In record time, and although not requested, the sixth commission of the Superior Council of the Judiciary produces a negative opinion on the reform of the prescription proposed by the Minister of Justice Marta Cartabia. In line with what has been publicly claimed by the overwhelming majority of judges, the CSM rejects the mechanism of inadmissibility for trials that exceed the two-year duration on appeal and one year in the Supreme Court. The opinion was voted on by four out of six committee members. Two abstentions. “We believe the impact of the law to be negative – says the president of the commission Fulvio Gigliotti (professor elected by Parliament on the recommendation of the M5S), because it makes it impossible to close a large number of processes”. Not only that: according to the commission “the discipline does not coordinate with some principles of the legal system such as the mandatory nature of the criminal action and the reasonable length of the trial”.
