According to the investigations of the Pavia prosecutor, the maternal grandfather – a past in the army and today a consultant for an electronics company – has hired a car to reach Lugano a private flight to take Eitan with him, also showing the passport of the grandson. “We will strive – write the lawyers – for the recognition of the rights of the maternal family, after which we trust that Shmuel will return to have confidence in Italian institutions and we will commit ourselves to this “. “We are tired of unjustified attacks and we want to put order in a situation where does not exist no mistreating grandfather: is a story of 20 years ago and the same grandmother has reduced the incident “, then declared a LaPresse the lawyer Sara Carsaniga, one of Shmuel Peleg’s lawyers. On Sunday the paternal aunt had in fact recalled that Peleg “was condemned in Israel for mistreatment against his ex-wife ”, Eitan’s maternal grandmother,“ in three degrees of judgment ”. The lawyer now replies that “there is only one wonderful grandfather and one wonderful family who have been denied ‘significant relationships’, as requested by the judge ”. The lawyer then specified that her client “is a splendid person, I don’t know what jumped into his mind. Now we await the necessary investigations of the judiciary “.
The investigation – In the investigation, coordinated by the deputy prosecutor Mario Venditti, it also digs on alleged complicity of other people in the raid that led to the alleged kidnapping. The paternal uncle Or Nirko, husband of Aya Biran, in an interview on Israeli radio 103 Fm the maternal grandmother accuses: “She was in Italy and it’s part of the rapture. She claims she flew back to Israel the day before, this apparently in order not to be exposed to the accusation of complicity ”, added Or Nirko. “I will abandon the legal fight only after the kidnappers – he continued – will be finished in prison. The only thing that interests us is the good of the child ”. Or Nirko – who spoke on the radio immediately after Etty Peleg, interviewed by the same broadcaster – then added that “do not believe that Eitan comes to understand that he has been kidnapped. I imagine the maternal family persuaded him that he is back in one vacation and that he does not know of the crime committed against him. You can imagine yourself how we feel“, He concluded.
The version of the family in Israel – “There was no kidnapping, the baby he wanted to come back in Israel for some time, ”he said Ety Peleg, Eitan’s maternal grandmother, interviewed by the same radio. The family in Israel continues to reiterate this version of events. “Its conditions are worst and finally – he denounced this morning, confirming that the child is being treated at theSheba hospital in Tel Aviv – after 4 months the doctors will see what happened to the baby. For 4 months he hasn’t seen any doctor apart from his aunt in Italy who is a doctor who takes care of prisoners. For 4 months they stopped me and my husband Shmuel to consult with doctors and psychologists “. “Now – continued Ety Peleg – he is undergoing very thorough medical consultations at the Sheba, including one psychological care which had to be done for some time and has not been done ”. “Eitan is our world and we – added the grandmother – want to be safe that he is fine. It’s the only thing that interests us ”. Ety Peleg then said that Eitan “non had ties with Aya’s family ”, the paternal aunt residing in Italy. “Now – he concluded – it’s me a take care of him“.
