Meanwhile, in Taranto, the carabinieri of the Noe, of the Nucleus on occupational safety in Rome and of the local provincial command carried out an inspection in the former Ilva plant. The investigations of the Taranto prosecutors point to the hypothesis of a crime of destruction of means of production and embezzlement. In Milan, instead, the investigators hypothesize the crimes of distraction of assets from bankruptcy and informative manipulation. The Milanese prosecutor's office, in particular, argues that the disappearance of the shield would be used as an excuse to request the cessation of activities. In short, Arcelor Mittal would have already planned the closure of the plant, blocking the procurement of raw materials.
From Castelvetrano, in Sicily, the political leader M5S Luigi Di Maio used the news arrived from the Milanese prosecutors to claim that "ArcelorMittal wants to leave and has the wrong business plan: this thing of the shield was obviously a lie", also because "ArcelorMittal is leaving also Poland and South Africa and there the shield was not there ".

Next Wednesday, the court in Milan will hold a hearing on the use of the request for withdrawal made by the French-Indian giant. Arcelor Mittal points the finger at the legislative provision that removed the criminal shield, arguing that the contract signed in recent months explicitly provides that a change of laws may constitute an element to disengage. It is possible that the confrontation with Mittal may continue in the coming days, in parallel with the judicial developments. If Arcelor Mittal's farewell were to materialize, the Government could implement a temporary nationalization, with the aim of maintaining production continuity.
