The speech by Fabiano Amati, lawyer, president of the Regional Budget and Planning Commission of Puglia, Pd regional councilor, as well as promoter of the regional law on vaccination obligation approved by the Regional Council a few weeks ago
Well the hard line announced by the ASL of Brindisi and Lecce towards the approximately 400 health workers who refuse vaccination. But that's not enough.
Now it is necessary to impose the sanctions provided for by the regional law, which apply regardless of any state law, as sanctioned by the Constitutional Court with sentence no. 137 of 2019, rapporteur Marta Cartabia.
The regional law provides for a sanctioning system that is not limited only to removing the operator from the departments at risk, or to opening a disciplinary procedure, but also (and above all) a fine of up to 5,000 euros.
Sanction that must be immediately imposed, in order not to frustrate the effort of the regional legislator and to avoid that the mere removal from the departments at risk can even be considered a reward, leaving the health companies also the problem of having to cover shifts in the chronic lack of personal.
The application of sanctions is also a duty, without any discretion, so any omission could integrate the crime of abuse of office.
