Consulta, Verna (Cnog): “Government far from journalism needs, disappointed with Advocacy”

The Constitutional Court “obviously with its maximum and supreme autonomy will make the evaluations. But I am still disappointed by the mandate that the Government has given to the State advocacy because it is still far from the needs of journalism and citizens to be informed even in the wake of ‘requirement declared by the Council by ordinance last year “. Carlo Verna, president of the National Council of the Order of Journalists, said this to the Adnkronos at the end of the public hearing on the detention of journalists for the crime of defamation in the press held at Palazzo della Consulta and adds: “If last year I could understand a defensive position of the law, today in front of the ordinance I would have expected a mandate to the state advocacy to guarantee the journalist his social function. I hope that after this sentence a table will be formed to discuss all the needs of journalism “. (by Roberta Lanzara)
