Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, Health Minister Roberto Speranza, Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese. But also the president of the Higher Institute of Health Silvio Brusaferro. to them that the Bergamo Public Prosecutor could send calls to hear them as people informed about the facts, about the failure of the red zone in Nembro and Alzano, Val Seriana. At the moment there are no requests, we are reconstructing the facts and I have nothing to add, says the assistant prosecutor Maria Cristina Rota. But soon the prosecutors could find themselves at a crossroads: go ahead, until the summons to be notified to Rome and Palazzo Chigi, or send everything to the Public Prosecutor’s Office, for territorial jurisdiction.
Magistrates have yet to define how to proceed. The intention, at the moment, to complete the acquisition of information on the Bergamo and Lombardy areas, after the hearings of the Regional Welfare Councilor Giulio Gallera and the Lombard President Attilio Fontana. Among the people still to be heard there will be, for example, the regional president of Confindustria Marco Bonometti, to understand if the presumed pressures on the policy against the red zone (denied by Fontana) were there or not, but entrepreneurs of the Val Seriana, where companies with significant turnover are concentrated.
Having defined the picture and reconstructed the different positions on the territory, the Prosecutor will have to decide whether to transmit the documents and information acquired on the missed red zone to the colleagues in Rome or whether to proceed, digging again, and possibly calling Palazzo Chigi for a convocation. the Capital, according to the prosecutor, the city where the decision was not taken: It was up to the government on Friday evening, triggering an applause from the Northern League front and a clarification instead from the Minister of Regional Affairs Francesco Boccia: Even the Regions could establish it, c ‘ a law.
Certainly in the list of convocables there is also Brusaferro, called into question by two notes that the Corriere has revealed with his investigation and of which the Prosecutor has so far only read in the newspapers): the first, on March 3, in which everything the Scientific Technical Committee which supports the government for the emergency, suggests the provision of the closure of the Val Seriana countries to government; the second, dated 5, in which the president of the ISS writes that although there is a trend similar to other Municipalities in the Region, the data in possession make it appropriate to adopt a provision that places Alzano Lombardo and Nembro in the red zone.
Nembro, in particular, between the end of February and the beginning of March, showed an R0 higher than any other country in Italy. But the decision advocated by the ISS did not follow and disappeared, only on March 8, in the cauldron of the general closure of the whole country. Was the political choice not to establish the red zone a crime? In the area of Codogno and 10 other municipalities, mortality increased by 370% between March and April. In Nembro and Alzano more than 700%. But proving a link between the failed measure and those numbers will be difficult.
