DIY justice with legitimate defence bill

Stop and think, risk of legitimising murder - Minisci

(ANSA) - Rome, September 18 - The head of magistrates union ANM, Francesco Minisci, told the Senate justice committee Tuesday that the government's bill boosting legitimate self-defence could lead to "DIY justice".
    "There's a risk of legitimising murder...of creating a do-it-yourself justice," he said.
    "It would be opportune to stop and reflect," Minisci said, reiterating that the current law is a good one.
    "There's no need for further legislative intervention," said the ANM chief.
    The bill would introduce rules similar to the US stand your ground laws where virtually all forms of self-defence on one's property are deemed legitimate.
