Against 'exploitation of the fight against the Camorra mafia'

Quarto mayor in tears at high-tension city council meeting

Quarto, January 8 - The mayor of Quarto near Naples, Rosa Capuozzo, launched a tearful plea against "exploitation of the fight against the Camorra mafia" during a city council meeting on Friday, after the meeting had to be suspended and police had to intervene to keep order. "All those who are exploiting this case should be ashamed of themselves," she said. Tension in the session escalated after a motion was blocked to discuss facts surrounding the case of former councillor Giovanni De Robbio, who was recently ejected from the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) for his involvement in a probe for mafia association. "The fight against the Camorra is everyone's fight, and everyone has to fight it. If, on the other hand, it's fought for other questions, that's exploitation. This has to be clear to the citizens of Quarto," Capuozzo said in tears. On Thursday, M5S leader Beppe Grillo put up an extensive question-and-answer post explaining wiretaps released December 23 and published in the Italian media Wednesday in which De Robbio had a supposedly incriminating - but in fact totally innocent, Grillo said - exchange with Capuozzo. Parties on all sides of the political spectrum have called for Capuozzo to quit.
