“Bring us to Landini’s or we’ll go get it”. A real threat was that of Giuliano Castellino, leader of Forza Nuova, against some police officers during those hot hours of urban warfare last Saturday in Rome, which culminated precisely with the assault on the CGIL. A disturbing detail that emerges from the request for validation of the 9-page arrest made by the Rome prosecutor.
“Despite the mediation attempts made by the police with the three people who had placed themselves at the head of the march, Luigi Aronica, Roberto Fiore and Castellino himself, the demonstrators continued their march by opposing violent resistance against the operators who had activated a lightening charge ”, the prosecutors write. Other details also emerge from the validation request, such as the use of sticks and iron bars. Tomorrow, Thursday 13 October, the validation hearing for Castellino, Fiore and the others arrested. The disputed crimes for all are violence and aggravated resistance to public officials, seditious rallies and unauthorized demonstrations.
The magistrates then add that “when he arrived at the headquarters of the CGIL, Castellino turned to a police officer placed to protect the headquarters, telling him: ‘let us pass, we must enter’. Despite the agents’ attempts to make the group desist, Castellino addressed the crowd, urging them to head towards the union headquarters with unequivocal gestures. In order to achieve this goal, the demonstrators carried out acts of violence and aggression against police officers ”.
Furthermore, the prosecutors of Rome, in the request for validation of the 9-page arrest against the six people involved in the clashes on Saturday – including Roberto Fiore, leader of Forza Nuova, and Giuliano Castellino, Roman leader of the neo-fascist movement – clearly speak of ” urban warfare “. “The active presence of those arrested who participated in all the various phases of the serious events that occurred in the afternoon and evening of 9 October and which substantially constituted a sort of ‘urban guerrilla’ is ascertained by the police.”
“The objective of the demonstrators – write the prosecutors of Rome – and in particular of those who have assumed a decisive role in violent initiatives was certainly not limited to a mere action of damage but to a much more consistent action aimed at the destruction of the headquarters of a constitutionally relevant institution and more generally to the disturbance of public order “. For the magistrates, the “boldness of the demonstrators is evident, if we consider that few of them had a distorted face, they were concerned about avoiding being filmed by the cameras, actually making their own videos, broadcast live on social networks. These were acts carried out by a very large number of people and continued for a considerable amount of time. The consequences of these actions are clearly vast and profound so as to determine not a mere damage but a real destruction that has involved multiple objects, including furniture, furnishings and IT material in an irreversible way “.
On the request for validation against Castellino, the prosecutors write: “Social alarm is raised by the fact that all the measures adopted over the years against Castellino in order to contain his delinquent thrust have not so far produced any results and have not succeeded to prevent him from continuing undaunted in the commission of the crime “.
“Over the years and starting from 1996 and therefore when he was less than 20 years old he began a delinquent path that has never suffered setbacks and which clearly demonstrates his total disregard for the rules of civil life”, write the Piazzale Clodio magistrates in the validation request. “Precisely with this in mind and in order to contain and supervise the criminal thrust of Castellino, the same has been repeatedly subjected to the measure of the Special Surveillance, a measure, constantly and repeatedly violated, even very recently”. Tomorrow the Roman leader of Forza Nuova, together with the other 5 arrested, will be subjected to validation interrogation. “Although not burdened by preventive measures as in the case of Castellino, in the recent period Fiore, Aronica and Passara have also shown particular activism in participating, even with leading roles, in the protest initiatives against the measures adopted by the Government and the Parliament to protect the health and safety of people. Initiatives then resulted in acts of violence and the consequent commission of serious crimes “.
