«When we were opposition in Parliament we warned of the risk of the mafia's release from prison and the then minister Bonafede said that it was not true, but then the mafia were released from prison and interventions were needed to recover. There have been times when the state has not had its back straight. I also remember that before those releases there had been protests in prisons, so someone who maneuvered them perhaps wanted to go in that direction". This was stated by the vice president of Copasir, Giovanni Donzelli on the sidelines of the conference 'Talk about the mafia', underway in Palermo. A phrase that sparked the controversy. «The honorable Donzelli should just keep quiet and yet he still allows himself to launch false accusations. He should have left his job at Copasir months ago for having jeopardized, together with his friend Delmastro, national security by waving to the rooftops investigative information covered by secrecy. Today he repeats the hoax of releases during the pandemic. President Meloni's party is trying to hide its responsibilities for the measures with which it is paving the way for impunity for white-collar workers» is the reply of the M5S parliamentarians Stefania Ascari, Valentina D'Orso and Ada Lopreiato.
