“The emergency measure aims to protect both a strategic national energy center and the jobs that are so important for Sicily and the whole country,” said Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni on Thursday.

The decision on the Isab refinery, one of the largest in Europe, is initially valid for up to twelve months. According to Meloni, around 10,000 people work for Isab.
