(from the correspondent Elvira Terranova) – He attacks the three magistrates who dealt with the investigation into the Via D’Amelio massacre, the lawyer Fabio Trizzino, lawyer of the Borsellino family, in the trial on the misdirection of the massacre of via D’Amelio. At the stand there are three policemen: Mario Bo, Fabrizio Mattei and Michele Ribaudo, accused of having indoctrinated the false repentant Vincenzo Scarantino to accuse the innocent. Words hard as stones, against the magistrates Carmelo Petralia and Annamaria Palma, both acquitted of the accusation of aggravated slander in competition and against the councilor of the CSM Antonino Di Matteo. He quotes a song by Fabrizio De Andrè, to say that “as far as they may believe they are acquitted, we believe that they are always involved in the same”. In other words, even six of the three magistrates did not end up on trial for the management of the false repentant Vincenzo Scarantino who unjustly accused innocents who were then sentenced to life imprisonment, according to the Borsellino family, they would have had a role in the “misdirection” and for this reason “they should apologize”. Immediate reply of one of the three prosecutors attacked. Speaking with Adnkronos is the former deputy prosecutor of Catania Carmelo Petralia. Who, brought up, says: “Fair play is not a dowry that can be demanded of those who have suffered very serious bereavement, but respect for the rules of the rule of law is another thing. This applies to private parties, but even more so. for those who represent the public party. In the name of those who are apologized, I wonder. In the name of those magistrates who stubbornly were accused, prosecuted and tried only to be acquitted with a reason that left no room for shadows or suspicions? even in the name of the judge who tried and acquitted them? Or in the name of the prosecutor responsible for this judgment that did not challenge the sentence? Perhaps someone else would have had the right to demand an apology, but fair play and in any case respect for the the pain of a terribly affected family prevented him from doing so. ” Di Matteo, contacted by Adnkronos, preferred not to reply. Trizzino uses harsh words from the beginning to the end of his speech. He takes it out on the magistrates, on the policemen. The defendants, all three present in the courtroom, addressed them directly asking “to tell the whole truth”. “Tell the truth, you have to tell what happened. I am sorry that it is only you who pay, but there was silence and negligence, an attitude that is perfectly comparable to the mafia association”, urges Trizzino. And he says: “Why was Bo brought from Volterra, where he was in an anonymous police station? And why did three other officials run away? Why did Salvatore La Barbera, Claudio Sanfilippo and Luigi Savina not accept the assignment to the Falcone and Borsellino Group? Who knows what they saw and didn’t tell us … “. Then he adds: “To define this process as ‘epochal’ is also an understatement,” he says. And he adds: “The prosecutor Stefano Luciani at the beginning of the indictment decided to apologize to the civil parties present, I would like to reassure Dr. Luciani that it is not he who must apologize, because he has made a fundamental contribution for at least 13 years to the reconstruction of these painful events – explains the lawyer Trizzino – There are other prosecutors who should have apologized. Excuses never arrived “and the reference is precisely to Di Matteo, Palma and Petralia. “Although we believe that they are somehow involved in the packaging of what was defined in the ‘Borsellino quater’ sentence as one of the ‘greatest misdirections’ in Italian judicial history”. Manfredi Borsellino was also present in the courtroom, he came to the trial for the second time since its inception, to follow the harangue of his brother-in-law. Because Trizzino is Lucia Borsellino’s husband. ‘Negligence and anomalies corresponded to a criminal design’ “I realize that it is a strong and painful affirmation – says Trizzino – but given the behavior held during their examination, as regards Dr. Palma and Petralia as suspects of connected crime , and Dr. Di Matteo, we say that ‘as far as they may believe they are acquitted, we believe that they are forever involved’, and I will demonstrate this in the course of this harangue the validity “. The lawyer quotes the text of a song by Fabrizio De Andrè, ‘Canzone del Maggio’, which reads: “Even if our May did without your courage, if the fear of looking made you bow your chin, if the fire has spared your Millecento, even if you believe yourselves acquitted, you are still involved “. “In the reconstruction of what happened after the Via D’Amelio massacre, the approximation, the anomalies and the negligence corresponded to a criminal plan carried out by men who had to reconstruct the truth”, says Trizzino. “The right to ascertain the truth was compromised in the preceding and subsequent events that led to the massacre in via d’Amelio”. “This is a painful moment, it is not easy to realize that members of the State Police, who have saw their colleagues fall on the field, they made this choice. You had to make a different commitment and not get involved in this criminal design that was the misdirection of via d’Amelio “, adds the lawyer. Who adds: “In the Borsellino family there is no desire for revenge but the desire that these men can rest in peace. Try to recover their dignity, said Giovanni Falcone”. ‘The misdirection began in the aftermath of the massacre’For the family Borsellino “the misdirection began already after the massacre in via D’Amelio. The denunciation of the car license plates was immediately hypothesized as a simulation. There was more TNT on via d’Amelio than the attack on judge Rocco Chinnici . After the attack on Judge Chinnici, you could see the rear compartment of the 126 and the number plates with respect to the car used in via d’Amelio, which was completely destroyed “. Then he defines “absurd” the filing of the Mafia and procurement dossier requested by the Palermo prosecutor in the summer of 1992 and “it was even hidden from judge Paolo Borsellino”. “As former magistrate Antonio Ingroia told us in the courtroom, Paolo Borsellino, after leaving a meeting at the Prosecutor’s Office, said: ‘You don’t tell me right’ and then there was the filing ‘. then the body of Paolo Borselini was buried “. And citing the trial on the negotiations between the state and the mafia, in Palermo, he says: “the real threat to the judicial body is the moment in which the Prosecutor Giammanco said: ‘stop because I did what I had to do’. And then how do you explain that phone call on July 19th at seven in the morning? As if to foretell the murder … “. The reference of the lawyer Trizzino is to the mafia and procurement dossier which was removed by the then Prosecutor Giammanco from Judge Borsellino and then was archived in the summer of 1992, after the mafia massacres. At the end of his speech a vigorous handshake and a brief hug with his brother-in-law Manfredi Borsellino. That he listened in silence, then put on his sunglasses and left the bunker room of the Malaspina prison in Palermo, without saying a word. Also today the lawyer Roberto Avellone, lawyer of the civil party of some of the family members of the escort agents of Borsellino, took the floor. “The presence of the secret services hovers heavily on the whole affair and acts as the guiding thread of the still unsolved mysteries of the Via D’Amelio massacre”. “First of all it emerged that the same Prosecutor of Caltanissetta, Giovanni Tinebra had direct relations with the Sisde, in the person of Bruno Contrada, in relation to the investigations on via D’Amelio, despite the law in force at the time forbidding any direct relationship between the secret services and the investigating judiciary, “he says.
