The operation was co-ordinated by the deputy prosecutor Giancarlo Capaldo of the anti-terrorism unit and the general commander of Mario Parente Ros, and considered the anarchists authors of a number of various kinds of damages that occurred in the province of Rome : Thirteen acts of sabotage committed against some banks, a fur shop, and branch offices of ENI and ENEL (energy companies) and the Roncigliano landfill.
The authorities impose upon them the charges of association for purposes of terrorism or subversion of the democratic order, as well as those of fire and theft, aggravated by the circumstances of competition, disfigurement and contamination of other people’s property.
From the day of their arrest, Gianluca and Adriano were inside the prison in solitary confinement : First in Alexandria and second in Ferrara, in those special sections where male and female inmates reside, whose first fault attributed to them is the ideas that they carry.
The preliminary hearing, which was held last March 26th, Gianluca and Adriano have been indicted; At the same time and place, the judge has assumed the responsibility to make the defendants participate in hearings by video-conference : the decision was motivated by a circular letter of the Department of Penitentiary Administration which provides for the use of this tool as a measure of restraint for the “most dangerous” detainees. A measure adopted following the escape of Mafia Boss Domenico Cutri which occurred during a court transfer.
In reality, the implementation of court processes for video conferencing increases the condition of isolation, demonizing and dehumanizing even more prisoners to whom the authorities are beginning to apply it.
On May 26, at the Court of Assizes in Rome there will be held the first hearing on summary judgment and the prosecutor will present the request for sentencing.
We express our solidarity with the strength and closeness to Gianluca and Adriano, aware that the story that concerns them is part of all the people who put themselves in the game, to express and practice their ideas of freedom and equality, without distinction, respect for diversity of all life.
Also that day Gianluca and Adriano will not be alone.
