“After the arrest, I’m not ashamed to say, I went to a psychotherapist for a few months. The fury that Il Fatto is working against me makes me think that a greater balance, perhaps even with professional support, could be also help them in understanding reality “. Speaking, in an interview with Adnkronos, is Simone Uggetti, the former mayor of Lodi acquitted on appeal in the trial in which he was accused of auction disruption in relation to a tender for the management of two municipal swimming pools. Accusation that led to his arrest in 2016. After Di Maio’s apologies, which caused various discontent within the M5s, the battle of the newspaper directed by Marco Travaglio does not stop: “I – Uggetti says – I think they are in love of an idea, which was their idea of reality that in a magical game was self-reinforcing, but which was actually a very biased perception. It is, I think, not realizing that that season, those moments, have been overcome “. Instead, what “they still haven’t understood is that there is a fundamental difference between admitting that they have made mistakes and admitting that they have committed a crime”. “I – remarked the former mayor of Lodi – have always collaborated with the magistrates, always. Magistrates whom I respect deeply and whom I have respected even in the hardest moments, because they do a delicate and difficult job”. After all, “everyone can make mistakes, but it is not because a doctor makes a mistake that one no longer goes to the hospital for treatment”. And he clarifies: “For me now is a positive moment, but I do not forget what happened. In not forgetting what happened to me, I continue to have respect for all people, including those who accused me”. he refers to the attempt to delete WhatsApp documents and messages: “There was the trigger of a figure who is technically called agent provocateur, otherwise I would never have moved – Uggetti says -. That was not my initiative. It was my initiative following the agent provocateur. And anyway I never admitted having confessed, because I never confessed. I always wanted, yes, to collaborate with justice “. When” I said ‘the mistakes that I did was done for the good of my city ‘, I was in shock because I was arrested. I didn’t even understand why I was arrested; it is an absolutely “how to say,” I certainly did it in good faith “. And, he reiterates, “the ‘mistakes’ are one thing, the ‘crimes’ are another thing. They are two very different things. I – he concludes – unfortunately make many mistakes and I always try to improve myself; I think instead that those who insist are of the poor people who need a psychologist. I am serene “.
