Italian government to hold emergency ilva steelworks summit

(ANSA) – Bari, January 18 – Italian government
representatives are to hold an emergency meeting late Friday in
Rome to discuss troubled southern Italian steel company ILVA.
The meeting, schedule for 7.30 pm local time, was called by
Undersecretary of State Antonio Catricala'.
Italian caretaker Premier Mario Monti is scheduled to
attend.
ILVA has been at the centre of legal and labour disputes
since last July, when a Taranto court ordered a shutdown of the
plant's smelting areas.
Months later, the court also sequestered manufactured parts
awaiting shipment.
ILVA appealed the court's seizure orders on the basis of a
government decree, which permits plant operation at partial
capacity while ILVA undertakes well-defined clean-up measures.
When the Taranto court rejected ILVA's appeal in late
November, the company declared imminent total shutdown of the
plant, sparking strikes and protest at its facilities in Taranto
and near Genoa.
The issue was temporarily resolved after Environment
Minister Corrado Clini introduced an amendment to the government
decree designed to overturn the Taranto court ruling.
The amended decree was overwhelmingly approved by
parliament in December.
The Constitutional Court must now decide whether the
Taranto prosecutor's challenge is admissible.
The Taranto prosecutor's office requested urgent review of
the case, but the Constitutional Court is under no prescribed
time constraints.
