Italian judiciary must clean up its act says Salvini (2)

Some magistrates 'act politically', League leader says

(ANSA) - Rome, February 15 - The Italian judiciary must clean up its act so that Italy can become "a normal country," Northern League leader Matteo Salvini said after being placed under investigation for allegedly insulting the magistrature Monday.
    Salvini said there were "many magistrates who do their job very well," citing anti-mafia prosecutors, but added there were those who "work a lot less, engage in politics, probe in one way only and release dangerous criminals in 24 hours". Salvini spoke after being placed under investigation for possible contempt after on Sunday calling the Italian judiciary "disgusting" for having indicted his No.2, Liguria regional councillor Edoardo Rixi, in an expenses case.
