The 39-year-old Lombard has been imprisoned in Budapest for a year accused of attacking far-right militants.
Ilaria Salis will submit a request to be placed under house arrest in Hungary. she made it known Roberto Salis, father of the 39-year-old Lombard who has been detained in Budapest for a year accused of having attacked far-right militants. «Ilaria has changed her mind – stated Roberto Salis – since this request to request house arrest in Hungary came from different places. Now We need to find a house in Budapest and then we will submit the application.».
The 39-year-old man’s defense considers that the timing of the release request is “mature”, although the orientation has changed. The request aims to obtain the attenuated precautionary measure no longer in Italy but in Hungary., also based on the considerations of the Hungarian lawyer assisting the woman, Gyorgy Magyarto. At the moment it seems that it is necessary to move to house arrest. the most concrete possibility of ending Salis’ detentionthe prelude to a return to Italy, even if he still had to serve some sentence in Budapest.
Salis’s father also commented on the letter from the Hungarian ambassador in Rome, Adam Kovacs, about the case of his daughter Ilaria: “I hope that the Italian institutions will reiterate to the Hungarian government that in In our country the press is free. and foreign interference in the work of Italian journalists is not welcome,” he said.
In the letter, the ambassador states that a “significant” part of the Italian press gave the Salis case “a particularly distorted and disproportionate representation especially in the evaluation of the Hungarian judicial system.”
This distorted version, according to the diplomat, “raises the doubt that Editorial comments are driven exclusively by political considerations.in addition to being ideological, intended to harm Italian-Hungarian relations.” A series of considerations follow in which it is recalled that the accusations made against Ilaria Salis “regardless of whether or not the accused was unrelated to these facts, on which he will decide the Court”, are from “very serious crimeswhose sole objective is to undermine the founding principles of our democracy that excludes the use of violence as an instrument of political confrontation.” The letter concludes with the ambassador’s conviction that “the historical friendship that exists between our countries will continue to be solid because it has millennial foundations”.
