The prosecutor of Reggio Emilia, Valentina Salvi, asked for six years against the psychotherapist Claudio Foti, one of the defendants in the trial born from the investigation into the alleged system of illicit custody of minors in Bibbiano in the Reggio Enza valley. The indictment lasted seven hours. The scientific director of the Piedmontese study center Hansel&Gretel must answer for the accusations of abuse of office, procedural fraud and very serious injuries (hypothesis of crime formulated for the alleged psychic alteration of a patient).
In the next hearing, space will be given to the defense’s replies with the word to the lawyers Giuseppe Rossodivita e Girolamo Andrea Coffari who defend Foti, who chose the process in abbreviated form. The sentences for Foti and for the other defendant who chose the alternative rite are scheduled for 11 November, Beatrice Benati, social worker of the Val d’Enza Union, for which the prosecutor had asked for a year and six months of sentence on charges of private violence and attempted private violence. They will be the first sentences of the trial if the plea bargain is excluded after one year and eight months (suspended sentence) of Cinzia Magnarelli, a social worker from the Union Val d’Enza, rea confessed and accused of false ideology and procedural fraud. For the other defendants, the judge for the preliminary hearing will decide whether to indict or acquitted.
