'Save ILVA' law sent to Constitutional Court


Taranto, January 22 - A judge in the southern
port city of Taranto on Tuesday upheld a request by local
prosecutors to challenge the constitutionality of a 2012 law
allowing the troubled ILVA steelworks to remain in production
while much-needed environmental upgrades are carried out.
The challenge will now be passed on to Italy's
Constitutional Court.
Prosecutors argued that the law, initially passed as a
government decree before being converted by parliament, involved
a conflict in the attribution of powers between the judiciary
and the executive.
Last week the court ordered the seizure of steel and
semi-finished products from the plant pending the constitutional
court ruling.
The products, weighing in the region of 1.8 million tonnes
and worth a billion euros, are currently lying on the company
ILVA has been at the centre of a political and legal battle
since July when local magistrates ordered the partial closure of
its Taranto plant due to serious health concerns.
In November seven top company managers were arrested as
part of a corruption probe.
