Italian prosecutor seeks trial of Matteo Salvini for defending Italy and Europe

Italy: Italian prosecutor seeks trial of Matteo Salvini for defending Italy and Europe.

Regardless of whether we agree with his recent decisions, the V4 Report wishes Salvini the best. This is an unjust and ridiculous political persecution…and could set a very dangerous precedent for others defending Europe.
Salvini: “I leave it to the judges to judge whether a minister who has defended his country under the respect of the law deserves 15 years in jail or if on the contrary jail deserves those who have endangered the lives of thousands of people.”

We don’t pretend to have any inside information but wonder if Salvini is getting heavy pressure from Lega officials to keep his distance from Orban and national conservatives. How this is related to his upcoming trial in Italy is unknown, but Lega officials may be may planning to embrace the establishment (EPP) if Salvini is unjustly convicted in this show trial.

Salvini could face 15 years in jail and a ban on holding office if he is found guilty, which would be a travesty of justice.

Judge Lorenzo Innaneli will decide whether there will be a trial on April 17.
