The relatives of Alessandro Carolè plan to claim the Italian government has failed to follow a European Union directive requiring Italy to establish a special fund for victims of violence, said lawyer Anna Cifuni, who represents the victim's family.
Mada 'Adam' Kabobo, an undocumented immigrant, killed three men and injured several others in an hour-long string of apparently random attacks in Milan early on May 11, 2013 before being stopped by police. Kabobo reportedly suffered from mental problems and told police: "I never sleep". He also reported hearing voices. A forensic psychiatrist told a court in Milan last month that the 21-year-old migrant was not mentally fit to be in prison and that he should be held in a psychiatric hospital pending his trial.
