Condemned for defaming Lega leader Matteo Salvini. Don Giorgio De Capitani, 81 years old, home in Dolzago, where he still celebrates religious services, former pastor of Monte a Rovagnate, in the Brianza area of Lecco, will have to pay a fine of 7,500 euros, in addition to the payment of court costs. The judge of the court of Lecco Nora Lisa Passoni has also ordered that the priest pay Salvini 7 thousand euros as compensation.
The religious was found guilty of insults addressed to the leader of the Carroccio in four posts published on his blog between March and October 2015. A defamatory activity repeated over time. Political dissent is a value in itself that must be protected in our democracy, but criticism must take place in the ways and terms provided for by the law, without offenses, stressed the public prosecutor Paolo Del Grosso. The priest, among other things, had come to say in a radio broadcast that there was the right to kill Salvini.
The lawyer of the League leader is satisfied with the sentence Chiara Eccher, at the end of the hearing that on Monday saw the deposition of Luca Morisi, responsible for the communication of Matteo Salvini. The priest's lawyers, Marco Rigamonti and Emiliano Tamburini, had requested the acquittal. The Italian obtuse law. I published a comment on the role and activity of the politician, not his person. I did no damage to Salvini, the comment by Don Giorgio.
