De Micheli ensures that the damage to Ligurian operators motorway clogging will pay them Aspi

They will be quantified from December 2019

It seems to have become practice the disconcerting and hysterical way in which The Italian government has dealt with the Motorways affair Italy (Aspi), the company for shares several motorway routes including the one across Genoa 14 August 2018 by the collapse of the Polcevera Viaduct 43 people were killed. Instead of pressing for an inspection responsibility for the disaster, and instead of starting a serious analysis of the national highway management system already for many years invoked by authoritative observers, research summary of a culprit led the executive to indict the principal Suspect: Highways for Italy. It is not yet well whether the defendant is the company or its shareholders. To this instead of opting to revoke the concession, sacrosanct if the dealer has been guilty of serious defaults, 15 days ago the government decided the immediate hand over control of Aspi to a person who participates identifying it in Cash Deposits and Loans, controlled by the Ministry of Economy and Finance.

In the meantime, the series of checks and inspections Aspi's motorway network has been submitted to the led to the opening of numerous construction sites that have seriously traffic on Ligurian routes has been hampered. From here the motivated grievances of the economic operators of the region who to bring their protest to Rome they set up the committee "We save Genoa and Liguria", which today was received from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport by the owner of the ministry, Paola De Micheli. The outcome of the meeting - announced by the Ministry - was the decision to set up an MIT-Committee working group aimed at quickly identifying how to measuring the damage and quantifying it from December 2019.

So in sight there is compensation, evidently extremely difficult to quantify and just as difficult to distribute. Though there seems to be a certainty: the Ministry has announced that the Minister is committed to ensuring that the disbursement of compensation will be made by Highways for Italy.

There are two cases. O Paola De Micheli, through Cash Deposits and Loans, you already feel you own Aspi and therefore authorised to order the recasting of the expenses to the taxed parties, but at this point also borne by taxpayers being the state shareholder in the motorway dealership. Or is it a intimidation against Aspi. Taxpayers must hope that the latter will actually be recognised guilty by the judicial authority, the only criminal law.
