I am sorry I disagree with you about your opinion on Henry John Woodcock and his work... Living in Italy you know that an accusation ca go to nothing because of the constant alteration of criminal laws particularly during the Berlusconi's era... And now, with Prodi, the dance is proceeding... So it often happens that people clearly involved in criminal acts (Mafia, taxescape, and so on..) are able to spend NOT A DAY in jail... the case of 7000 pages your are telling of, if we are thinking about the same one, was not dismissed for beeing frivolous but because, for complexity of laws the accusations could not be proceseed any more... thats makes a difference. Also Vittorio Emmanuele was not accused to be the leader of a gang but to share some criminal acts...
The telephonics reports of the talks of Vittorio Emmanuele di Savoia are in many ways really shocking, particularly the way he talks about possibility to have sex with girls for money or for help or for free... and he recognized anything, not only the fact he his sex-addicted... Self-Sex addiction and the greed of his wife are certainly 2 of the reasons of his real participation - a participation he recognized - in the facts.
Henry John Woodcock is not media-addicted judge, he is only a brave PM who tries - he is not alone - , (in the over-legalised italian society, one of the nations with the greatest number of laws who paradoxically punishs quite nothing of crimes that in other european and civilised nations could be strongly punished as using self power to avoid law, to have sex, to receive undue social money and so on and so on) to punish and prevent crimes the italian society is not successfull to prevent or punish. Mafia in Italy is not only a fact of traditionnal circles but a spirit shared unfortunately also by a man - for nothing a noble man - as Vittorio Emmanuele. Italy - with a govern of right or of left no matters - has to became a modern nation were laws are civilised and were people respects the law. That says Maria Gabriella his sister.
Amedeo di Savoia duca d'Aosta is not an angel. The way he acts with the media during his love affairs (and not only with the - a little bit isteric- mother of his daughter Ginevra) is not so perfect... but he was never involved in dirty affairs.
The question is Emmanuele Filiberto, a young man, married, with childs, certainly ambitious as a youg man in his position can be, and quite certainly not informed of most of the actings of the father... IS TRUE the voice who says that he manages to earn money with a Noble Knights Order ? That is the good question... and that is the matter it could be interesting to inquire to know the truth. personally I think that THIS could be an exageration of the medias... Also Maria Gabriella in some way, when interviewed, said something to his nephew: TO DO NOT BE BLIND, to be prudent in the way he manages to earn money and carry the life of his own family.
