"The proposal of the ANM was the freezing of the prescription after the sentence, a different modulation and a differentiated treatment for those who are then acquitted on appeal does not seem an unreasonable solution. On the profiles of constitutional legitimacy the last word will be said by the Constitutional Court ", but" the stalemate "must be overcome and" the process of reform of the criminal trial must be resumed ". So the secretary of the ANM, Giuliano Caputo, on the sidelines of the Unicost congress, summarizes the position of the Association on the new award on prescription. "We think that the blocking of the prescription is right, and that it can also have positive effects, as in almost all the other legal systems. But the prescription is unrelated to the duration of the processes, which is an emergency. improper overlap which has led to a stalemate. Paradoxically, a state law is being discussed, which has entered into force, and the reform of the process has been blocked, "added Caputo.
"We won't vote for this mess. If they want to do it, they'll kick us out." To say it, at the address of Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, is the leader of Italia Viva, Matteo Renzi, in an interview with Corriere della Sera about the clash over the prescription. "We are not isolated - assures Renzi -, we are guarantors. And even if the prime minister does not seem to understand the difference between justice and guaranteeism, for us it is an important value. On the one hand there is Bonafede and unfortunately with him there is it is what remains of the reformism of the Democratic Party. On the other hand there are the penalists, the magistrates, the guarantors together with centuries of Italian legal civilization ". Asked why we want to force the prescription at this stage, the ex premier replies: "Forcing on the prescription is objectively absurd at a time when we have the coronavirus, the Frecciarossa accident, the negative GDP. And yet the forcing is by the judicialists, not by us. We are not forcing: we have only asked to take time with the Annibali award. One year to reflect on the best solutions and the others insist on the Bonafede flag. I understand the Five Stars who are in a frightening crisis. I miss the reason why the Democratic Party must lower the guarantee flag after winning in Emilia-Romagna thanks to a reformist president: there will be reasons that I don't know, but it is politically and logically inexplicable ". The knot of prescription, adds Renzi, "in the Senate it can be changed, we are not staying at all costs" but "our three ministers do an important job, they must go on".
