Salvini shifts Italy's security focus from mafia to immigration

12-Feb-2019

“The law addresses almost exclusively immigration, but a security decree should also be concerned with the mafia, which is clearly not a priority for Salvini. The only element in the decree that mentions the mafia regards the seizure of property.”

Senator Pietro Grasso, a member of the national anti-mafia commission and former prosecutor responsible for the 2006 arrest of the Sicilian mafia boss Bernardo Provenzano, said: “Unfortunately, the Italian government […] is prioritising immigration, making people believe it is an emergency, rather than fighting the real problems, such as the mafia. Meanwhile, the bosses are getting richer and richer.”

• Only 39% of workers at the 80 largest retail firms reported having regular work schedules and, even worse, 14% of workers reported having a shift cancelled on them in the month before they took the survey.
