The spotlight is also on the administrative life of Caivano Court of Auditors. The accounting judiciary sued the former mayor Antonio Falco, elected in March 2010, and six former councilors accusing them of having "engaged in grossly negligent conduct which contributed to the financial collapse of the institution, resolved by the municipal council on 18 June 2016". The notice was served by the Carabinieri of the Caivano Company Command who conducted the investigations. Affected by the act, in addition to Antonio Falco, are: Francesco Casaburo, Bartolomeo Perna, Enzo Pinto, Vincenzo Semonella, Antonio De Rosa, and Giulio Di Napoli, all from Antonio Falco's council. Everyone will have to appear in court in January 2024 to defend themselves against the conclusions and requests of the Regional Prosecutor's Office at the Jurisdictional Section of the Court of Auditors for the Campania Region. Specifically, the regional prosecutor's office requested that former mayor Falco be sentenced to pay 69.205 euros to the Municipality; and the condemnation of each former councilor to pay 31.142 euros (for a total of 256.059 euros) in favor of the Municipality. The Prosecutor's Office requested that the former defendant administrators be sentenced to the pecuniary sanction provided for by the legislation on public disruptions to the maximum possible extent, i.e. 20 times the amount of the office compensation last received by the Mayor and the councilors called to trial. Furthermore, the general prosecutor's office requested the disqualification sanction referred to in art. 248 of the Tuel, paragraph 5, which provides for the impossibility of holding, for a period of ten years, positions as councillor, auditor of local authorities and representative of local authorities in other public and private bodies, institutions and organisations. .

The investigations, coordinated by magistrates Licia Centro and Davide Vitale, – started in 2016 following the receipt of the bankruptcy resolution sent by the general secretary of the organisation. In the reconstruction of the accounting judiciary, the suspects "with their reckless conduct and casual management of public money, would have led to the financial collapse of a local authority already afflicted by various and gangrenous management problems, creating a favorable terrain for the development of organized crime and fueling a general climate of illegality, which has recently hit the headlines due to other, often well-known episodes". From the pages of the appeal with which the former administrators of the organization were accused of having caused the collapse with their reckless and grossly negligent conduct, it emerges that the financial statements, approved by the administrative team now defendant in the proceedings, were characterized by the exposure of residual assets non-existent, which fueled a fictitious spending capacity, from a massive amount of off-balance sheet debt, the result of an illegal procurement management, as also ascertained by the ANAC in a concomitant administrative investigation, with a total absence of any act and /o directive aimed at remedying the very significant accounting problems, among which the very low revenue collection capacity stands out, significantly lower than the national average.

Some of the administrators called into question today - we read in a press release - they appear to have already been the subject of the attention of the Accounting Prosecutor's Office with reference to the unfortunate affair of the management of Era's accommodation in the "green park" of Caivano, a matter which has been the subject of a weighty and amply reasoned conviction of the local jurisdictional section where the conduct and role of the former Mayor are highlighted above all, dominus of a system of illegality in the overall management of the institution, which was reflected in budgets contrasting with the most elementary rules of accounting, and first and foremost, with the principles of truthfulness and prudence in the formation of public budgets.
