On Friday morning, June 2nd, the DIGOS [political police] notified the closure of investigations for crimes 270bis (subversive association) and 414 (criminal solicitation) against 7 anarchists, 4 of them are editors of Croce Nera Anarchica [Anarchist Black Cross] and the other 2 of RadioAzione and Anarhija websites, with “aggravating” for terrorist purposes. For 2 of them is added the article 280 (attack with terrorist purpose), regarding an explosive attack signed by FAI/FRI against the courthouse of Civitavecchia.
The notification was not combined with a search and those involved were not arrested.
It seems, from the documents, that these wave of charges, always made by the prosecutor Roberto Maria Sparagna, are an extension of operation Scripta Manent, for which will be held the preliminary hearing at Monday, June 5th.
Updates will follow.
