Anti-Masonry is nothing new to the brethren of the fraternity. The forcing of making affiliation is also a matter members of the Craft have had to deal with. This is just the recent turn of events happening in Italy.

The Italian parliamentary Anti-mafia Commission (Italian: Commissione parlamentare antimafia) is a bicameral commission of the Italian Parliament, composed of members from the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate. The first commission, formed in 1963, was established as a body of inquiry tasked with investigating the “phenomenon of the [Sicilian] Mafia”. Subsequent commissions expanded their scope to investigate all “organized crime of the Mafia type”, which included other major criminal organizations in Italy such as the Camorra, the ‘Ndrangheta and the Sacra Corona Unita.

The Commission’s goal is to study the phenomenon of organized crime in all its forms and to measure the adequacy of existing anti-crime measures, legislative and administrative, according to their results. The Commission also has judicial powers in that it may instruct the judicial police to carry out investigations, it can ask for copies of court proceedings, and is entitled to request any form of collaboration that it deems necessary. Those who provide testimony to the Commission are obliged by law to tell the truth. The Commission can also submit reports to the Parliament as often as desired, but does so at least on an annual basis.

(ANSA) – Rome, March 1 – The parliamentary anti-mafia commission on Wednesday ordered police to seize the membership lists, from 1990 to today, of freemasons belonging to lodges in Calabria and Sicily. The lodges involved are: Grande Oriente d’Italia; Gran Loggia Regolare d’Italia; Serenissima Gran Loggia d’Italia; Gran Loggia d’Italia degli Antichi Liberi Accettati Muratori. There have been a few recent cases in which some masons have been linked to mafia activities in the two southern Italian regions. The freemasons’ lodges have denied having anything to do with Italy’s mafias: Cosa Nostra in Sicily, ‘Ndrangheta in Calabria and the Camorra in Campania.

  1. If there requirements for becoming a mason are like ours, they don’t qualify to be accepted into the fraternity being they are a criminal.

  2. Many brothers around the world are receiving this message through mail , lets keep an eye on what is happening in Italy

    Freemasons’ Civil-Rights violation in Italy
    A serious discrimination of Freemasons belonging to the four main Italian Masonic Organization is taking place in these hours. The Italian Parliamentary Committee on Organized Crime (Commissione Parlamentare Antimafia) has seized the lists of all Freemasons belonging namely to the Grande Oriente d’Italia , Gran Loggia d’Italia degli ALAM, Gran Loggia Regolare d’Italia and Serenissima Gran Loggia d’Italia, in the regions of Sicily and Calabria. These lists include over 4000 names and personal data. The Parliamentary Committee justified this act on the basis of the presence of an high concentration of Freemasons in the two regions of Italy with the highest rate of organized crime. Italian magistrates and investigators have been enquiring on the connections between criminal organizations such as Sicilian mafia and ‘ndrangheta of Calabria with businessmen, civil-servants and local politicians who in some cases are also Freemasons. During these investigations magistrates have obtained the names of the Freemasons connected with the criminal organizations both through voluntary collaboration of the Masonic organizations involved or through issuing search warrants for their headquarters. Investigations were limited to the member of Masonic organizations closely related to the people charged with connection with organized crime. But in these days the Parliamentary Committee on Organized Crime led by On. Rosy Bindi (Democratic Party – formerly member of the defunct Christian Democratic Party ) has unanimously taken on a new and unprecedented road to what they call the truth. During hearings in front of the Parliamentary Committee, the Grand Masters of the above mentioned four major Masonic organization of Italy (out of a total of over one hundred smaller Masonic groups) were asked to produce the lists of all the Freemasons in Sicily and Calabria, in spite of the strict laws on privacy. At their denial to comply the Committee issued on march 1st 2017 a search warrant for their headquarters and the lists were finally seized. The Committee strategy, although On. Bindi declared that the names of Freemasons will be kept secret an not handed over to the press, seems to consist in an indiscriminate and utterly general investigation of Freemasons in order to file preventively whoever is in a position to commit any possible illicit act or abuse of power. Moreover various members of this Committee, specifically Sen. Davide Mattiello (Democratic Party) and On. Claudio Fava ( independent left-wing Member of the Parliament) are submitting to the Parliament different draft laws aimed to limit the rights of Freemason, stating incompatibility between Masonic Brotherhoods and almost any job in the Italian Public Administration, from the army and law enforcement to civil-servants and university professors and researchers. At the same time one of the leading Italian magazines, L’Espresso , has recently published a long article invoking a total ban on Freemasonry and a close control on Service Clubs such as Lions International, Rotary Club and Kiwanis, all accused to be in some way connected to Freemasonry . Apart from this exploit the rest of the Italian paper press and tv and radio media has been almost silent with the exception of the Radio Radicale web site which is hosting the audio-recordings of all the Parliamentary Committee hearings with the Grand Masters. As it is to be expected the rest of information on the subject is currently left to a cloud of conspiracy theory web-sites and blogs. It is apparent that the action taken by the Parliamentary Committee on Organized Crime against Freemasons in general represents an arbitrary interference in the private life of citizen without any justified reason, apart that of belonging to what are still fully legal organizations and it is endorsing unjustified rage against Freemasons. The Grand Master of the Grande Oriente d’Italia has even expressed concerns over possible terrorist attacks targeting Masonic Temples after such an appeal appeared on Dabiq, the caliphate magazine. This conduct clearly represents an attempt of mass surveillance and a violation of articles 12, 18, 19 , 20 and 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Parliamentary Committee on Organized Crime has the same enquiring powers of any ordinary magistrate, but it’s not subject to any higher authority since it is composed by Members of the Parliament, thus precluding any possibility of appeal and any right to defence .Thousands of Freemasons in southern Italy struggle every day against organized crime and corruption conditioning business and politics, it’s not the presence of a few rotten apples that can justify the mass filing of free citizens.
    We appeal to everyone who cherish the global respect of Civil-Rights to follow up and watch closely the current situation in Italy.
