(Adnkronos) – “I still continue to be convinced that if Giovanni Falcone had remained in Palermo it would have been better for him and for his personal defense as well. What I did not know at the time and which led me to have this polemical tone with the judge Falcone, was that Giovanni could not say it immediately, but had reached a breaking point with the then Prosecutor of Palermo, Pietro Giammanco. And at that point Falcone decided to accept the invitation of the then Minister of Justice Claudio Martelli and work at that level in Rome “. To say this, in an interview with Adnkronos, is the lawyer Alfredo Galasso. The reference is to the question and answer between the lawyer and the judge Giovanni Falcone, during the Maurizio Costanzo Show on September 26, 1991. During the episode, Galasso attacked Falcone by telling him “Giovanni Falcone would do well to get away from the ministerial buildings as soon as possible because it seems to me that the air is not really good for him. ” The magistrate replied immediately: “This means lack of sense of the state”. And Galasso: “No, it is the sense of the independence of the judiciary. In addition to the CSM, the magistrates in every moment of their career do not have to answer to anyone”. Falcone says: “Those who are independent must always answer”: Galasso closes the question and answer: “Anyway, Giovanni, I don’t like that you are inside the government building, I don’t like it”.
