The defense, in fact, wanted to denounce the condition of our judicial institutions of the past 30 years: “a criminal condition in respect to our Constitution, to the European jurisdiction and to universal human rights”, commented Giorgio Pagano, leader of Esperanto Radical Association.
In this comment there is also a joke about the right to vote for convicts and our political class: “If we consider the ones who are outside the gates…”.
