(ANSA) – BOLOGNA, 28 SEPTEMBER – “An abnormally long postponement that smacks of punishment”. So to ANSA Riccardo Noury, spokesman for Amnesty International in Italy, on the new postponement of the trial for Patrick George Zaki. “The judge – explains Noury - could have accepted the defense’s request for a postponement as he did, but he could order a postponement in one or two weeks. Among other things, this date of the next hearing, December 7, is bitterly symbolic because it will mark the twenty-second month of Patrick’s arbitrary and illegal detention and therefore continued suffering. “
“We have time ahead – he continues – to do something important, effective in relations between Italy and Egypt. The request we make is that Italian diplomacy uses this time in the best possible way”. (HANDLE).
