Meloni repeats no to Donzelli, Delmastro resignations

Meloni repeats no to Donzelli, Delmastro resignations

State can't make deals with mafia or anarchists repeats PM

Premier Giorgia Meloni repeated Tuesday that two members of her Brothers of Italy (FdI) party should not resign over an alleged leak of sensitive information regarding the case of Alfredo Cospito, an anarchist leader who has been on hunger strike for over 100 days against the tough jail regime he is being held under.
    The two FdI MPs are Justice Undersecretary Andrea Delmastro Delle Vedove, and his flatmate Giovanni Donzelli, a member of the Copasir parliamentary committee that oversees Italy's intelligence services.
    They are at the centre of a huge political row with the centre-left opposition Democratic Party (PD).
    This row broke out when Donzelli revealed in the Lower House last week that Cospito had talked to mafia bosses about getting the 41 bis regime abolished and that four PD lawmakers had visited him in jail.
    Delmastro was the source of the information.
    Justice Minister Carlo Nordio, however, has said that the information was sensitive but not classified.
    Delmastro fuelled the row on Friday by saying that the PD lawmakers had given in to Cospito's demand that they meet other people being held under the 41 bis, including two mafia bosses, as a condition for the encounter with him.
    "The PD will have to explain that bow to the mafiosi to the public," Delmastro said in an interview with local daily newspaper 'Il Biellese', based in his home town of Biella in Piedmont.
    The PD has said it would take legal action against Delmastro and Donzelli.
    Meloni reiterated Tuesday "i don't think there is a need for (their) resignation.
    "The prosecutor's office is doing its job,' she added, "and the Ministry of Justice has repeatedly said that they were not documents covered by secrecy. And it seems to me that this sensitive information was already present in the newspapers'.
    This is why 'I have no reason to say that what is in the press cannot go to Parliament'.
    She added: "The state cannot come to terms with those who threaten it, this applies to the mafia yesterday and to anarchists today", amid mass protests and acts of vandalism by Cospito supporters in Italy and abroad.
