“We are nominating her for the European elections”, the announcement after the denial –

“I deny it”, Angelo Bonelli said this morning to L’aria che tira about Ilaria Salis’ candidacy on the red-green list. A few hours after the official announcement: “The Green and Left Alliance in agreement with Roberto Salis has decided to nominate his daughter Ilaria, detained in Hungary, in conditions that seriously violate people’s rights, on its lists in the next European elections”, they say Nicola Fratoianni and himself in a joint note. Elly Schlein had first set her sights on the 39-year-old teacher, accused of having participated in the beating of some neo-Nazis, but in the end she will be on the list not with the Pd but with Avs.

On the left they are also arguing over Ilaria Salis: official candidacy, who she will go with

“In these hours the national leadership groups are discussing the modalities of this choice which aims to protect the rights and dignity of a European citizen, also from the inertia of the Italian authorities to obtain a rapid release from prison in favor of house arrest denied with the last decision by the Hungarian judges. The idea is that around the candidacy of Ilaria Salis a great and generous battle can be generated so that the European Union defends the principles of the Rule of Law and reaffirms the inviolability of fundamental human rights throughout its territory. and in each of the member states”, declare Fratoianni and Bonelli. “Ours – they explain – is a gesture that can serve to denounce uncivilized methods of detention, especially towards those who are still awaiting trial. In this way Green Europe and the Italian Left intend to bring legislative initiatives to the future European Parliament for the protection of rights of people involved in criminal proceedings in all countries of the Union. A press conference will be convened in the next few days.” A move which for many observers, however, is merely electoral with Avs terrified of not exceeding the 4 percent bar in the European elections.

Schlein scolds his men: Don't talk about it anymore, nervous breakdown over the M5s-left assault

Shortly before, in a press point at the end of the EU summit, Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni was asked for a comment on what was still only a hypothesis. Also in light of the executive’s commitment to the matter. “As far as Ilaria Salis is concerned, I don’t know if she will run”, “I don’t think anything will change with respect to the work that the Government is doing and which I think it must guarantee”; said the Prime Minister. “I have already said that the politicization of this matter, in my opinion, I don’t know how much it helps the resolution of the case itself but then obviously everyone makes the choices they want to make, and particularly those that concern Ilaria Salis in themselves I don’t allow myself to judge them, they will be choices that he will have evaluated. And absolutely nothing changes”, added Meloni.
