Rome, September 13 - One person threatened to set
himself on fire as part of a string of protests across Italy
Friday over government plans to close or merge more than 900
judicial offices.
Lawyers, mayors and citizens came out in opposition to the
plan that is aimed at modernizing the system involving courts,
prosecutors, justices of the peace, and other elements of the
judicial process.
But in many parts of the country, particularly in the
south, residents complained the changes would reduce their
access to justice.
In Sala Consilina, a town in the southern Campania region,
a protester threatened to set himself on fire in front of the
courthouse.
The head of the Court of Naples, Carlo Alemi, sounded an
alarm over personnel reductions while in the province of
Salerno, councillors in the Vallo di Diano held a extraordinary
council meeting in the square outside the Palais de Justice to
highlight concerns.
