He has not lost the habit of driving without paying attention to the road, without worrying about others, starting with people who are at risk of being overwhelmed and killed of the vehicle you drive. He doesn’t seem upset about having beaten and killed a young woman on Via Caracciolo., while driving a high-powered motorcycle, launched on a wheel (it was “wheel”, as they say in the slang), along the most famous and busy street in Naples. He is always there, this time behind the wheel of a car, smiling and joking for the camera, in front of a mobile phone operated by the person in the car next to him.
Fourteen months passed after the drama of via Caracciolo, when he arrived A chalet employee was run over, at the end of a night of work. Do you remember the case? Her name was Elvira Zriba, she went between August 29 and 30 a year ago, she was a waitress in one of the chalets in Mergellina. Night full of stress, many clients until dawn, the serenity of doing honest work and contributing to the domestic economy. A recorded video says more than a thousand words. You notice the traffic on the promenade, typical of summer nights, and then the arrival of a motorcycle at very high speed. The vehicle is on the rear wheel, behind the driver there is a girl. The vehicle is a ball of fire that suddenly emerges from the cars. Elvira can’t do anything.
He was almost done crossing the street., had to reach the sidewalk in front of the chalets to deposit the garbage produced by the place in the recycling container. An attentive and scrupulous girl who had crossed looking at the road, aware of the risks of often undisciplined traffic. Instant death, collective shock, also in light of an atrocious background: Elvira was actually Mustapha’s sister, a young worker who died in similar circumstances.
But let’s return to via Caracciolo, or rather, let’s go back to tiktoker history. More than a year later, the suspect is on the run. He is charged with vehicular manslaughter, but he continues driving, spinning around behind the wheel of a car. And he does not hesitate to be immortalized in a video that he uploads to social networks. Laughter, jokes, lack of attention behind the wheel, indifference to the rules. Possible? Elvira’s relatives, who collected the videos, asked the intervention of the Green deputy Francesco Borrelli, who has always been on the front line in the fight against arrogance and illegality. Borrelli explains: «More than a year later, justice has still not been done.
Images published on social networks raise indignation and angeronce again offend the destroyed young life and mortify the pain felt by the friends and family of a worker struck down in the prime of her age.” A young relative of Elvira, who grew up with the girl and was left fighting against an indelible pain, explains: “We feel nausea, disgust and horror when witnessing the publication of happy videos that ignore the most basic rules of civil coexistence.” But after a year and two months, where is the investigation into the road homicide of Elvira? Investigation by prosecutor Lari, last September the closure of the investigation against the driver was notified. It is possible that the first hearing is scheduled for the first part of 2024. Lawyer Giuseppe Catalano, defender of Alba Pazzi, the mother of Elvira, explains: “I learned that the investigators have concluded their investigative activity, we are waiting for the start of the process so that the culprits are brought to justice.”
