Angelo Burzi, the full text the farewell e-mail written before taking his own life

The full text – reported by the Ansa Agency and the Open website – of the email written by the former Piedmont councilor Angelo Burzi before taking his own life. A dramatic document, a very heavy indictment, which will cause much discussion in the coming weeks. “I am no longer able to further tolerate the suffering, the anxiety, the anguish that in recent years I have generated not only for myself but also in the people who are dearest to me.“. It’s a punch in the stomach the email that Angelo Burzi sent to some friends on Christmas Eve, shortly before committing suicide with a gunshot to the head. About sixty lines in which the 73-year-old former regional councilor and councilor, one of the founders of Forza Italia in Piedmont, says he is “certain of being totally innocent” and retraces ten years of trials concluded with an “unfair and politically violent sentence », The three-year sentence for embezzlement in the context of the“ Rimborsopoli ”affair which complies with the requests of the Attorney General Giancarlo Avenati Bassi and almost completely overturns the first instance judgment.

The hardest words in the email – from the unambiguous object, “The end of the story” – Burzi reserves them for those who supported the accusation against him, the one he calls “the black man”, without ever naming him, “the real villain of the story, the deputy prosecutor who from the beginning pursued his guilty logic, I would say politically guilty “. “Being a prepared and educated person, he did not give up with respect to acquittals of the first degree, but by appealing in turn he obtained the sentence in the subsequent appeal. Even more guilty in my opinion – he underlines – because, knowing in detail the facts that concern me, he insisted on his theses ».

«I am leaving in excellent psychic form, quite shaky in the physical one, certain that this extreme gesture of mine is the only way I can still take it … the future reduction and cessation of damage! Since I believe in God I am also sure that He will understand and that therefore I will not spend eternity in the flames of hell.», Burzi concludes, aware of the gravity of his accusations:« Whoever is the recipient of these words should know that they are authorized to use them as they see fit. I can only answer for that, but I won’t be there anymore. “

THE FULL TEXT OF THE MAIL by Angelo Burzi

Christmas 2021

Knowing to decide

I lived beautifully to my 73rd birthday. Then, in September, the problems began … the news of the hearings scheduled for the end of the appeal process and an initial back pain. Let’s start from this and, shortening a journey that lasted three months, we arrive at a Pet at the end of November, a biopsy and a CT scan that is anything but positive. Therefore, a near future of in-depth studies, surgical interventions and therapies that are not at all pleasant is promised … certainly not an exciting panorama, but it gets worse.
Justice is an example of the “worst”, not neglecting that the writer is certain that he is totally innocent towards the accusations made against him. At the end of the appeal process, last December 14, I got a three-year sentence for embezzlement carried out continuously from 2008 to 2012. The possible developments lie in a possible new appeal to the Supreme Court, which will most likely have a negative outcome again, let’s say at the end of 2022. And here the serious problems begin because the suspension of the provision of the annuity for the duration of the sentence will intervene. In the meantime, the Court of Auditors will probably have come alive again, demanding the consequences of the image damage I have caused, let’s say not a few tens of tens of thousands of euros.
Conclusions
I believe all this is subjectively unsustainable, trivially because with the annuity I live there, not having been enriched in the course of my political activity, and substantially because I am no longer able to further tolerate the suffering, anxiety, anguish that in these years I have generated not only myself but also around me in the people who are dearest to me, my wife, my daughters, my friends.
I prefer to give them today, now, a more violent dose of pain, but one-off … then their life can start again since they have, unlike me, a large portion of the future ahead of them, a future that I do not want to damage or put at risk with a useless further presence of mine on this stage.
Since giving up was never an option, frangar non flectar, I express my strongest protest by interrupting the game, leaving the field permanently.
It is also necessary to make a non-exhaustive list of the characters who have most negatively characterized this story of mine in almost ten years. First the judges of the first appeal trial, who, with a sentence that is very little to define unfair and politically violent, canceled the first instance sentence that saw me acquitted for non-existence of the fact after two years of hearing in the courtroom. Then the black man, the real villain of the story, the deputy prosecutor who from the beginning pursued his guilty logic, I would say politically guilty. Being a prepared and educated person, he did not give up with respect to acquittals of the first degree, but by appealing in turn he obtained the sentence in the subsequent appeal. Even more guilty in my opinion because, knowing in detail the facts concerning me, he insisted on his theses. Finally he triumphed a few days ago with the outcome of the renewed appeal determined by the decisions of the Supreme Court.
In this case, with the significant contribution of the president and rapporteur of the Court, the latest arrival on the scene, whose reasons are not yet known, we have to wait 90 days from the sentence, but it is evident that he has put a lot of his own into it, probably adding his evaluations of an ethical moral order, completely subjective and devoid of both substance and legal sustainability, to the demands of the prosecution. If the procedure had allowed it, I think it would have expanded them.
Finally, I wish that my abandonment is in no way connected with Christmas, it is only due to the concomitant physical absence of my wife, which makes it practicable today. However, I hope it is explicitly condemned for those who have been the contributor to it and a memory for those who, reading these few lines, could share them.
It is also important not to forget the positive role of the President Bersano di Begey who excellently performed her not simple role during the first degree of the process, reading the available papers, hearing those who had the title, distinguishing the expenses due to their inherence in the mandate of the councilors, severely condemning the guilty and acquitting others, including myself. In short, being a judge!
I am leaving in excellent psychic form, quite shaky in the physical one, certain that this extreme gesture of mine is the only way I can still take it… the future reduction and cessation of damage!
Since I believe in God I am also sure that He will understand and that therefore I will not spend eternity in the flames of the underworld.
Sincerely
Angelo Burzi

Ps: whoever is the recipient of these words should know that they are authorized to use them as they see fit. I can only answer for that, but I won’t be there anymore “
