from the Milan editorial team

The rapper's statements in court in Milan in 2020. The consumer association has reconstructed the changes in the company's structure over the last five years

“I would say I have nothing because everything is registered in the name of my companies, so I have nothing.”: This is how Federico Leonardo Lucia, also known as, replied: Fedezto the question asked of him In court in Milan in 2020 «if he was the owner of real estate or registered movable property: ships, motorcycles, cars…». We read it in one exposed sent by in the last few days Codacons At the Financial police from Milan and Rome. For the consumer association, the rapper would have used “an expression that highlights, in a synthetic but effective way, a personality prone to exploiting to his own advantage the mechanisms through which personal wealth is hidden”, a situation in which this is very The case is that situations of tax avoidance or outright tax evasion can often arise.

“During a trial, I was asked by the judge what movable and immovable assets were registered in my name,” Fedez confirmed. I answered the truth that I have nothing registered in my name and that's why they technically are destitute because everything is registered with my family's companies, as is the case with many entrepreneurs in this country. If I had said otherwise, I would have lied to a judge and committed a crime.”

In the exhibition Codacons asks for clarification about the companies that are associated with Fedez. Through a technical report prepared by Gian Gaetano Bellavia (former consultant for Report), The association has reconstructed a scheme that summarizes all “assets attributable to Fedez”. and all the corporate structure changes that affected the rapper’s companies.”

“The group is firmly in hand Zedef company, who belongs to Fedez's family of origin and, alongside him, is also one of the mother and father who also hold key functions in the company itself – we read in the complaint. Over the course of a five-year period, numerous exceptional operations took place that resulted in the Group hiring new employees always different setups. Further and specific considerations can be made by assessing the nature of the extraordinary operations carried out. The choice to activate institutes such as reverse mergers and asymmetric non-proportional fissions highlights the mastery of sophisticated and highly complex advisory systems that go beyond a simple economic or development necessity, as can be seen from reading the relevant notarial deeds (extremely detailed) and from the financial flows well presented in the attached documents a very, very complex tax operation. Another aspect to be taken into account is the dense network of business relationships with new entities, which outlines the associated transformation and represents a strategic leap in quality compared to what has been observed so far. The situation deserves a more comprehensive analysis “To understand the underlying strategic reasons, which, although potentially legitimate, can sometimes go beyond this and degenerate into a form of “occult and transversal power, the knowledge of which must not remain outside the institutional activity of the Corps,” we read in the note Codacons.

The complaint was filed at the same time as the hearing before the Gup of the Court of Rome, Marisa Mosetti decide on the charges against Fedez for defamation of Codacons. At the center of the story are the rapper's allegations against the consumer association regarding a supposedly misleading banner published in 2020 on the Codacons website on the topic Coronavirus. The Rome public prosecutor's office has now asked the court to charge Fedez with defamation.

“Fedez has a short memory and cannot remember that the criminal cases against him initiated following a complaint from Codacons were not all archived,” the association explains in a note responding to Fedez’s videos . In fact, next May 6, the rapper will have to answer in a trial before the Court of Rome for the crime of defamation against Codacons and, on this occasion, will also answer the questions asked by our lawyers.”
