Libero’s new complaint on the case of Chico Forti, the Italian in prison for 21 years in the US for a life sentence, also outrages Matteo Salvini. As Alessandro Dell’Orto writes in the issue on newsstands Sunday, June 6, the papers that should have brought the manager back to Italy have “disappeared”, on whose conviction for the murder of Dale Pike, on February 15, 1998 in Miami, still weighs heavily. today very strong doubts. A return triumphantly announced six months ago by the then Foreign Minister of the Conte 2 government, Luigi Di Maio, still today at the Farnesina. The American authorities then actually sent those documents, but nothing was known. Result: Forti is still in prison in the US, with no possibility of leaving, not even for health reasons.
“Many of us have been following for years, with passion and concern, the fate of Chico Forti – is the official note of Salvini, secretary of the League and former Minister of the Interior in the Conte 1 government -: he had long since been transferred from the United States to Italy , but the months go by and there doesn’t seem to be any news “.
“After reading some alarming press reports, which speak of bureaucratic problems that would have blocked everything – is Salvini’s appeal, which quotes Libero’s article -, I went back to writing to the family to put myself at their complete disposal as already happened in the past. The League is following the story and is available to lend a hand: everything must be done to bring Chico Forti back home “. “Relatives and friends have waited too long – concludes Salvini, addressing Di Maio directly -. We must do everything to bring him home”.
