Next Wednesday, the vote on the issue of parliamentary immunity will take in the Italian Senate. The defending argument of the League leader Matteo Salvini was leaked to the press: "Disembarkation was slowed by negotiations on redistribution."
The landing of the Gregoretti ship was not only slowed down by the attempt to find an agreement on the redistribution of the 131 migrants who were on board and who, in those frantic hours, were creating a headache for the governments of several countries of the European Union, but also by the alarm launched by Berlin. The Germans had alerted Italy to the presence of three “subjects capable of endangering national security”.
These are the main reasons that prompted the former Interior Minister to suspend the landing of the rescue vessel for four days. Salvini’s defense dismantles all the theorems artfully put forward by the left to try to “get him out of the way” by judicial means.
In an interview, released in the New York Times on the same day as the American president’s acquittal, Salvini compared the Gregoretti case to the impeachment for Donald Trump. The similarity, he said, was “a left that seeks to win by legal means what it cannot win by democratic means”.
The next battle in the affair regarding the military ship, which ignited the political debate in Italy last summer, will be fought next Wednesday at Palazzo Madama. The League leader, is “determined” to go all the way.
According to an indiscretion published by the La Presse agency, the League has been divided on the issue however. “Some senators and legal advisers are more cautious considering that from a judicial point of view, confirming in the courtroom the ‘yes’ to the authorization to proceed, advanced by the Court of Ministers of Catania, could be counterproductive given the absurdity of the accusation.”
For this reason, the same sources say, a few days after the vote in via Bellerio a reflection was launched to prevent the green light from becoming “a boomerang against Salvini”. Among the options on the table are that of leaving the parliamentarians of the Carroccio freedom of conscience of not participating in the vote in the Senate.
League member Erika Stefani will put forward the reasons of the Carroccio in favor of the authorization to proceed. Then the spotlight will shift to Salvini who, as was already done when he tackled the case of the Diciotti ship, will note that “the whole Italian government was aware and therefore agreed” that the Navy ship was “a safe place” to temporarily hold the irregular migrants.
Therefore it is “far-fetched to imagine” that migrants had been “kidnapped”. The foreigners who were on board were, in fact, all “safe and secure”. The landing, the League leader will later explain, was slowed down by the “negotiations for redistribution” in Europe and the “due verification” of the subjects.
The German government had, in fact, informed the executive led by Giuseppe Conte that there were at least three people “capable of endangering national security” on board the ship.
