On the sentence of the ex Ilva ‘Environment sold out’ trial, “I rebel against a justice that tramples on the truth. It is like living in an upside-down world, where those who have worked for the good of Taranto are condemned without the shadow of proof. A legal monstrosity endorsed by a popular jury strikes us, those who never got a penny from the Riva, who uncovered the factory, who imposed avant-garde laws against industrial poisons. yet another proof of a deeply sick justice “. This was stated by Nichi Vendola, commenting on the sentence that sentenced him to three years and six months in prison. Read also “Know the judges who have committed a serious crime against the truth and against history”, continues Vendola. “They humiliated people who have dedicated their entire lives to fighting for justice and legality. They offered Taranto not guilty but sacrificial lambs: we were not the accomplices of Ilva, we were the ones who broke a long silence and a widespread complicity with that company. I have been silent for almost 10 years defending myself only in the courtrooms, now I will no longer be silent. This condemnation for me and for a scientist like Assennato is a shame. I will fight against this carnage of law and truth ” , concludes the former Apulian governor.
