If a friendly entrepreneur felt the need to taste a slice of the cake of public procurement in Ancona, there were no problems. It was enough to turn to Simone Bonci, the surveyor assigned to the service "Landslide maintenance and civil protection", ended up in jail with the accusation of corruption aggravated and defended by the lawyer Riccardo Leonardi (photo on the left). It was he who fed a cartel of friendly businesses and did it in two ways: the adoption of variations to the initial projects or the payment of compensation for non-existent or never executed works. "In this work there is bread, it is money immediately and goodSays Bonci in a telephone interception last August, when, for the Police, the surveyor was urging the entrepreneur Tittarelli to indicate a higher estimate of the works to be carried out and thus accept a contract, in front of which the private appeared hesitant. It is Bonci who is in the most serious position in the investigation into corruption in the Municipality because, according to the accusations of the Ancona Public Prosecutor, he was the one who took it bribes for 40 thousand euros in exchange for favors. But the scandal that shook the entire regional capital would not be portrayed by the image of the surveyor capable of acting with reserve, in the shadow of whoever was next to him. No, far from it. Apart from the fact that the prosecutors holding the inquiry renamed "Ghost jobs"In addition to the 5 arrests, Ruggiero Dicuonzo and Valentina D’Agostino also investigated 30 people, including 4 assessors. But then in the investigation of the Flying Squad and the Municipal Police it appears that, at Palazzo del Popolo, in many they knew, legitimized that corruptive system or, at best, pretended nothing happened. That's why in the order with which the Gip Sonia Piermartini welcomes the request for a custody measure in prison for Bonci and house arrest for the 4 entrepreneurs, we are talking about "an agreement of malfeasance far more extensive than the small nucleus enclosed in the charges". Otherwise how would you explain the fact that Bonci, intercepted in his offices, freely spoke of all the money traffic in favor of the same 4 construction companies with other municipal employees? Surveyors, project planners, fellow employees with whom he then prepared the altered statements to be sent to the executives, who signed, giving way to the material donation of the money to the usual 4 alleged corrupting firms. So everyone knew?
He knew he was being investigated and spoke to his colleagues: "A confession"
Bonci has not done any hesitation in revealing his trades even when, having become aware of a criminal case against him, he vents with a colleague and worries about the "tricks" in the management of the contracts, releasing what the magistrate recognizes as a real confession.
"Practically have been made of the acts where they have been paid with other funds, that is with the cemetery funds, the Passetto funds have been paid"
"Part of the work carried out at the Passetto da Molini had been liquidated with funds from the Traiano parking lot which does not include a ca … even with cemeteries"
"Works not done in the cemetery, that's the problem"
The joke: "When we go to jail …"
Yes, because if they needed money, Bonci wouldn't have taken long to entrust contracts for jobs that had never existed except on paper, to falsify the estimates of contracts and awarding contracts for overestimated works or moving advanced resources in certain contracts to other works where it made him more comfortable. Sometimes we even laughed at each other, like when an office employee, confronted with one of the accounting magic implemented by Bonci to find the money to bathe in a new house, had exclaimed: «So when they go to jail they have all the states signed!».
"Manarini lives there, do your jobs well"
In short, there was no shame in "a system that has by now been tested and substantially shared, which allowed us to improperly use to finance new jobs, sums that remain from previous contracts or assignments, without carrying out the necessary accounting and administrative steps, occurrence intentionally creating fictitious works to feed friendly businesses that then reciprocated with various utilities ”. Every now and then a job would stick out and Bonci would immediately lift the phone to give the good news to the "4 sisters" of the Ancona cartel. As when there were 4,500 euros at the cemetery of Candia to mount a raceway, "it's a proper house, half a day is done," said Bonci to Molini. Another 9 thousand euros for waterproofing the Traiano parking lot or for fixing the Varano cemetery, for which Bonci recommended Molini to work well because «Councilor Manarini lives there».
Towards warranty interviews
Now, however, we need to understand who is really involved in all this. The maintenance department, the councilor Paolo Manarini, was finished under investigation, but, besides the entrepreneurs, the only one accused of corruption was Bonci, now in prison: «He is tried, he must read the documents, he will clarify everything Said his lawyer, the lawyer Riccardo Leonardi, who is waiting for Monday, when the 5 arrested will be able to clarify their positions during the interrogation of the guarantee with the magistrate. Meanwhile, there remains a very heavy accusatory picture, in which public officials and private individuals agreed to rob the coffers of the Municipality of Ancona in a systematic and far from occasional way, given that, as emerges from the interceptions, Bonci did "projects" and, speaking of "a near future", he said to one of his corrupters: "No, it will not be the last thing we will do together …".
