Davigo does not lose his hair in the attacks on lawyers. I Graffi di Damato
Piu I read in the Fatto Quotidiano – and where, hindsight
– Piercamillo Davigo on the “useless horde of Italian lawyers”, as in the editorial office they titled the article of the collaborator now devoid of the last qualms that could perhaps have warned the management of that newspaper when he was still a magistrate and, moreover, also a high councilor of the judiciary, the more I tried to imagine the reactions, always reading it, of two other former magistrates who for some time shared the front pages with him.
They are both called Antonio by name. Uno and Di Pietro, Tonino for his friends, also linked to Davigo by their common participation, during the years of the historic “Clean Hands” investigation, in the Milan Public Prosecutor’s Office led by Francesco Saverio Borrelli. The other is Ingroia, who gained fame in the Palermo prosecutor’s office as a ruthless hunter not only of the mafia, like the good soul of Giovanni Falcone, but also of their real or alleged accomplices or even political referents. That Falcone was instead accused not by a passer-by but by the already then mayor of Palermo Leoluca Orlando of having some cover in his investigations, keeping the suspects firm or hidden in his “drawers”, if not even the evidence on their responsibilities.
The names, indeed the surnames of Di Pietro and Ingroia came to me, reading Davigo about – I repeat – the “useless horde” of lawyers suggested by his article to the headline of the newspaper directed by Marco Travaglio, because both chose at the time to work as lawyers leaving the judiciary: one of his own free will, after having done some politics, the other in protest against the Aosta Valley destination assigned to him by the Superior Council of the Judiciary in 2013, after the failed success as a magistrate on leave in the general elections, in which he had even participated as a candidate for prime minister. And I say “even” because of the objective improbability of achieving such an objective with a list to which all polls attributed dimensions, or levels, from a telephone area code.
The only effect to which Ingroia ended up contributing was the defeat or the admitted “non-victory”, in the race to Palazzo Chigi, of the candidate and secretary of the Democratic Party Pier Luigi Bersani. To which the grillini – but also the then President of the Republic Giorgio Napolitano – also prevented from groped the formation of a government that was openly “minority and fighting”
I allow myself to doubt, barring denials of which I would gladly take note, apologizing to the interested parties, that Di Pietro and Ingroia feel that they are part of “a horde of useless lawyers”. Or, to stick only to the final text of Davigo’s article, to do their job believing that “the service of justice functions as a social safety net”, that is, “as a sort of citizenship income” enviable compared to that introduced by the grillini , given that the less fortunate lawyers manage to earn around twenty thousand euros a year. But they could earn even less if they were to increase in number, surpassing the primacy already achieved since there were 368 in Italy for every hundred thousand inhabitants compared to 147 in France.
In the absence of a voluntary thinning, by market law, or the introduction of a limited number at the University or the profession, what else should our lawyers live on if not too many and too long processes
This is the implicit question of the Davigo’s long and frank reasoning, all in all consistent with the idea already expressed by the interested party when he was still a magistrate, with equal frankness and equally equal bewilderment on the part of the writer, that the acquitted defendants and their defense lawyers had succeeded above all, if not only to “get away” with their tricks.
