Italy: Updates about the situation of Divine
On July 19th, 2019, at the end of the hearing at the CPR [prison for migrants and people without documents] of Bari, the judge didn’t validate the request for detention at the Bari lager, the reasons for the detention were not deemed sufficient. Once left the worst migrant prison in Italy, the procedure following the suspension of the expulsion issued by the European Court of Human Rights went ahead, the Ministry of the Interior handed over the memoirs to justify the expulsion and the defense of Divine by August 19th will deliver its motivations to Strasbourg.
The line that the ministry continues to pursue is to describe the anarchist comrade as a socially dangerous person, a terrorist who must be expelled, despite the fact that he has never been sentenced of these crimes. Once again the functioning of the law is revealed: the accusation created by the grudges of the executive counts more than the judgments of the judges, it in itself describes some subjects as dangerous criminals going to compromise their whole life. From August 19th onwards, when Strasbourg has received all the necessary papers, the Court will most likely express itself in the following days and if the outcome is negative, there is the possibility that Divine will be repatriated instantly, since any appeal isn’t secure which has the request for suspension of the expulsion.
Those who fight are attacked by the State and the courts, but when it comes to people who weren’t born in this country, of course, the margins are much wider, and this is how an already exceptional criminal law dedicated to the internal enemy becomes even more exceptional when it becomes immigration law. Even those who have lived in Italy for twenty years must deal with the policies of a State that wants to be inhospitable and aggressive against the figure of the immigrant, as long as it isn’t rich, of course.
SOLIDARITY TO DIVIVE THAT, DETERMINED, CONTINUES TO FIGHT WITH THE HEAD HIGH! WE WILL ALWAYS BE AT HIS SIDE! WITHOUT FEAR OF REPRESSION, AT THE SIDE OF WHO FIGHTS![Text taken and translated from hurriya.noblogs.org].
