On February 28th 2019 the Hon. Valter Verini (Democratic Party) has been appointed coordinator of the working committee of the Italian parliamentary commission of inquiry on mafias presided over by Nicola Morra (M5S).
The Committee on Mafia intimidation and conditioning in the world of journalism and information was established for the first time in 2012 and carried out an initial survey. In the subsequent legislature, the Committee was coordinated by Claudio Fava who led a larger investigation which availed itself of a report produced by Ossigeno per l’Informazione. The 2015 report remains the most complete document on intimidation and mafia infiltration in the information world.
