The investigation into the falsified data on Covid19 in Sicily. The house arrest of the 3 suspects in the Trapani prosecutor’s operation, Maria Letizia, was lifted Of Free yourself, the official of the Region Salvatore Cusimano and the employee of a company that deals with the computer management of the data of the Department of Emilio Madonia.
Suspension from service ordered
The temporary suspension of the service was ordered for the two regional employees, Maria Letizia Di Liberti and Salvatore Cusimano. This is what the lawyer Paolo Starvaggi communicates. “The accusatory framework totally revised and resized – says the lawyer of the executive Di Liberti – Notifications are in progress”.
Some accusations have disappeared in recent days
In recent days, the news had emerged that the charge against the director of the regional health department Letizia Di Liberti had been changed, investigated for forgery as part of an investigation into the false data on the progress of the pandemic communicated to the Higher Institute of Health. The Public Prosecutor of Palermo, to which the prosecutors of Trapani who initiated the investigation forwarded the documents, eliminated the part relating to false declarations on deaths from the dispute.
In the original reconstruction of the accusation by the department, fewer dead and less positive for the virus would have been declared to prevent Sicily from ending up in the red zone. The evaluation of the Palermo prosecutors is different: the number of deaths, in fact, does not affect in any way the decision that places the territories in one color band instead of another.
Today the manager was heard in the Public Prosecutor’s Office and argued that the “suggestion” to the ISS would come from the councilor to include Sicily among the areas at risk because, although the data were not yet such as to require an immediate choice in that sense, the trend was very worrying.
The investigation, which brought the manager to house arrest, also concerns the former health councilor Ruggero Razza who resigned after the guarantee notice.
