Nordio: 'A budget to limit wiretapping costs 170 million a year'


Question time in the House. Pichetto: "Surveillance on petrol prices for timely measures" (ANSA)

Interceptions have "exorbitant and uneven costs

throughout the country" and a payment "that escapes any form of control: each prosecutor has as much as he wants. We are setting up working tables at least to make the liquidations homogeneous. And

my hope is that the judicial offices be entrusted with a budget

that cannot be exceeded annually".


Minister of Justice Carlo Nordio

said so during the question time in the Chamber, emphasizing that nothing will change either in terms of discipline or in terms of costs for interceptions concerning the mafia and terrorism.

Interceptions cost an average

of between 160 and 170 million euros a year

, the minister announced, and "they have often turned out to be fallacious and deceptive". to public ridicule without any need and above all in violation of the Constitution", added Nordio.


"intolerable burden of pain"


Thus the minister spoke of the "amazing number" of

suicides in prison


And he announced that the government intends to intervene with measures concerning prison operators, places of execution of the sentence and prisoners, to whom the State must ensure health protection.

And then he adds: "I find it irrational that the State spends hundreds of millions a year on useless interceptions when we can't find the money to pay for psychological support for the detainees".


The crime of torture will remain

," Nordio later assured.

The law lacks typicality, said the minister, "but this does not mean that the attention of the State towards illicit conduct should be abolished or reduced".

Nordio then defined

the events that took place in the Santa Maria Capua Vetere prison as "extremely serious"

, and said that for those events "70 members of the penitentiary police and 3 prison managers are still suspended from service".

"There will be no yielding" in the line of sanctioning unfaithful employees, he assured, "not only for the protection of victims but also for the vast majority of prison police who carry out a meritorious work".

The choices made by the Government on the fuel front "go in the direction of protecting citizens and businesses as much as possible, and of

constantly monitoring price trends

, in order to adopt all necessary measures should the need arise to intervene promptly". said

the Minister of the Environment and Energy Security, Gilberto Pichetto Fratin

in the question time.

"Considering the

uneven increases in fuel prices

, which have occurred since the beginning of the year, not all closely related to the elimination of the cut in excise duties, and having assessed the need to guarantee maximum transparency to final consumers - said Pichetto - in the Council of Ministers held yesterday, the Government approved a decree which aims to implement a price transparency operation, as well as to strengthen the control and sanctioning powers of the Price Guarantor".

On the structural reduction of excise duties on fuel "it is a legislative measure to be carefully evaluated on the basis of the trend of public finances and on the basis of the overall reorganization of fiscal measures", added Fratin.

The excise-free price when the government took office was 1.880 euros for diesel, the minister noted, adding that it subsequently dropped to 1.680 euros.

Due to the "need for additions regarding the application of some of the exclusion or further study criteria adopted by Sogin regarding some potentially suitable areas" to create the

national repository for nuclear waste

"in December 2022 Sogin was asked to carry out the requested investigations, in order to transmit" to the Ministry of the Environment and Energy Security, "as soon as possible, a decisive technical opinion and consequently allow the approval of the Cnai" , the National Charter of Suitable Areas, the minister said.

Pichetto then recalled that Sogin elaborated the Cnai proposal and transmitted it to the ministry on March 15, 2022 and in the following June at the request of Isin (National Inspectorate for Nuclear Safety) transmitted an updated proposal from Cnai.

Last November, "with confidentiality procedures similar to those used for the transmission of the Cnai proposal by Sogin, the institute forwarded the documentation to the ministry.

"The Government and my ministry will take steps to provide any useful form of assistance and support to facilitate the rapid definition of contractual renewals, where necessary and appropriate, even though they cannot replace the contractual parties themselves. I assure, in this sense, the

next convocation to the ministry of the social partners interested in the renewal of contracts that have expired

for the longest time, in order to stimulate, support, solicit their activities".

Thus the Minister of Labor and Social Policies,

Marina Calderone

, responding to the question time and emphasizing that "delays in contract renewals are a well-known issue".

For the increase in wages "the guideline is collective bargaining, which must maintain its central role in the development of wage dynamics", she adds.

"With the ministry offices we are evaluating the ways in which to adopt

regulatory instruments that facilitate the effective solution

" of the issue of renewing expired collective agreements, "which in some cases has been going on for several years", continued Calderone, explaining that he is referring " to the reaffirmation of the commitment to reduce the contribution and tax wedge by five percentage points during the legislature, a process that had already begun with the interventions adopted with the manoeuvre, but also to support decentralized bargaining and corporate welfare.extension to contractual renewals (and the related clauses on income increases) of forms of facilitated taxation in the wake and implementation of what has already been done recently with the Budget Law".

The government in office intends to avail itself, in full transparency and in compliance with the regulatory framework in force,

of high-profile professionals inside and outside the public administration to guarantee an efficient exercise of the functions proper to the executive

and to achieve the objectives considered a priority by each ministry according to the programmatic guidelines that every minister, just in recent weeks, has been illustrating in the competent parliamentary commissions", said the Minister for Relations with Parliament

 Luca Ciriani

, answering FdI's question on the "damage" caused by a "hundred of appointments" made by the previous executive in the period of processing current affairs.
