Due to the sentence expressed by the litigation commission of the Senate for the restoration of the pension treatment of Roberto Formigoni, which must be considered valid "erga omnes", the annuity remains valid for Ottaviano Del Turco as well.
According to what we learn, this is essentially the acknowledgment of the Presidency Council of Palazzo Madama.
The ruling of the Litigation effectively annulled the Grasso-Boldrini resolution on stopping the social security treatment for convicted parliamentarians.
The presidency of the Senate is obliged to implement the sentence of the Litigation by 24. The state of affairs has sent the 5-star Movement into a rage which, according to the pentastellata Paola Taverna, has decided to lodge an appeal on the return of the annuity to Formigoni.
But the road to this appeal would seem rather tortuous because, according to parliamentary sources, the Litigation Commission, due to Formigoni's economic conditions, had issued an order that allocated a "maintenance allowance".
In the reasons there was express reference to the "social security nature" of the annuity.
The ordinance has never been challenged by the Secretary General of the Senate which is the only body delegated to appeal "in full autonomy".
"We are waiting for information (on the outcome of the annuity, ed). For now we have not received any formal communication. But I find it hateful to continue to call it annuity: my father's is a full-fledged pension after paying contributions for 20 years of political activity ".
This is said by Guido Del Turco, son of the former senator Ottaviano who should keep the check due to the 'erga omnes' validity of the sentence issued by the Senate Litigation Commission, which restored the pension treatment to the former Lombard governor Roberto Formigoni.
Asked on the phone, Guido Del Turco recalls that "there is a sentence of the Supreme Court and the pronouncement of five constitutionalists who equate the pension to the annuities of former parliamentarians. So continuing to use the word annuity and making a battle out of it is just a flag shake. It would be enough to read the cards rather than invoke legality ".
On his father he adds that currently "his health conditions are those of a man with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, at most he can take a walk".
