Moro, in a police investigation into former terrorist Persichetti, exchanging emails with former br Loiacono

There would be an exchange of emails with the former Brigadier Alvaro Loiacono – already convicted among other things for the murder of the young Missino Mikis Mantakas in 1975 – at the center of the Capitoline investigation that sees Paolo Persichetti under investigation for aiding and abetting and subversive association, in the 1980s in the Red Brigades-Union of Communists, the first former terrorist extradited to Italy from France and today an essayist and historical researcher. Persichetti is accused of having disclosed some passages of the first draft of the report of the Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry on the kidnapping and murder of Aldo Moro, material considered confidential by the investigators. And Loiacono himself would have been the recipient of this material, according to what emerges from the information of the Prevention Police of 21 December 2020, which Adnkronos was able to view. Basically, the investigators’ thesis is that the former terrorist was not doing historical research but was engaged in a political action aimed at a “general work of reinterpretation” – which could take “even the margins of a possible form of aiding and abetting” – of the role of the fugitives in the ambush in via Fani, in which, on March 16, 1978, the BR killed the members of Aldo Moro’s escort and kidnapped the leader DC. For that action Loiacono, a Swiss citizen, was sentenced to life imprisonment in absentia on charges of trapping Moro’s car blocking the road together with Alessio Casimirri (a fugitive in Nicaragua). But it is a sentence that, unlike that for the murder of Judge Tartaglione, Loiacono did not serve because the Swiss justice did not believe there was evidence to indict him. “Persichetti – reads the information – emerges in the e-mails analyzed also in reference to the sending to Loiacono of documents regarding a draft of a future publication relating to a reconstruction of the action in via Fani, from planning to its conclusion. with some changes, in a chapter “of the book” Red Brigades, from the factories from the spring campaign “, written by Persichetti himself together with the historians Marco Clementi and Elisa Santalena and released in February 2017. in particular, they contain a reconstruction of the action of via Fani in some ways dystonic with respect to what has been ascertained so far by the trials and by the various Commissions on the kidnapping of Moro “: a reconstruction” in some ways unpublished, based on the Morucci Memorial, and integrated on the basis of the contents of some books written by the Red Brigades themselves and of the new statements made to the authors by Moretti, Seghetti and Balzerani during a series of conversations between 2006 and 2016 “. “Reading the emails leads us to believe that the protagonists were ‘genuine’ in the crystallization of their memories, if only for the presumption of being able to discuss in a ‘confidential’ form”, it is observed in the information, where it is emphasized that “a The integrated analysis of the data inferable from these unpublished e-mails to be related to the official version present in the book and in the Morucci Memorial did not highlight any new elements regarding any other Brigades or subjects unrelated to the Red Brigades who may have taken part in the massacre “. In particular, in the information viewed by Adnkronos it is argued that “at least as described in the emails, Loiacono seems to have performed unprecedented functions compared to those encountered in the trial, although this information has disappeared from the book”. Therefore, according to the investigators, “the failure transposition in the book of some passages instead present in the emails implies a choice that could not only be of an editorial nature, but also ‘political’, taking into account the contradictions that had also emerged between the stories of the various terrorists interviewed and between these and the Morucci memorial and / or the members already published by some militants of the BR “. PERSICHETTI: ‘ASSESSING RELATIONS WITH SOURCES AND WORK RESEARCH IS NOT UP TO PM AND POLICE’ -” It cannot be a police authority or the judiciary to review the relationship with sources and judging how a researcher deals with the contradictions, difficulties, errors, illusions or memory holes of the oral sources at forty years from the facts “. So Paolo Persichetti comments on the new elements that emerged in the Roman investigation that sees him under investigation. “According to the policemen – writes Persichetti in a long post on his blog – we would not have (the book is the work of several hands, but to the police of the history is convenient to indicate me as sole author) correctly reported the information collected, for this reason I would have stained myself with aiding and abetting, in particular towards Alvaro Loiacono Baragiola. A demanding affirmation, which would find sense only if the policemen of the story had intercepted all the interviews held by the authors of the book in years of meetings with various witnesses and found discrepancies. Perhaps for this reason they came to the house, under the pretext of disclosing a non-existent confidential document of the commission (the annual reports and the draft reports are not part of the confidential documentation) to search for notes, sketches, floor plans, vowels, and other materials collected in the course of preparation of the first volume and in view of the second “. “DATA ON VIA FANI OMITTED FROM THE BOOK BECAUSE NOT VERIFIED” – “Anyone who has read the book is perfectly familiar with the meticulous work carried out, the significant new elements introduced in the reconstruction of the Moro kidnapping thanks to a laborious integration between documentary sources and new availability of oral sources, who have not pulled back, intending to give a definitive contribution of clarity in the reconstruction of the facts – says the former BR, now a historical researcher – We insisted with them that even the smallest detail be reconstructed, within the limits of the possibility that memory and documents could have allowed us. We witnessed the process of remembering in direct recording of some of them, witnesses who had to overcome and correct errors and illusions that had stratified decades after the facts “. “Today we know how the Red Brigades arrived on the scene that morning, all the weapons they wielded, how they organized the action, placed the machines, the escape route reconstructed in detail, and many other things about the political event of the kidnapping, wait that the Prevention Police seem to be of little interest – underlines Persichetti – Despite this, at the time of closing the drafts, at the end of 2016, we were unable to clarify an aspect of the escape route, which was previously ignored by all: that is how a reserve van was moved, placed in the Valle Aurelia district, which in case of need should have been used for a second transshipment of the prisoner. The discussion and confrontation with the other witnesses we were able to reach was heated but unfortunately not conclusive Having to go to press, we therefore decided to resolve the impasse by delimiting the information on two data we ascertained: we have never sc right that Loiacono had come down the stairs at the end of via Licinio Calvo together with Balzerani, Bonisoli, Casimirri and Fiore. We reported what Moretti argued and confirmed by everyone, that it was some of the members of the Roman Column who took part in the action who moved the van “.” The researcher’s job – concludes Persichetti – is a patient and stubborn work that never stops and in the following years we have repeatedly returned to the question. What does this historiographical work have to do with aiding and abetting and subversive association, you can evaluate for yourself “. Moro: over 500 signatures to release Persichetti archive
