Behind the judgment of cassation which cancels the compensation for the children of Marianna Manduca from Palagonia slaughtered by her husband with knife, there is the tragicomic concept of infallibility of the magistrates and its senseless defense to the bitter end.
For many years as the owner of the Octopus talian Private Detective Agency which deals with defensive criminal investigations, I have witnessed the worst aberrations of our judicial system caused by the alleged infallibility of the magistrates and by their virtual impunity.
On October 3, 2017, Marianna Manduca was stabbed to death by her husband Saverio Nolfo, leaving three orphaned children, who were immediately welcomed as children by a cousin of poor Marianna, Carmelo Calì, and by his wife Paola Giulianelli.
Carmelo and Paola were also rightfully very angry with how the Authorities had left their relative alone to die (or more precisely: to be killed) after 12 reports in which the victim had asked for help, therefore they sued the State and won, receiving 259.000 euros in compensation.
The decision of first instance did a bit of Justice. Like it was already reaffirmed by many great judges: in cases of gender-based violence, the sense of duty of the Authorities of Judicial Police who take care of the case makes the difference. People who work for the Italian Private Investigation Agency involved in separations and gender-based violence also knows this difference, since he or she has to often make up for the institutional shortcomings.
In case of Marianna Manduca, taking about thoughtlessness and inefficiency in an understatement; in fact, there was no difficulty in showing that there should have been done much more in order to protect poor Marianna and in awarding the compensation. Nonetheless, exactly that compensation implied a responsibility of the magistrate and unfortunately that is another taboo for our legal authorities, hence the Cassation sentenced that the compensation has to be given back.
In my last manual “The Italian Private Detective Agency of the Third Millenium” I mention a book of the journalist Stefano Livadiotti “Magistrates – ultracaste”, in which it is said: “a judge, caught in acts of lust with a minor in cinema’s bathrooms, incredibly escaped from the trial undamaged and even with a salary raise”. If you decide to read the files of this trial, you will discover the unimaginable borders in the art of scrambling, which (as the owner of the Italian Private Investigation Agency Octopus at Milan often in opposition to the judicial Authority) I witness too often.
The magistrates do not realize that without compensation of their errors they lose the most defining and professional component of their substance. They fail to understand that, giving up on a meritocratic and selective career, they promote incompetence and mediocrity at the expense of the Justice and of their own category (with which they seem to be even more concerned).
