assessments as well as the indications of Parliament following the motion already scheduled “, in reference to the motion with which the Democratic Party asked the government to proceed with the dissolution of the party led by Roberto Fiore. A request to which the Brothers of Italy and the center-right agreed only in part, calling for the dissolution of “all” subversive organizations and not just those of a fascist nature.
“We are not idiots, what happened on Saturday was deliberately allowed. It was calculus, and it takes us back to dark years. We are in the strategy of tension “, said today the president of FdI Giorgia Meloni, who even before the question time had asked for Lamorgese’s resignation, defining her” an absolutely inadequate minister and we have seen him at 360 degrees, we have seen him on the ‘immigration, on raves and street demonstrations ”.
