Italy’s widely popular new Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini, has blamed an attempted robbery and assault of a Sicilian police commissioner on the disastrous EU mass Muslim migration policies, claiming his country ‘is insane’ for ever having participated in it. Nuccio Garozzo (photo below) woke to find two Muslim migrants having broken into his home in Catania, Sicily, and was reportedly attacked with a razor blade when he took on the would-be burglars.
Daily Mail (h/t Marvin W) Local media reports that the two fled the scene, but that Mr Garozzo was able to apprehend one of them, who was later identified as an 18-year-old Gambian Muslim migrant.
The noise woke Mr Garozzo, and the would-be robbers slashed him with a razor-blade, before jumping from a first-floor balcony to escape. One of them managed to flee, while the other (photo below) suffered serious injuries from the jump and was apprehended in the street by Mr Garozzo.
It was reported that the arrested 18-year-old had arrived in Italy in December 2016 and had been given asylum on ‘humanitarian grounds’ due to him being underage at the time and ‘the presence of a serious genetic disease’, according to Catania Today. Newspapers reported that the teenager had a criminal record and had been reported for violence and drug dealing in 2017.
Salvini demanded that the arrested burglar should be expelled from Italy ‘immediately’, promising that with his proposed ‘Safety Decree’ any asylum seeker who commits a crime would be ‘kicked out of our country automatically, without exception.’ He added that ‘who brings war into our homes are not welcome.’
Mr Garozzo was taken to hospital and is reportedly set to make a full recovery following 80 stitches to his wounds.
The incident took place in Catania, a port city on the island of Sicily which recently saw a political standoff between the government and the EU after Italy refused to let a ship of nearly 140 African Muslim migrants disembark. Below is a video of Salvini talking about it.
Salvini is a real rock star in Italy now.
