«Two months ago, in November 2022, the shocking revelations of Salvatore Baiardo, at the time a trusted person of a mafia boss, to Massimo Giletti for Mafia ghosts, on La7: “The Gravianos’ only hope is that the life imprisonment” and on the new government: “May a little gift arrive?…Maybe we assume that a Matteo Messina Denaro is very ill and makes a deal to surrender himself to make a sensational arrest?». And on the State-Mafia negotiation: “It’s never over””.
Those words spoken by a former gangster bounce back to today as reported by Corriere and cast a heavy shadow on the arrest of the boss who has been on the run for 30 years for multiple reasons.
Primarily because the blitz by the Carabinieri takes place almost thirty years after the arrest of Totò Riina who instead of leading to a gigantic celebration and promotion of the investigators of the Benemerita who carried it out, made them all end up in the mud and under investigation.
Their belated acquittals weigh like a boulder on the mafia justice that often winds its way through Italy as in the tremendous misdirection on the Via D’Amelio massacre in which the judge Paolo Borsellino and his escort were killed.
Secondly, because today’s Carabinieri are no longer those of twenty or thirty years ago. They are a military apparatus serving political powers as they demonstrated in the persecutions against doctors “guilty” of exempting patients at risk of complications from the vaccine.
In addition to this, loyal to the New World Order more than to the population they are supposed to protect, they claim to teach journalists the “sacred duty” of censorship especially when it comes to the damaged or dead due to the experimental gene serums that governments buy without interruption despite the decline in those who want to get vaccinated and the investigation by the European Prosecutor’s Office into suspicious purchases by the EU Commission.
Thirdly because they seem to have lent themselves to the game of the fugitive who by now is seriously ill will be treated at the expense of the Italians and risks spending more time in the infirmary (or under house arrest) than in his cell.
