The pretext had been the request of one cigarette, to unleash a brutal aggression against a boy “guilty” of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, at theArch of Peace. Now the six adult members of the gang will end up before the judge for the preliminary hearing in Milan Daniela Cardamone with the accusation contested by the Milan Public Prosecutor’s Office of “injuries aggravated by abject and futile reasons, by the presence of several people gathered and by the participation of minors “. Two were also part of the group under 18: the Juvenile Court proceeds against them. Milan prosecutor Francesca Crupi closed the preliminary investigation into the episode, asking the judge to indict the young accused. During the hearing, scheduled for December 1, they will be able to ask to be tried with an abbreviated procedure, aiming for a reduction of one third of the sentence. The group raid dates back to the night between 25 and 26 July 2020, one of the umpteenth violent nights in the nightlife areas. Assault cost a nineteen year old student several days coma at Fatebenefratelli and a 16-day hospitalization for serious injuries to the head. The boy was hit in the back with a right hook and fell to the ground, hitting his head and remaining motionless on the ground. After an investigation that thoroughly probed cameras, cell phones and social networks, the agents of the fifth section of the Mobile managed to identify most of the members of the “herd” and to attribute to each of them a defined role in the chaos. The one who materially punched the punch, ME, nineteen year old born in Italy of North African parents and residing in a small town in Brianza, ended up under house arrest; for 5 other accomplices, little more than 18 years of age, at the time the obligation to stay in the municipalities of residence was ordered (from Piacenza to Varesotto, up to the province of Monza).
The boys, now, they risk one condemnation heavy for an attack that, in the order of pre-trial detention, was described with these words by the investigating judge Ilaria De Magistris: “The mobile squad has not found any motive that could have justified such group violence, if not the fine interest to himself to disturb a group of young people, who would have continued their evening in a peaceful way, to affirm (originally under the pretext of asking for a cigarette) a personal best “. The lawyer Sandro Cannalire, defender of one of the accused, will aim to demonstrate “his extraneousness to the facts, since he was far from the place of the attack”.
