Justice, Maiorino: “Without M5s it would be a bad reform”
“It must be clear to everyone that without the M5s the criminal justice reform would have been approved as proposed by Minister Cartabia. That is, with a text that had raised numerous perplexities, if not the alarmed concerns, of all the experts in the sector. , from the CSM, the ANM to individual magistrates and criminal lawyers. And also from many citizens. The contribution of the M5s was fundamental, to avoid a scenario of thousands of trials in smoke: thanks above all to the determination and argumentative ability of Giuseppe Conte , the country will have a profoundly improved reform in substantive and not superficial aspects “. This was underlined by senator M5s Alessandra Maiorino, on the sidelines of the meeting with Giuseppe Conte.
“Of course, some political forces do not care if we will have a more effective justice or not, but only to carry on their anti-Bonafede mantras. We, on the other hand, are convinced that we have brought home an important result for all Italians”, adds Maiorino. .
“It was hard to be in government for a political force like ours, which grew quickly and remained without a leader for a long time. Now finally – concludes the M5s exponent – the new Statute will be voted on and we will equip ourselves with an organizational structure and a true leader, Giuseppe Conte, who has already demonstrated his value on the field. Now we will be able to really deploy all our strength, always and only in the interest of citizens, to build a more just country where inequalities are no longer ‘artfully fed according to the cynical logic of’ divide and rule ‘, but fought following the guiding principle of our Constitution “.
