Italy like Sin City

Do you know Sin City, the comic by Frank Miller ? You are more likely to remember the movie whose sequel will soon arrive to the cinemas. Sin City is a fictional US city where nearly everyone is corrupted, politicians and cops included.

Few countries experienced so many scandals as Italy, but until now the Police and the Judiciary had remained more or less unscathed.

The last round of shocking investigations is breaking even this last taboo. The Council of State opened an internal investigation amid allegations that some judges of the Administrative Courts were selling their decisions.

Today a colonel of the Italian Revenue Police was arrested and Deputy Commander in Chief of the Corps, general Vito Baldi, is officially under investigation together with his retired predecessor.
