Fresh Fresh investigations as Fincanteri yard released
The director of Fincanteri’s Monfalcone yard faces investigations over environmental violations as authorities release parts of the yard seized under an ongoing probe into unauthorised waste management.
Fincanteri thanked the government and others who had spoken out in favour of the seizure being lifted. But it expressed surprise that, at the same time as the seizure was lifted, the prosecutor’s office of Gorizia had served the yard director with a notice of investigation for alleged violations of the Integrated Environmental Authorization.
According to Italian media, the initial probe – also under the Integrated Environmental Authorization – concerned the absence of the necessary waste handling permits among some of the yard’s subcontractors.
Federica Guidi, minister of economic development explained to Italian daily Il Fatto Quotidiano that the government's intention in seeking for the seizure to be lifted was to “safeguard the production and employment of an important industrial group put at risk by a preliminary injunction which concerned the interpretation of rules and not the real danger for the environment and workers' health."
