Prosecutors in Milan have asked for the three men to be tried on alleged counts of body harm and false declarations amongst other things.
The investigation that triggered the request for the policemen to go on trial were triggered by a report made by the young man, who told authorities he had been chased, beaten up, and handcuffed. According to his version of the events that allegedly took place between March 26 and 27 in 2011, which has also been confirmed by some of his friends, said that one of the off-duty policemen was parking his car with a colleague when he crashed into his own, causing damage. When the policemen denied the event, the young man took his keys out and scratched the policeman’s car. An alleged car chase and beating ensued. The young man is currently under investigation for having damaged a third-party’s private property.
