Ilaria Salis, Italy under house arrest.  Meloni hears Orban.  Lollobrigida: “I didn’t see” – Europe

The conditions of detention of Ilaria Salis, the 39-year-old Italian in prison in Budapest accused of attacking two right-wing extremists, shown at trial in chains, become a case.

“Our law prohibits the display of the prisoner with handcuffs and in conditions of humiliation, while this did not happen in Hungary. I think it is right to intervene on this.” Thus the President of the Senate, Ignazio La Russa, speaking about the detention in Hungary of Ilaria Salis, guest of ‘Avanti Popolo’ broadcast on Rai3. And he reiterated the need “not to humiliate the prisoner, to have respect for the dignity of the person even when they are detained for serious crimes”.

In view of the extraordinary EU Council on February 1st, according to what we learn, Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni had a telephone conversation with Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban. The Prime Minister also, in full respect of the independence and autonomy of the Hungarian judiciary, brought Prime Minister Orban’s attention to the case of our compatriot Ilaria Salis, following the diplomatic initiatives already launched starting from 22 January Vice-President of the Council and Minister of Foreign Affairs Antonio Tajani with his Hungarian counterpart Peter Szijjarto.

The Farnesina is asking Hungary for alternative measures to prison detention. The Hungarian Penitentiary Service speaks of “falsehoods” about detention conditions. Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani reports that he only learned yesterday about the hand and foot handcuffs and specifies: “Orban has nothing to do with it. It’s not that the government decides the trial. The judiciary is independent.” Minister Lollobrigida claims not to have seen the photos of the handcuffed woman: “I’m going to see them. I don’t comment on things I haven’t seen.” All the oppositions asked for information from Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.

“On February 2nd I will see Ilaria Salis’ father, I couldn’t see him before because he was leaving for Hungary”, the president of the Senate said in the Chamber, Ignazio La Russa. “The dignity of prisoners”, said La Russa, is a problem that “must be close to the hearts of everyone in Hungary but also in every other part of the world, including Italy where I have news of a not very dissimilar situation, at least for the men” and not for women “with a leash but not handcuffs on their feet”. That of Ilaria Salis “seems to me to be an excessive accusation”, she added. “I hope that she can be acquitted or the accusation dismissed”.

The Hungarian Penitentiary Service: “False about Salis’ conditions”. “The accusations made by the Italian and Hungarian media” on the conditions of Ilaria Salis’ detention “are false and the prison organization forcefully rejects them”, we read in a note from the Hungarian state penitentiary service which brands the fact as “sad and immoral that these slanders are reported by the press without consulting the other party.” The note cites the accusations of Carmen Giorgio, Salis’ former cellmate, who spoke of beds full of bedbugs, mice, mistreatment and the use of chains by the Budapest prison service.

“A wave is growing to try to discredit my daughter’s actions.” Roberto Salis, Ilaria’s father, speaks thus to Repubblica’s ‘Metropolis’ podcast. “Photos are circulating of a crime committed in Hungary for which my daughter is not accused” he added, underlining that now “the most important thing of all is to identify what the plan is to get her under house arrest in Italy and to remove her from a situation unsustainable to then carry out the process in humane conditions”. “I believe that the Italian Embassy participated in at least four hearings in which my daughter was brought before the judge in these conditions. Until October 12, when my daughter wrote a letter, we had no evidence of the treatment that our daughter was undergoing. daughter. The only ones who knew and didn’t say anything are the people from the Italian Embassy in Hungary”, said Roberto Salis.
