Wanda Ferro (FDI): 6 million fund for acts of intimidation against local administrators for 46 Calabrian local authorities


By John

«There are 46 Calabrian municipalities – including, above 15 thousand inhabitants, the cities of Catanzaro, Cosenza, Crotone, Vibo Valentia, Lamezia Terme, Acri, Cassano all’Ionio, San Giovanni in Fiore, Isola Capo Rizzuto – and the province of Crotone, among the entities that received the Fund’s resources on acts of intimidation against local administrators. Thanks to the Interior Ministry, together with the Mef and the Ministry of Education, the fund for a total of 6 million euros relating to the intimidation suffered in 2022 was disbursed”. This is what the Undersecretary of the Interior Wanda Ferro (FDI), delegate for local authorities, says. «This fund – comments Wanda Ferro – aims to be a concrete help and a tangible sign of closeness for the many administrations that have been victims of despicable and vile acts of intimidation, often by organized crime or mafia-type. This is an important priority that Minister Piantedosi and I strongly wanted and on which we worked immediately: the Meloni government stands alongside the Municipalities, the mayors and all those administrators who every day fight against illegality and malfeasance. Let them know that they are not and will never be left alone.”
