(ANSA) - ROME, OCTOBER 13 - The majority splits, according to what is learned, in the Justice Commission of the Chamber and avoids the vote on the opinion on the legislative decree of the government that incorporates European norms on the presumption of innocence. In favor of the opinion prepared by Enrico Costa (Action), who asked for the measures to be implemented, all the center-right, Italia Viva and ilMisto, against M5s, Pd and Leu, which, however, would have been beaten.


   The president of the Justice Commission, Mario Perantoni (M5s), given the start of the Chamber, postponed the vote for a week.


    The legislative decree incorporates some European norms on the presumption of innocence, introducing a series of norms in the Italian legal system.

Among them the obligation of the prosecutors to communicate with the press through official press releases and only "in exceptional circumstances" through press conferences.

In addition, in the investigations, words must be used that do not lead to consider the suspect guilty, also avoiding giving titles to investigations that induce this conviction in public opinion.

Furthermore, the accused's right not to answer questions should not be regarded as proof of his guilt.
