Salvini as Alfano: “No more violent ultras in the stadium”. The law provided for it, but it has been changed

Matthew Salvini slip, like Angelino Alfanoon the clashes between ultras Of Naples And Rome. Almost nine years later, on the wave of indignation, the “never again at the stadium” for violent fans. The Minister of Infrastructure, former Minister of the Interior, forgets that the law Beloved in fact he had foreseen it but in the end it was changed because it was unenforceable. A rule never applied, on which in recent years theNational observatory on sporting events he was perplexed and came to ask for an intervention since, according to many, he presented profiles of unconstitutionality. In short, Salvini slips more or less as did the then Interior Minister Alfano after the clashes on the occasion of the final Italian Cup 2014 in Rome in which the Neapolitan lost his life Cyrus Esposito. Yet the current maximum duration of expulsion from stadiums – extended to 10 years in case of recidivism – was regulated by him.

“These are not fans. Highway closed and Italian travelers stranded? Pay all damages out of their own pocket, e never again in the stadium”was Salvini’s immediate comment after the guerrilla that broke out along the A1 up to Arezzo between Neapolitan ultras and Romanists. Yet there was a moment in which the law, if applied in the literal sense, had foreseen gates closed forever for those who clashed with police or opposing fans on the occasion of sporting event. But the rule that hit Daspo’s recipients “from the side” was in fact impossible to apply and was changed just a few months after the clashes in Rome that cost Esposito his life.

L’article 9 from the law 41/2007which dealt with “urgent measures for the prevention and repression of phenomena of violence connected to football competitions”, forbade clubs to “issue, sell or distribute access titles to subjects who have been recipients” of Daspo. In short, a literal and restrictive interpretation risked closing the gates of the stadium forever to anyone who had suffered a Daspo, even twenty or thirty years ago. In the 2009 And 2011 even the National Observatory on sporting events, which falls under the Ministry of the Interiorhad asked for an intervention then the August 22, 2014 with a decree law of Renzi government. With that provision, the “were recipients” was replaced with “are recipients”, clarifying that only those who have a Daspo in progress cannot enter the stadium. And the was also added “over the past five years” to another ambiguous sentence of the article which reads “to persons who have been, however, convicted also with non-final sentence, for offenses committed on occasions or because of sporting events”. In short, changes made necessary by unconstitutionality profiles raised several times by the lawyers dealing with the matter, but not only as testified by the determinations of the National Observatory on sporting events.

To date, the Daspo, tightened and expanded since Security decree 2can last at most for 10 years in case of recurrence. After all, if he wanted (and was able), Salvini – who at that time had himself photographed with the AC Milan ultras boss Luke Luccialready known for crimes inside and outside stadiums – could have intervened with a “never again in the stadium” precisely with that provision which is one of his political banner. Having to rely on the “current danger” of the recipient of the provision, it is easy to understand how such a restrictive measure cannot fail to have a time limit. To have a Daspo right now, according to the most updated data dating back to October 31, 2022I am 6,343 people and during the 2021/22 sports season the measures issued were 1,741. Those over 6,300 names are entered in the “black list” manager since National Electronic Center from the State Police together with those who had a stadium offense conviction in the past 5 years, deducting Daspo’s time served for the same incident.
