Pino Masciari, the Calabrian entrepreneur and witness of justice who for years he has lived under escort with his family for having reported the extortion attempts of the ‘Ndrangheta to the detriment of his construction company, he is contemplating returning to Calabria after the revocation of the protection measures announced by the Interior Ministry. His statements led to heavy sentences against the heads of the most important Calabrian mafia “families”.
“In light of the notification of last October 15 – he writes today – with which the Prefect of Turin informed me that the Ministry of the Interior – Public Security Department – UCIS, has started the procedure for the revocation of the escort, as no other communication has been received to datealthough aware of the timing of the administrative process, I acknowledge and undergo, after 25 years of struggles and complaints, of the clear will to revoke the escort to me and my family. In any case, I reserve the right to challenge the provision at the time of its notification, if the decision is definitively taken was not suitable for ensuring my safety and that of my family“.
Masciari, “for the avoidance of misunderstandings and possible exploitation”, states that the one he posed “it is absolutely not a political issuenor does it concern the decisions taken by the new government, if anything, it is the outgoing government that should have provided explanations on the matter ”.
However, he adds «it is evident that today the current executive is in the responsibility and in the conditions to be able to intervene in favor of me and my family. I bring to everyone’s attention that my life and that of my family can no longer continue in constant uncertainty, in the eternal fear that one’s existence could be undermined from one day to the next, without explanation, without any rational logic, from the assessments and decisions of the officer on duty. This is no longer acceptable! “
“To anyone – he maintains – he may be asked to live in this continuous state of suspension of his future and your expectations! We have already suffered too much from the harassment of a system that, instead of protecting us, has often left us alone at the mercy of ourselves. It’s not just the contingent “escort yes / escort no” situation, it’s a matter of principle! I who offered my life and that of my family to the state, in defense of constitutional principles, helping to clear the system hatched by the ‘Ndrangheta and its collusion with the strong powers, rooted in all social and institutional levels, I cannot now be considered a burden and treated as such! It is not humanly tolerable! ”.
“They exhausted me – he complains – in many years of continuous tug-of-war for the recognition of my rights! Now I no longer feel I have the energy to counter decisions that in fact have already been taken, to fight against an impenetrable rubber wall that for years has not allowed me to look at my future with serenity. For this I say enough“.CopyAMP code
