The Court of Cassation clarifies with a specific report that the law 283 of 1962 – called in jargon the “fraud-cutter”, as it penalizes illicit criminal acts such as the sale of soiled or badly preserved food – has never been repealed due to the simplification legislative.
After the press releases of the Ministries for Health and Administrative Simplification, the “Judge of legitimacy” (that is to say, the magistrate who expresses himself not on the merits of the events but on the application of the laws) has arrived, through the its Third Criminal Section, to put the word “end” to this ugly misunderstanding that the press has artfully assembled and maintained with the help, unfortunately, of authoritative personalities. We anticipate to our readers the full text of the report of the Court of Cassation, in which they can find the elements of law that the “Fatto Alimentare” has always supported.
The Supreme Court therefore confirms – for those who had not taken care to read a state law duly published in the Official Gazette – that the law-delegation for legislative simplification unequivocally excludes the repeal of any legislation that bears the words ” code “or” consolidated text “. And since the law 283/1962 is among them, it is not repealed.
