Genoa riot police get 5 years

category international | summit mobilisations | other press author Wednesday May 19, 2010 16:58author by non-voterauthor email thackeraddy at gmail dot com Report this post to the editors

Some of Italy's most senior police officers have been given jail sentences of up to five years for what the prosecutors called a "terrible" attack on demonstrators at the 2001 G8 meeting in Genoa and an attempted cover-up. It isn’t expected that any of the police will serve sentences because delays in bringing the prosecutions mean the offences are “ timed-out “ under statutes of limitations . But several of the most senior defendants were also given five-year disqualifications from public office . Victims of the police expressed delight at the sentences.
