Salis house arrest request OKd

Hungarian court upholds plea from Italian anti-fascist

ROME, 15 May 2024, 18:59

ANSA English Desk



A request for Ilaria Salis to be moved from prison to house arrest in Budapest, lawyers for the 39-year-old Monza elementary teacher and antifascist on trial there for attacking two neoNazis on their Day of Honour in February last year said Wednesday.
    Salis, who had been candidated in the European elections for the Green-Left Alliance (AVS) in a bid to get the long-sought house arrest, saw her appeal upheld by a second-instance Hungarian court on Wednesday.
    Hungary's prison service said Tuesday Salis can vote in the June 8-9 European elections she is standing in for the AVS, rejecting her father Roberto's claims are "baseless".
    Salis is accused of attempted murder for allegedly being part of a German-led hammer gang that allegedly targeted neo-Nazis on their Day of Honour commemorating an SS regiment's "heroic" resistance against the Red Army in February 2023.
    The AVS candidacy was a bid to get Salis released, at least to the house arrest she has been denied, with her hopeful EP immunity from prosecution.
    The Hungarian prosecutor has asked for a prison term of 11 years but Salis's father says she risks as long as 24 years in jail on charges of attempted murder.
    The alleged victims of her alleged attack did not reportedly complain to police.
    Salis has been led into court on several occasions on a chain with her hands and ankles cuffed, sparking shock in Italy, although Budapest says it is standard procedure for its prisoners.

Italian ministers have taken a softly softly approach to the case, stressing the independence of the Hungarian judiciary in a country with EU-asserted rule of law issues.
