Gennaro De Fazio, secretary of the aforementioned union, wrote a note, in the light of these numbers: “If the circumstances were not tragic, adding three escapes, one would have to ask whether the Government had not by chance thought of resolving the overcrowding and the prison emergency. The system is in disarray and politics has the moral responsibility of each victim. The minister (Marta Cartabia, of Justice, ed) ensures attention and priority, we continue to see only neglect and carelessness “.
