Supreme court wants migrate law change

Canzio says administrative punishment would be better

(ANSA) - Rome, January 28 - Giovanni Canzio, the first president of Italy's supreme Court of Cassation, on Thursday called for illegal immigration to be decriminalised. "The response on the criminal procedure ground (to the crime of illegal immigration) is that it is useless, ineffective and in some ways damaging," Canzio said at the inauguration of the 2016 judicial year. "Substituting the crime with an offense and administrative sanctions, including expulsion, would give concrete results".
