Immediately after the controversy with the League ten years ago, in the middle of a government with Berlusconi, “and without any health emergency,” emphasized the minister of justice, gave its go-ahead to a law, 199, that “in the first three years has allowed about 9 thousand prisoners go to the detention home". Says Bonafede: “I have to deduce that, in 2010, again without any health emergency, that law was fine because there was the vote for the Northern League in the fourth Berlusconi government; while now that the League is in the opposition, does not go over well and it would be even, according to expose the questioners, a pardon masked'”.
Those rules were that those who had to serve still 18 months he could leave the prison. The current ones, stresses minister, would cover only 6 thousand prisoners, but with many exceptions, not only the actual availability of a home, but also the successful rehabilitation, and above all the absence of serious crimes, such as corruption, stalking, abuse in the family. Also excluded all those who, in the last 12 months, have received disciplinary sanctions for serious behaviours in the cell. Out of all those who participated in the riots. In addition, for those who exit, there will be the obligation of the electronic bracelet.
In any case, stresses Bonafede, up to today, and because of the decrees on the Coronavirus, they are only 50 prisoners released, those already in a condition of semi-freedom (I work outside during the day and then return to his cell to sleep), but now remain completely out of the prison. But the minister of justice declares that, today, is not yet possible to quantify how many prisoners may leave the prison due to the new decrees.
But behold, in his words, the situation updated on the prison, shocked two weeks ago by the revolts (27 those involved, 35 million of damage, 13 deaths from overdose from drugs stolen). First of all, and not to the effects of the decrees for the emergency, dropping the prisoners in the first three weeks of march, 61.235 pass to 58.592 effective, with a decrease of 2.643 people. The positive for the virus at the moment are only 15 prisoners. Sleep been distributed to 200 thousand masks, and organized 345 tents for the pre-triage. Cell phones - 1.600 already arrived and another 1,600 on the way - have replaced for now the block of direct talks with the members of the family, the block that was at the origin of the protest itself.
A speech to be made for the electronic bracelets. As anticipated by the Republic.it Bonafede confirms that at the time, according to tests made by the interior ministry, the bracelets are available for a 2600, and you can activate 2-300 a week. Therefore, a lower number compared to the people who may take advantage with the home detention, which requires also the availability of an actual home.
The matter of course, to hear the voices of the majority, is that not only the check out, but also the Pd insists on broader measures that allow the scarcerazioni. Ask Lucia Annibali, and Gennaro the Best of Italy alive, citing the words of Mattarella, and insist for “a true measure that will lighten the prison.” But on this line will move and Alfredo Bazoli and Walter Verini Pd. The Dem talk of “10 thousand prisoners in more, a bomb, and a health that puts at risk the lives of those who are and those who are working in prison”. Hence the invitation to “burn the stages to have more bracelets, taking in those who have committed serious crimes, but leaving out those who may be at home, with the results to have more space in the cells and, therefore, less tension, and also less risk of revolt.” The Pd does not insist on the dismissal of Basentini but urges Bonafede, “strengthening the summit of the Dap, appointing the deputy manager missing”.
Even in this time of emergency, the Republic is at the service of its readers.
