Northern League says immigrant should be honoured
College graduate deserves Turin city seal, says Northern League09 October, 18:43
Rachid Khadiri Abdelmoula, who studied engineering at Turin's Polytechnic institute, should be awarded the city's seal as a symbol for "integration, commitment and desire for redemption," said the League.
The move demonstrates that critics who call the League anti-immigrant are incorrect, a spokesman for the political party added.
Abdelmoula arrived in Italy 12 years ago, according to reports in La Repubblica daily newspaper.
