LOCRI. “Lucano, as the undisputed dominus of the association, has exploited the hospitality system for the benefit of his political image”. The reasons for the 13 years and 2 months sentence of the former mayor of Riace, Mimmo Lucano, are very heavy. An organization “anything but rudimentary, which respected precise rules to which everyone subjected themselves, permeated by the central, driving and charismatic role of Lucan who allowed the participants chosen by him to enter the reassuring circle of his associative protection, in order to to achieve illicit profits, through sophisticated mechanisms, tested over the years and which each one performed by providing electoral support in exchange “.

It does not matter that the former mayor was found without a euro in his pocket, as he proudly boasted to support on several occasions: “If you stop to evaluate this condition of mere appearance, you would risk rewarding his cunning, disguised as false innocence, while ignoring the existence of a highly conductive evidence, which has given the College a very different image from the one he tried to accredit outside “, writes the president of the Court of Locri, Fulvio Accurate.

Just the other day, the former mayor, on the sidelines of a meeting in Campobasso, reiterated that “the welcome for me was a spontaneous fact, an impulse of the soul in front of people who have evident difficulties, a fact instinctive”. “The issue of immigration – he also said – will be unstoppable, people are fleeing wars, hunger and the strong injustices of the world”.
