Political-mafia electoral exchange. This is the accusation made by the Dda of Catanzaro against Marcello Manna, mayor of Rende and president of Anci Calabria. The district investigating judge has ordered house arrest for the first citizen. Precautionary needs, he writes in the ordinance, “inferable from the modalities of the fact (having entered into a political-mafia electoral pact with top members of organized crime) and from the personality of the suspect who, albeit with a clean record, demonstrated a predisposition to commit a crime by descending to pacts with members of a mafia association, in particular with the D’Ambrosio group “. The Dda cites, in support of the thesis, the declarations of the repentant Adolfo Foggetti, which “constitute a further element underlying the existence of the precautionary needs, evoking lasting contacts over time with the organized crime of Cosenza”. Foggetti’s words refer to the electoral campaign for the municipal councils of Rende in 2014. “All members of the Rango-Zingari and Lanzino-Ruà federated clan – says the justice collaborator – mobilized to campaign for the lawyer Manna , with the exception of Maurizio Rango, who questioned and requested by me on this point had to tell me that his family members and / or relatives residing in Rende were particularly close to Principe “. Foggetti recalls the support, according to him, offered to the criminal lawyer and says that he would have been “thanked by Marcello Manna himself for his electoral commitment”.
