Via & Translated by act for freedom now!
Yesterday, 25th February 2022, police notified three custodial measures to as many comrades – from the documents we learn that the recipients would be 4 in total. They concern one custodial measure in prison, one house arrest and two compulsory residence orders in municipalities outside Trentino (one in the Trevigiano area and the other in Trieste).
The accusations refer to events different to one another and also distant in time. The only common thread seems to be the struggle against prison. After the revolts that took place in Italian jails in response to the management of the epidemic, attention has become more stringent concerning those who mobilize outside the walls on this obviously explosive front (a local example is proceedings opened in Trento for incitement to commit crime following gatherings outside the prison of Spini di Gardolo in 2021). In the orders notified yesterday, the prosecutors (Raimondi, Ognibene, Profiti, the same as in operation Renata) talk about the intent “to impose their anti-prison ideology”.
The accusations are three:
According to prosecutors, Juan allegedly placed a device near the Tribunal of Surveillance in Trento in 2014 (article 280 bis). Juan is currently being held in the prison of Terni and is facing a trial for ‘terrorist attack’ and ‘massacre’, following devices placed near the premises of the Northern League of Treviso in 2018.
Two other comrades are accused of having aided and abetted Juan’s hiding between 2017 and 2018 (procured non-observance of an accusation, article 390), by providing him with fake identity documents and a rented place.
Another comrade is accused of attempted extorsion with the aggravating circumstance of purposes of terrorism because along with others he allegedly tried to convince the editor of Radio Ottanta to read live a communique in solidarity with the revolts and [against] the massacres which occurred in Italian jails in March 2020.
There is no charge of subversive association.
This is what the documents say in short. What we say is that the spirit of freedom will never be sedated by any police manoeuvre. That we’ll continue to fight against prison. That we want our comrades back with us. That we won’t deprive them of our closeness.
Solidarity with Juan, Massimo, Agnese and Stecco.
