The Genchi Case – Montolli’s book reconstructs Genchi’s investigations, in particular WHY NOT and POSEIDONE, conducted at the time by Luigi De Magistris, current mayor of Naples. Genchi in 2009 was accused of illegally intercepting over 350 thousand people. For this reason his computer archive was seized and he was dismissed by the Police (in 2011). In 2014, by virtue of a TAR ruling, it was reinstated. On 31 March 2016 the Privacy Guarantor imposed a fine of 192 thousand euros for having duplicated and accumulated, without the necessary consent, data relating to the expert reports he performed on behalf of the judicial authority. The Genchi archive – the Guarantor wrote – consists of 1,162,510 personal / subject records, 351,991,031 traces of telephone communications, and 13,684,937 telephone users. Acquitted from the accusation of having made unauthorized access to the computer system Siatel (the registry of local taxes of the Inland Revenue Service), for the crime of abuse of office Genchi – along with De Magistris – was acquitted because “the fact does not constitute a crime”. In 2016, however, the Supreme Court annulled the decision solely for civil purposes, ordering a new trial (read).
