Left-wing magistrates faction
Magistratura Democratica (Democratic Magistrature, MD) on
Saturday said it had come under "unjustified" attack from the
government which allegedly accused it of plotting against
right-wing Premier Giorgia Meloni's executive.
"In recent days, Magistratura democratica has come under serious attack from leading members of the government and the media", MD said in a statement.
"It has been accused of having cultivated 'conspiratorial aims' and of wanting to play a role of 'judicial opposition'.
"MD firmly rejects such accusations".
It said "the political-media aggression that has hit us therefore has no justification, but would like to force us to account for a freedom, that of associating and assembling, provided for by the Constitution".
