A version on the death of Stefano Cucchi that was “packaged” by the Carabinieri excluding “any possible involvement of the military” so that “the image and career of the territorial leaders and, in particular, of the commander of the Rome Group, Alessandro Casarsa, was not mined “. This is the heavy accusation that the court of Rome puts on paper in the substantial motivations for the sentence with which, last April, 8 soldiers of the Arma were sentenced for the misdirection carried out after the death of the thirty-year-old Roman, which occurred in ‘October 2009, seven days after his arrest. The single judge inflicted, among others, 5 years on General Casarsa and 1 year and 3 months on Colonel Lorenzo Sabatino. The defendants, depending on their positions, were charged with the crimes of forgery, aiding and abetting, failure to report and slander. In particular, the judge, after an eight-hour council chamber, sentenced Francesco Cavallo and Luciano Soligo to 4 years, Tiziano Testarmata to one year and 9 months, Luca De Cianni to 2 years and 6 months. Finally, Francesco Di Sano was inflicted 1 year and 3 months and Massimiliano Colombo Labriola 1 year and 9 months. In the document, the magistrate writes that “the extensive preliminary investigation made it possible to reconstruct the disputed facts and to ascertain a diversion activity carried out in the immediacy of Cucchi’s death, aimed at averting the suspicions that fell on the carabinieri to avoid the possible repercussions on the top command of the Capitoline territory “. And again: “the further conducts carried out in 2015, in the context of the new investigations by the Public Prosecutor of Rome” were “aimed at concealing those of forgery dating back to 2009 given the quality of the protagonists and the relationships between some of them, and that the facts dating back to 2018, during the trial of the so-called Cucchi bis, were intended to debase the credibility of Riccardo Casamassima, a relevant witness for the accusatory hypothesis “. According to the judge, therefore, “by removing the suspects from the carabinieri, the command action by the top of the Rome Carabinieri Group Command could certainly not be questioned, whose figure risked being at least weakened by the affair”. Speaking of the modified service notes, the court maintains that “all the accused were aware that through the conduct they carried out, the content of the annotations was modified and altered, thus allowing to represent a Cucchi who was ill. of his own, because he is very thin, drug addict, epileptic “. Speaking of Casarsa, the highest in rank among the accused, the judge affirms that the sentence is justified with “the negligence of the criminal act and the damage to the good of public faith, the repercussions it had in the real reconstruction of the affair, caused to the Carabinieri Corps, to the personality of the accused who, in spite of the oath taken and his capacity as Carabinieri officer, with the role of Commander of the Rome Carabinieri Group, conceived and determined the conduct of forgery, of the intensity of the willful misconduct that emerges from what was ascertained “. Finally, it should be reiterated that the Prosecutor’s Office during the trial and in particular during the indictment has repeatedly reiterated that “it was not a trial against the Carabinieri and any exploitation must be avoided. Both for formal and substantive reasons: the Ministry of Defense is it is a civil party, the most important acts – said prosecutor Giovanni Musarò during the indictment – were provided by the operational department and investigative nucleus of the provincial command of the carabinieri “.
