Trieste tax rights: the Cassation’s judgment is to be impugned

Trieste, 21 March 2022 – The Italian Supreme Court of Cassation lodged its decision, awaited since 8 February, in the first of the three legal actions for demonstration initiated by the International Provisional Representative of the Free Territory of Trieste – I.P.R. F.T.T. versus the Italian Government for breaches of Trieste’s legislation on taxes and on its international Free Port.

The judgment does not review the laws and evidences that constitute the lawsuit’s ground, it declared that national Italian Courts lack jurisdiction to sanction behaviors of the Italian State, and recalls the infamous nationalistic political theses regarding the alleged lack of legal existence of the Free Territory of Trieste. For those reasons, the decision is abnormal under several respects, starting from the unexpected fact that apparently it subordinates legality to politics, thus breaching the independence and other Constitutional attributions of the judiciary. 

Furthermore, the decision is not final, and it does not close Question Trieste, because it is being immediately impugned for annulment. This means the decision cannot prejudice the other pending lawsuits on the same subject, especially not the one regarding the international Free Port, and, in case it is confirmed, that allows, as previously declared, to transfer the dispute before the competent European and international Courts.

Free Trieste has joined the civil lawsuit for the international Free Port

and is organizing further interventions of citizens and enterprises

The Free Trieste Movement has officially joined civil lawsuit No. 5209/2019 RG, registered at the Court of Trieste on 6 December 2019 by the International Provisional Representative of the Free Territory of Trieste – I.P.R. F.T.T. which has summoned before Court the Italian Government, some of its Ministries and bodies, including the Port Authority, and the Municipality of Trieste for breaches of the legal and fiscal status of the international Free Port of Trieste (LINK).

This lawsuit is the most tangible and effective instrument to obtain the respect of the rights of Trieste, of all other States, and of their enterprises over the international Free Port, which exists since 1947 as a State corporation of the present-day Free Territory of Trieste, sub-entrusted to the temporary civil administration of the Italian Government by the Governments of the United States and of the United Kingdom for their role of primary administering authorities on behalf of the UN.

This initiative has already attracted more than 100 intervention, and all citizens and enterprises can join the lawsuit by scheduling an appointment with the Office of the Free Trieste Movement by email (LINK) or by phone at 040/2470772 – cell. 333/3337776 during the usual office hours
