Andreotti convicted of slandering judge
(ANSA) - Rome, May 4 - Italy's highest court on Tuesday upheld the conviction of seven-time premier Giulio Andreotti for slandering a judge who gave evidence in one of his mafia trials. During the marathon trials, which ended with the ex-Christian Democrat's acquittal in 2004, Andreotti gave several interviews in which he described Rome judge Mario Almerighi as "mad" because he linked Andreotti with a high-court judge who became famous for quashing sentences on technicalities. The Court of Cassation on Tuesday ordered Andreotti, 91, to pay Almerighi an as-yet-undetermined sum in damages because he "never denied" his statements against the judge, "assertions which went far beyond the bounds of freedom of expression". Andreotti was cleared of mafia association but judges ruled he helped Cosa Nostra until the watershed murder of a top party member in 1980. Judge Almerighi filed his suit against Life Senator Andreotti in 2000, accusing him of continued and aggravated slander through the press, radio and television. Almerighi had testified during Andreotti's trials that he was convinced the ex-premier protected supreme court justice Corrado Carnevale, dubbed the 'sentence killer' by the press for his consistent overturning of mafia sentences on minor technicalities. At the time, Andreotti described Almerighi as a "false witness who told infamous lies for which I think we should send him before the CSM", the Supreme Council of magistrates, the judiciary's self-governing body. Andreotti also said at the time that not taking legal action against the judge ''would be like leaving a lighted fuse in the hand of a child". These statements represented a "serious affront" to the judge's personal honor, Almerighi argued in his 14-page suit. The judge went on to recall that in the ruling clearing Andreotti ''no mention was made of the need to take action against me for committing perjury.
This would gave been obligatory had the court any reasons to suspect that I gave false testimony under oath''. photo: Andreotti voting in regional elections in March
