Time.news – “The book is an anti-tweet, precisely because of the in-depth research and the attempt to tell everything in detail. It goes against the trend of the mainstream thinking of dominant information, so today we only need to tickle the attention of readers with stories of gossip or intimate stories or events that, although they concern heinous crimes, but concern crimes that move outside the sphere of interests of potentates “. Talking to the Time.news is Fabio Repici, author of the book with Antonella Beccaria and Mario Vaudano “Money from P2. Casino kidnappings, mafias and neo-fascism: the long trail leading to Licio Gelli” (for PaperFirst types).
Fabio Repici, lawyer for many Mafia victims, ‘pulls’ his ears to the information stating that “from the beginning of the 2000s to today the greatest attention of the judicial news on television has always been for crimes such as: the killing of a child in Cogne by the mother who was then condemned; the killing of a woman and her son in Novi Ligure committed by a daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend “.
To then add: “We have always tried to tickle the guts of the reader or the viewer precisely to distance him from the dimension of critical thinking and attention to issues that should instead be the social name of the information, the information should be the dog as a guard of power, that is, it should be the dog that barks against power and controls it. We have only heard this dog bark in French, in Italy we have seen too many pet puppies “.
The book starts from three excellent murders, those of the magistrates Vittorio Occorsio, Bruno Caccia and Giovanni Selis. A book that also serves to tell the subversions in the “black” world, a thread that binds many facts. “Starting with Concutelli – explains Antonella Beccaria -, it would be a thread of different colors. Concutelli killed Occorsio, but he killed him not only for the activity of contrasting the neo-fascist subversion and the new Order”.
The investigations of the three magistrates
“All three of these magistrates – explains Repici – in the last period of their life and their activity as magistrates were dealing with the same things. Occorsio was dealing with kidnappings and money laundering of those kidnappings and in the his investigation had come up with names relating to the Ruhl casino in Nice which had been bought, a short time before, by an exponent of the Corsican mafia, Jean-Dominique Fratoni, with the money materially available from Roberto Calvi and Umberto Ortolani on mandate of Licio Gelli “.
Bruno Caccia, the author specifies, “in the last months of his life as a prosecutor in Turin, he was dealing with the hypothesis of money laundering and the kidnappings at the Casino of Saint Vincent and there too, the same names emerged. The direct connection emerged – he explains – between Jean-Dominique Fratoni and the other men of the casino of Nice and the top management of the Casino of Saint Vincent and all the subjects that orbited around the casino.
Giovanni Selis, as praetor of Aosta, on the other hand, “was dealing with some files for wear by the two main money lenders which were between the inside and outside of the Saint Vincent gambling house and who were connected to the management of the Casino, whose names will later emerge in the casino process derived from the so-called San Martino blitz, but the same names come out there too. Even four days after the attack with the car bomb suffered by Giovanni Selis, in the center of Aosta, in which he remained alive by a pure miracle, he received a phone call at home – received from his wife – an anonymous phone call to claim the car bomb and further threats and with the explanation that the attack was to be linked to the Marseillais “.
“The Marseillais is a mafia circuit that was the one that Vittorio Occorsio, the gang of the three Bs, was in charge of in Rome – explains Antonella Beccaria -, and that had carried out important kidnappings. But the circuit also integrated Jean-Dominique Fratoni, the Italian mafia bosses who in the meantime had entered the management of the casinos on the Côte d’Azur as well as in northern Italy “.
“And the paradox of the paradoxes is that, the night following the searches of the Public Prosecutor’s Office – Repici explains -, essentially overturning the casino in Saint Vincent like a sock and seizing all the current accounts of the casino and all the subjects who were linked to the casino, well the next night at the Bilia hotel which is a projection of the Sainvencant Casino, who shows up? The fugitive Jean-Dominique Fratoni, evidently concerned in some way with coordinating with the Italians for what the Hunting Prosecutor’s Office was putting at risk. If we analyze the documents we have analyzed, the same names come out “.
The negligence of the Italian press (according to the authors)
“The crazy thing – Repici affirms – is that the French press and not only the press, but also a great intellectual like Graham Greene, that is one of the greatest English novelists of the twentieth century, even before the attempted murder of Selis (December 13 82) and of the Caccia murder (of June 26, 1983) made a j’accuse on mafia infiltration in the casinos of the Côte d’Azur putting on paper the same names that, on the one hand, had come out in the events investigated by Occorsio, on the other they would have come out later in the investigation into the casinos and on the other hand they still came out in the investigation into the kidnapping of Cristina Mazzotti. In France there was a great deal of attention from the press and from committed thinkers. In Italy, however, everything remained hidden, indeed everything remained in absolute indifference “.
“The only story – he recalls – that was made for the events concerning kidnappings and casinos was only the copying of the thoughts or even the acts of the magistrates who had dealt with them. When the story of information is nothing else that the repetition of the acts of the prosecutors, Of course, it does not do a good service to the information “.
A book “full” of documents, available in the final part
“A paper archive that I had kept from the eighties onwards – he comments Mario Vaudano, a retired magistrate, who investigated some facts later covered by the book -. This allowed us to have absolute precision. “Vaudano who also tells of a personal and unpleasant fact.
“When I arrested General Giudice and General Lo Prete (in the so-called ‘oil scandal, ed), I discovered a note that made us understand how my wife had been followed and followed, together with my children and obviously me”. Because when you do your duty, too often, you risk yourself.
