“There is the shadow of usury on the drama that companies have been experiencing for some time now, brought to their knees by bills which, in some cases, have even quintupled. For some it is the last resort not to surrender to the storm that is striking above all in the administration sector ». The alarm is raised by the president of Fipe Confcommercio’s Catania restaurateurs, Giovanni Trimboli, who warns and says: “We are awakening the sleeping Mafia monster”. Tonight at 20 the initiative “Sicily turns off the signs”against the expensive bills, organized by Fipe Confcommercio regional, which will see the lights of commercial activities go out simultaneously throughout the island in protest.

Strong positions are those of Sicilian traders who place the accent on the desperation of those who, to pay the utilities and not close their business, decide to turn to usurers. “In a historical moment like this – explains Trimboli – crime finds fertile ground among companies in difficulty who are denied access to bank credit“. The appeal is once again to the national government to “put in place all the tools to deal with this emergency.”

Reiterating that the mafia phenomenon of usury can only be escaped by reporting everything to the police, Trimboli relaunches tonight’s initiative: “We are aware that this is only the beginning of a tough tug-of-war that will see us opposed to those who are speculating without doing anything. We were told it was the market price that was going up. A reductive explanation since one could intervene on excise duties and VAT. It would also be desirable – he concludes – theopening a national crisis table to also find solutions shared with credit institutions and not to abandon to their own destiny those who find no other way out in order not to lose the sacrifices of a life ».
