Far Left Open Borders Senators voted to indict Matteo Salvini, the wildly popular leader of the right-wing, anti-Muslim immigration League Party today.
EuroNews The case dates back to an incident last July when 131 Muslim illegal migrant wannabes from Africa were prevented from disembarking in an Italian port for almost a week. At the time, Salvini was pushing for (and eventually achieved) the closure of all ports to illegal Muslim migrants.
Salvini, commenting on Twitter ahead of today’s vote, said: “If I’ll stand trial, I’ll explain to the judges that I had a duty to defend the Italian citizens, and I will serenely walk into the hearing room representing millions of Italians – for what I did was what they wanted: checking those who come into Italy and those who leave, as I would do in my home.
When you do nothing wrong, then there is nothing you should be afraid of.“
The vote had been expected to indict Salvini as his League party no longer has a majority there.
Whatever the outcome of Wednesday’s session, though, Salvini will have to face another indictment vote on similar allegations. On February 27, a Senate committee will rule on whether to charge him with “detaining” 107 migrants on an NGO boat in Sicily, between 14 and 20 August 2019.
