Name-calling an offence, says Italy's top court
Calling a colleague 'liar' is a type of abuse03 September, 19:00
In a case involving municipal police officers in the Abruzzo coastal city of Chieti, one called another a liar in front of several colleagues, the Court of Cassation said.
And that constitutes abuse, it ruled, upholding lower court decisions.
The case involved a police captain who called a colleague a liar in front of a group of police officers in an argument over workloads.
