The information system is currently being completed, and the pilot test will be held in Palermo, at the beginning of 2006.
Financed under the National Operations Program “Security for the development of the South of Italy 2000-2006”, the SIPPI information system will ensure the permanent monitoring of a strategic sector in the struggle against organized crime, especially in areas of the country with a high concentration of requests for seizure orders.
For the Ministry of Justice, the SIPPI system confirms both its constant commitment to the struggle against organized crime and the choice of information technologies as a key tool for achieving efficiency and modernization.
With SIPPI, in fact, the judicial authorities and other government departments and agencies concerned, may exchange information throughout the proceedings, collaborating online in order to streamline and speed up the performance of each partner’s tasks: the Ministry of the Interior, with respect to the proposal of the seizure measures and the provision of opinions as to the use of the seized property and goods, the Ministry of Justice, with respect to the actual adoption and enforcement of the measures, and the State Property Agency, with respect to the management of the seized property and goods.
For Finsiel, this is a further achievement for the country as a whole, improving the government’s capacity to efficiently implement the measures and follow them up, using state-of-the-art technology. The system, in fact, provides the most sophisticated web technologies and application cooperation tools, conforming to the Public Connectivity System (SPC) – CNIPA, to foster the collaboration and integration of the information databases and services of the different agencies and departments, while at the same time complying with the applicable security provisions required by the delicate nature of the data concerned.
