Sentence of the first instance trial against the anarchist comrade Giuseppe Bruna (Genoa, Italy, May 10, 2021)
On May 10th, the verdict of the first-degree trial that saw the anarchist comrade Giuseppe Bruna accused of having placed an incendiary device against a post office in Genoa on June 8th, 2016, was issued. The comrade received a sentence of five years in prison.
During the period in which the attack in question occurred Poste Italiane was attacked repeatedly because of its collaboration in the expulsion and deportation of migrants through the airline Mistral Air (controlled by Poste Italiane). Pre-trial detention in relation to this fact had come to Beppe on December 17th, 2019, following an investigation by the Special Operational Grouping (ROS) of the Carabinieri and public prosecutor Manotti of Genoa. The charges were based on the discovery of DNA traces that the cops attributed to the comrade. The device had not ignited and it could not have worked due to a malfunction.
Beppe has been in prison since May 21st, 2019, arrested in the context of “Prometeo” (Prometheus) repressive operation, an investigation conducted again by the ROS of the Carabinieri, which also involved the arrest of Natascia and another comrade, later released from prison in December of the same year. The accusation against them is of “attack with the purpose of terrorism”, as they are held responsible for sending three parcel bombs that arrived in June 2017 to prosecutors Rinaudo (public prosecutor in several trials against the antagonist movement and anarchists) and Sparagna (public prosecutor in the Scripta Manent trial) and to Santi Consolo, at the time director of the Department of Penitentiary Administration (DAP) in Rome.
The trial for the “Prometeo” operation against Natascia, Beppe and the comrade who was released from prison in December 2019, is currently underway also at the court of Genoa.
Revolutionary solidarity with the imprisoned anarchists!
