Crime and Justice: Italy will introduce a new resolution inspired by judges Falcone, Borsellino

NEW YORK, OCTOBER 3 – Addressing the UNGA Third Committee, Italy announced today that next week it will present a  resolution on the U.N. Program on the Prevention of Crime and Criminal Justice and the implementation of the Palermo Convention inspired by the work of two Italian judges killed by the Mafia, Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino.

Massari informed members of the Commission, whose mandate is the worldwide promotion and protection of human rights, that Italy hopes to build “through open, transparent and inclusive negotiations” on the success of a previous text which was sponsored by more than 100 delegations.

The Italian Ambassador highlighted some of the qualifying points of the new text, which stresses the importance of access to justice for all, particularly the most vulnerable groups, and of policies targeting young people in particular. The resolution will also contain a section on the prevention of gender-based violence and violence against women and girls. These are all developments generated by the work of two ad hoc committees, the Ccpj and the Cnd, based in Vienna.

Massari recalled that this year marks the 30th anniversary of the killing of Falcone and Borsellino: “The Palermo Convention against transnational crime was inspired by the insights of these two heroes and other prominent Italian anti-mafia judges: that is, by the idea that in order to fight organized crime, international cooperation is essential even at the local level.” (@OnuItalia)
