Napolitano tells new magistrates to be 'balanced, impartial'


Rome, June 11 - The Italian president warned newly
appointed judges on Tuesday to exercise particular prudence
given turmoil in Italy's political and institutional climate.
"Independence, impartiality and balance in administering
justice are indispensable more than ever in a context of
persistent tensions and difficult equilibrium at the political
and institutional level," said Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano, addressing newly appointed magistrates at the
Italian presidential palace.
Three-time premier Silvio Berlusconi has long maintained
that Italy's judicial system is plagued by allegedly biased,
left-wing magistrates on a witch-hunt to persecute him in his
numerous proceedings.
He does not currently sit in the fragile left-right
government, but high-ranking members of his center-right People
of Freedom (PdL) party do, such as PdL Secretary Angelino
Alfano, who is both deputy premier and interior minister.
