ROMA Not only the vice president of the Superior Council of the Judiciary David Ermini and the Attorney General of the Court of Cassation Giovanni Salvi. In the spring-summer of 2020, the former member of the same CSM Piercamillo Davigo confided to other members of the self-governing body of judges the existence of ajudicial investigation into a Masonic lodge blanket in which important names and some magistrates were involved, which in his opinion was not proceeding as it should have. In a generic way and with some more or less details depending on the interlocutor, but revealing to everyone the name of one of the magistrates involved: Sebastiano Ardita, another toga of the CSM, his former friend and current partner, with whom he interrupted all relations since March 2020. Immediately after this date, the Milanese prosecutor Paolo Storari had handed him the secret minutes of Piero Amara, the lawyer under investigation and already convicted of corruption in judicial acts who spoke of the alleged lodge Hungary. Complaining the inertia of the prosecutor Francesco Greco.
Failure to report
as if by alerting his colleagues (the robed Giuseppe Cascini and Giuseppe Marra, the layman Fulvio Gigliotti, but probably also others), Davigo had continued his game against his former friend, while in Milan the prosecutor Storari engaged the one against his boss, accusing him of not carrying out the necessary investigations on Amara’s revelations. A challenge that could now translate into disciplinary and transfer proceedings due to environmental incompatibility. Up to now, nothing has been done to the CSM because, as sources internal to the institution confirmed yesterday, the Council operates only on the basis of formal acts and according to codified procedures; in the presence of information which is in itself inadmissible because it is unrelated to formal and institutional channels, any initiative would have been incorrect and could have amplified untraceable rumors. In short, without an official act by Storari or Davigo, we could not proceed. Everything had remained confined to the corridors of the building until the autumn of 2020 (after Davigo left the CSM with his pension), when the same reports brought by Storari were delivered anonymously first to a newspaper and then to another. According to the Public Prosecutor of Rome, it was the former secretary of Davigo to the CSM, Marcella Contrafatto, who sent them. For now she has refused (as is her right) to explain how she got them, and so it will be wholoved to do it the same Davigo.
It is probable that later the prosecutors of Rome will listen to the councilors to whom the former toga told briefly what he had learned from Storari, to understand who and why he had seen or held those secret papers. Davigo would have spoken only to Ermini to also possess the minutes (all formally classified). But for him, as for the others, it was enough to know that Davigo had informed the pg Salvi. He is entitled to request information from the Milan Public Prosecutor’s Office and the other judicial offices involved, as he did. The perplexities about the behavior of the former colleague who has not formalized any complaint (nor has the prosecutor Storari invited to do so), or about the validity of the accusations against Ardita, have produced nothing else. Only a few days ago arrived there public denunciation of the director Nino Di Matteo, also the recipient of an anonymous envelope with the interrogation of Amara in the passages on Ardita and an accompanying letter with a warning tone, like this: Look here with who you are accompanying. But the former anti-mafia prosecutor, who talked about it with the interested party, felt that he could immediately verify the blatant slander against his colleague. Because, for example, Amara recounts that Ardita was introduced to him as a member of the lodge by the former director of prisons Giovanni Tinebra in 2006, as a prosecutor in Catania; but Ardita had stopped working in the city of Etna for at least 6 years and – above all – in 2006 she had long since broken off all relations with Tinebra.
The secret list
Di Matteo and Ardita have already been heard in Perugia, where the prosecutor Raffaele Cantone opened the investigation to verify the existence of the Masonic faction which – according to Amara – recruited magistrates, lawyers, professional politicians and senior police officers. . The attorney claims to have a list of 40 names, but he never delivered it. The umpteenth mystery of this intricate and toxic story that seems to fuel blackmail and revenge.
