Tensions, noise, violence, protests of the people, assemblies of the election campaign. Via Anzani has been in the center of the news for months now. Thus, the police forces increased their searches. On Tuesday afternoon, the nucleus of the Labor Inspectorate in Como closed the betting room located right on Anzani Street. The carabinieri carried out an inspection to verify compliance with safety regulations, but not only. During investigations with soldiers of the Como Company’s Mobile Radio Operating Unit, soldiers discovered various irregularities that led to the closure of GoldBet, which is run by a thirty-year-old citizen of the town of Arba.
In particular, the lack of a document to assess the risks to the safety of workers, the lack of information for employees about health risks, the omission of training workers as well as the installation of a video surveillance system without any permission from the authorities. Disputes that led to the suspension of the activity until the missing documents – mandatory – are prepared. Besides the criminal complaint, the gendarmerie also imposed heavy penalties on the betting room (several thousand euros).
The military’s intervention from the Mobile Radio Operating Unit and the Labor Inspectorate came in response to the episodes that made Via Anzani a hot spot in the city. During public meetings organized during the election campaign with candidates for mayor, residents loudly and solemnly called for “the closure of the betting room” as well as “a ban on the consumption of alcohol on the public road”. In Via Anzani, the last election rallies before the decisive ballot were organized by Barbara Meneghetti and Alessandro Rabinez.
