July 30, 2020

The Senate Hall has given the go-ahead to the request for authorisation to proceed against Matteo Salvini, presented by the Court of the ministers of Palermo, who accuses him of kidnapping for blocking, when he was minister of the Interior, the landing of migrants at the edge of the Open Arms.

The votes in favour of the report of the council for the elections were 141 and not have, then, reached the required quota or the absolute majority is equal to 160, because the opinion of the council, contrary to the authorisation, be confirmed. Contrary to the report of the executive 149 senators, one abstained.

Salvini: “I have a clear conscience, celebrate the cowards!”
“Against me, celebrate Palamara, the cowards, the smugglers and those who preferred the chair to the dignity. I am proud to have defended the uk: I’d do it again and I did again, because this is the only July landings are six times those for the same period a year ago, with the League to the government. Go forward, head high and with a clean conscience, I will look to tranquil my children in the eye, because I have done my duty with determination and common sense. I keep it close to the article 52 of the Constitution (‘The defence of the Fatherland is the sacred duty of the citizen’) and remember the words of Luigi Einaudi: ‘When the policy comes with justice, justice goes out the window’. I’m not afraid, I will not be intimidated and do not make me be silent: I remember that for all parliamentarians, sooner or later, will come the judgment of the voters”. So the League leader Matteo Salvini says the vote of the Senate.
