Person responsible for death threats to Gratteri sentenced – News

Two years and ten months of imprisonment: this is the sentence imposed by the Salerno Gup on Salvo Gregorio Mirarchi, 32 years old, from Montepaone, accused of being responsible for the threats, contained in a letter sent in January 2023 to the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Catanzaro, to the then Prosecutor Nicola Gratteri, who today carries out the same functions in the Naples Prosecutor’s Office, and to another magistrate of the same office, Debora Rizza.


Mirarchi was charged with the crime of threatening a public official, aggravated by the mafia method. At the time he wrote the threatening letter Mirarchi was detained because he had been arrested as part of “The Keys” operation, conducted by the Carabinieri and in which a total of 21 people were involved, accused of criminal conspiracy to to drug trafficking.


Mirarchi himself, although not affiliated with the ‘ndrangheta, would have been close to mafia circles, and in particular to the Gallace gang of Guardavalle (Catanzaro).


In the letter Mirarchi stated that he would have implemented his criminal intentions against Gratteri and the deputy prosecutor Rizza if he had not been released from prison.


The trial took place with an abbreviated procedure in acceptance of the request made by the lawyer Francesco Palumbo, of the Salerno bar, Mirarchi’s defender. The public prosecution had requested that the accused be sentenced to 5 years in prison.


Mirarchi’s lawyer will evaluate whether to appeal against the sentence after having read the reasons for the sentence.
