Courts overloaded? Just freeze a bunch of criminal trials…

.. including, of course, one involving the Prime Minister (read Reuters report here): after all, it’s not a mafia trial, or one for crimes involving violence, workplace accidents or crimes carrying penalties of more than 10 years. It’s just a corruption trial.

It’s too bad that, instead of processing cases faster to get rid of the backlog in the Italian courts (and instead of resplicating the few success stories we have: read about Mario Barbuto in Turin in Abravanel’s Meritocrazia), the best solution our government seems to be able to find is to just put everything on the back burner, hoping that the statute of limitations will take care of things. Is this justice? If you’re an ordinary citizen and a victim of crime, how are you supposed to feel about this?
