Genoa – The Ligurian section of the Italian Confederation of Farmers evaluates the use of a liability action towards public bodies considered essentially helpless in dealing with the wild boar emergency and, more generally, wildlife.
“With the arrival of the new commissioner for African swine fever we are witnessing the same old immobility – attacks Stefano Roggerone, president of Cia Liguria – we have witnessed proclamations, urgent plans, costly and useless fences, reluctant hunters, bombastic commissioners, politicians who they do nothing but shift the blame onto anyone, not having produced any killing, not having followed up on any of the measures that the Region itself has written in the containment plan and, above all, not having implemented any useful act to overcome any limits that the current legislation could set, means having achieved a management of the swine fever problem and not only that, simply irresponsible ” .
For the trade association, “it is useless to cry out the alarm for our agri-food sector and the pork supply chain and do nothing, except slaughter healthy animals without even providing adequate refreshment for farmers. A reprimand is simply shameful of cloying responsibility that can only confirm the inadequacy of a technical and political structure in managing situations in which competence and awareness of the responsibility that must be exercised is needed. Sorry to think of a liability action. We would like those who have the task of governing to do so without waiting for a sentence”.
