The three municipal administrations of the province of Naples were dissolved in just 105 days for the Camorra incursion. Fifteen weeks to see the repeal of three elected councils and in which the Council of Ministries has identified possible interference by organized crime. The three cities to which Vesuvius is similar are visible from different sides.
How different is the political color of the three administrations to ax against possible collusion between politics and organized crime, which, according to the prefect’s assessment, knows no difference between the centre-left and centre-right.
The last administration to fall yesterday was that of San Giuseppe Vesuviano, where the next elections should have been held in 2023. The mayor, Vincenzo Catapano, was elected in June 2018 with a coalition of civic lists, but with the declared proximity of the first citizen of the league. This rumor had been doing rounds in the political circles for a few weeks so that this decision did not come suddenly. For San Giuseppe Vesuviano, it is the third disruption in thirty years since 1993 and 2009 involving alleged collusion between the administrative machinery and crime. Upon hearing the news, Meyer argued that “for us, years of apparent struggle speak and open to organized crime”, expressing his intention to appeal to TAR.
The Prefect of Naples Claudio Palomba, pending the completion of the procedural process of the dissolution decree of the President of the Republic, ordered, as a precautionary measure, to hand over the mayor, the council and the municipal council of San Giuseppe Vesuviano. Managing the body for the Prefectural Commission composed of Deputy Prefect Aldo Aldi, Deputy Prefect Agnies Scala and retired Second-Tier Area I Manager Antonio Scosze.
Appeal to the Administrative Court already presented by the former mayor of Castellamare di Stabia, Gaetano Cimino, a local manifestation of Forza Italia. His administration was the first of three to be sent home prematurely by the Council of Ministers (the election for the renewal of the Assembly should have also taken place in 2023 in this case). It was February 25. The relative decree outlined how “the permeability of the body to the external conditioning of organized crime has caused serious harm to the interests of the community and the credibility of the local institution”.
Meanwhile, on 5 May the municipal administration of Torre Annunziata was dissolved due to alleged mafia infiltration. Here Vincenzo Asción, the representative mayor of the Democratic Party elected in 2017, had actually returned home for several weeks, resigned on 16 February, anticipated and followed by a number of other administrators, some of whom (including the mayor) came under scrutiny. As part of an investigation into alleged bribery in exchange for public contracts that jailed the former manager of the technical office and the former deputy mayor. The two disintegrations in two and a half months that made the city of Vesuvian tragically known, Giancarlo Ciani, the reporter of the newspaper ‘Il Matino’ who had been killed by the Camorra, wrote, an incredible record.
