Eitan’s grandmother – Etty Peleg, former wife of Shmuel Peleg – is also under investigation for the kidnapping of the six-year-old child, the only survivor of the tragedy of the Stresa -Mottarone cable car. The Prosecutor’s Office of Pavia has already opened an investigation for kidnapping of the maternal grandfather, Shmuel Peleg, accused of having stolen the child from his aunt, Aya Biran Nirko. The latter had been entrusted following the death of his parents. Peleg, according to Israeli TV reconstructions Can, he left Pavia with his nephew on the morning of 12 September. “We are ascertaining what happened and then intervening,” said Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio. The aunt presented to the Tel Aviv family court an instance to bring the baby back in Italy, based on the Hague Convention. This was reported by the Israeli Channel 13.
The role of the woman in the affair is to verify. According to news agencies, she may have been with her ex-husband at least in the days before the alleged kidnapping: it is hypothesized that she helped him bring the child to Israel, where Eitan arrived on a private flight from Lugano. According to other rumors, however, the woman returned before the day of the alleged kidnapping. Therefore, the investigations to clarify the case continue. in the meantime Or Nirko, the child’s paternal uncle, husband of the aunt (and legal guardian) in an interview with N12, accused the Peleg family claiming that “They hold Eitan as Israeli soldiers are kept in Hamas prisons.” The man then rejected the idea that there is “a legal battle. Instead, there is a serious criminal offense according to the Hague Convention, namely a kidnapping. The Israeli legal authorities must know that Eitan has been kidnapped ”. Nirko then said that he and his wife Aya “were not surprised” by the development of the affair. “We were afraid it would happen. Despite our warnings, the Tribunal (in Italy, ed) allowed the Peleg family to continue their visits and this is what happened. The moment the opportunity presented itself, they kidnapped the child ”. For Nirko “Shmuel Peleg did not act alone but he had great help otherwise he would not have been able to organize such an operation. We have no evidence but there is a police investigation ”. Nirko then specified that “Eitan grew up all his life in Italy. He has never lived in Israel and has no friends there ”. For Or Nirko, paternal uncle of little Eitan victim of an alleged kidnapping, he needs one “Political solution” which could resolve the situation “much more quickly than the judicial one”. The man spoke to reporters outside his home where he lives with his wife. According to legal sources close to the child’s maternal family, Eitan “is fine”. The lawyer Sara Carsaniga, one of the family’s lawyers, stressed that in the context of the custody procedure one should “ask Eitan where he wants to live” by “listening to and verifying the real conditions of the child” with “technical advice from the office and therefore in contradiction between the parties ”, which instead was“ rejected ”.
