(ANSA) - Rome, January 31 - The president of the Italian
Council of State on Friday scolded the Italian public
administration for blocking checks on its activities.
Giorgio Giovannini, who heads the body that advises the
Italian president on constitutional matters and serves as a
constitutional watchdog for the public administration,
complained that the public administration showed "intolerance"
toward administrative magistrates, accusing it of obstruction.
Giovannini also charged that "the mismanagement of public
affairs" forces the magistrates to "not let their guard down".
"It is paradoxical to think that protections (for citizens)
could be delaying development".
