Ignazio Marino is the Mayor of Rome. He’s been a lot in the news since he took office in mid 2013. He started planning to leave private cars out of the Colosseum area, and he is now under pressure from a Rome corruption scandal (but he seems to be the victim).
One of his “battle” is aimed to improve the local police: first an immediate action..? No man can stay in tha same office for more than 4 years. This to prevent any possible case of corruption. Local police is against this action and has called for a strike on decembre 31st. A rapresentative for national governement said that this strike wasn’t legal and would have called for a legal reaction. Local police called the strike off and was set to go to work as usual.
Unfortuantely, that same night, 83,5% of the force couldn’t go to work. They felt sick and stayed home.
