Italians outraged by strange verdict: Antonio Di Pietro speaks to us

A Milan judge dropped terrorism charges against five Islamic militants. Many, many Italians were angry at her.

I found Antonio Di Pietro at the airport. He was a judge and now he is a politician. I asked him to tell what he thinks of all this.

He said that the judge was correct but wrong.

She interpreted the law in a way that is quite possible. But the law, that is made in a way that requests an interpretation, could also be used to declare the militants guilty. And that in an historic moment like the present, she should have decided differently.

But he is also very concerned at what the government is doing. Prosecuting the Milan judge is unlawful. The trial will go into appeal and that's the right way to proceed. A political intervention is a mistake and it is against the law.
