Palermo writer Di Carlo’s definitive conviction for extortion in Reggio Emilia bar

Arrested in flagrante with a finance officer and another accomplice for extortion against a bar owner in Reggio Emilia, which occurred in 2011, a Palermo writer, Antonello Di Carlo, has been imprisoned as the conviction has become final. At the time of the incident, the finance officer, who was serving in another province, had abused his position by asking the bar owner for 2,000 and then 5,000 euros, threatening to activate checks by the finance department and local health authority if the money was not paid. The bar owner reported the incident to the carabinieri. The carabinieri, along with the finance department, copied the money that was supposed to be handed over and set up surveillance during the delivery. The man was arrested and his accomplices, including the writer, were also arrested in subsequent phases. The fifty-year-old writer was sentenced to five years in prison and a lifetime ban from public office. The sentence became final on February 28th, and on March 12th, the Reggio Emilia prosecutor’s office issued the order for his imprisonment. The measure was carried out by the carabinieri of the Main Station yesterday: he will serve a remaining sentence of 4 years, 11 months, and 26 days.
