Focus attention on what happens, spread the news and report these incidents to avoid repeating mistakes.
“Country that you go, customs that you find,” to quote a famous Italian saying as a term of comparison. More than anything else, what we want to imply is the fact that it’s right to denounce what happens around the world and in Italy, to avoid running into the same mistake and so they won’t be repeated.
It seems absurd, but an exchange of favors is almost always on the agenda. We aren’t talking about simple acts of courtesy, but rather of regrettable incidents that also go to the detriment of Italian justice and send one of the most beloved countries to the world. Those who hold power sometimes feel invincible and, above all, able to ask for anything they want. Is this really justice?
We boast behavioral ethics, morality, the values of the past which, unfortunately, is only part of the past. In reality, we find the past littered with gruesome actions that shouldn’t even be conceived in the imagination.
We don’t speak of a single episode, but of all those who succeed one another and who remain in tacit assent.
Entering into what happened in Lecce (South Italy), we could then suppose how many of these wrongs actually occur every day. And not only in the legal field, but in all sectors. There is always a “strong” figure. The one that holds power, which claims something from a slightly weaker one. The weaker power, unfortunately, is “forced” to subject to the stronger power’s directives for many reasons. Now, ethically we know that this isn’t right. Then why does it happen?
It would be nice if we all thought the same way and, at the same time. It would be nice we followed a straight path and lived quiet lives. It would be great if there were no violence, blackmail and abuse of power. Perhaps it’s a Utopian dream. But it’s hoped that one day, finally, we’ll learn to behave appropriately and that to all these wrongs will end.
The arrest of the prosecutor and the ASL managers
In prison, the magistrate of Lecce, Emilio Arnesano, who would have favored the causes of a lawyer and “sold” some investigations related to health managers. There’s talk of a crime of corruption deriving from what he has put in place and, therefore, he has been “challenged”.
He’s also accused of “crimes committed with abuse and sale of his magistrate functions. Indeed, during the investigations emerged episodes of corruption in judicial acts, of induction to give or promise utility and abuse of office. The public prosecutor, Arnesano, would have sold, on several occasions, the exercise of its judicial function in exchange for sexual encounters and other favors. In addition, with regard to three ASL managers, he would have guaranteed them the positive outcome of judicial proceedings against them, obtaining significant favors.
So, from what we can see, it seems legitimate to recall the fact that there’s a basic injustice and that, consequently, it seems right to no longer be “victims” of such harassment.
