Palermo prosecutors to contend Napolitano wiretap case


(ANSA) – Rome, October 12 – The Palermo prosecutor's office
will contend a case at the Constitutional Court brought by
President Giorgio Napolitano over its handling of wiretaps
recorded during a probe into alleged State-Mafia negotiations in
the early 1990s.
The prosecutor's office deposited the necessary legal
documents on Friday, a week before the deadline of October 19.
The case centres around recorded conversations between
Napolitano and Nicola Mancino, former interior minister, senate
speaker and vice president of the Superior Council of
Magistrates, who was under investigation at the time.
The Italian president asked the Constitutional Court to
intervene, saying that magistrates overstepped their powers by
wiretapping the conversations and failing to destroy them
afterwards, as the Constitution mandates.
The documents presented by Palermo magistrates on Friday
contain records of four recorded conversations between Mancino
and Napolitano between November 2011 and May 2012.
Police did not transcribe the conversations, the
prosecutors say.
The case is due to be heard on December 4.
