Ingroia opts to 'leave' but not 'resign' from magistrature


Aosta, June 19 - Ex-anti-mafia prosecutor Antonio
Ingroia chose to stop working as a State attorney but will not
resign, his boss, the chief prosecutor in the northwestern city
of Aosta, Marilinda Meneccia, said on Wednesday.
The decision effectively suspends him from the post and
implies that Ingroia, who sparked allegations of political bias
in the judiciary when he went into politics last December, will
be declared out of the judiciary but could eventually ask to
return to work as a magistrate.
After his disappointing foray into politics in February's
general elections, Ingroia clashed with the judiciary's
self-governing body, the Supreme Council of Magistrates (CSM) in
April following its decision to appoint him as deputy prosecutor
in Aosta.
The surrounding region, Val d'Aosta, is the only one in
which Ingroia did not stand for elected office with his
left-wing Civil Revolution party when he stepped aside from his
role as magistrate to run in general elections.
Ingroia, previously an anti-mafia prosecutor in Palermo,
said at the time the CSM's decision to post him in Aosta was a
'punishment' for entering politics.
Earlier this month Menneccia initiated action against
Ingroia in Italy's supreme Cassation Court alleging he continued
to pursue his political interests longer than permitted.
The prosecutor had been allowed to take a temporary leave
from office to campaign for election but allegedly continued in
politics even after his party folded following its debacle in
the national vote.
On Wednesday Ingroia said leaving his work as a prosecutor
was a "much-suffered and difficult decision", adding however
that he could not continue to "suffer discrimination from
politicians in the CSM" which forced him "to react".
