Two policemen are under investigation for covering up a fascist brawl that involved Rome’s Mayor’s son, Manfredi Alemanno.
According to Rome’s Public Prosecutors the inquiry that had followed the event was obstructed and then buried under the sand by the Police, thanks to the withholding of evidence and false statements made by policemen Roberto Macellaro (who in his free time volunteers to be the Mayor’s personal chauffeur) and Pietro Ronca, a local Chief Inspector in Rome.
Federico Aldrovandi was only 18 years old when he died of police brutality in 2005. Unlike the majority of such cases, Federico's murder found justice as the four responsible agents were found guilty of excessive force leading to death earlier this year. On March 27, a group policemen members of the minority union COISP intimidated Federico's mother, Patrizia Moretti, by holding a protest sit-in right in front of her workplace.
The Italian minority police union COISP (Coordinamento per l’Indipendenza Sindacale delle Forze di Polizia) staged a sit-in in solidarity with the four agents found guilty of excessive force leading to the death of Federico Aldrovandi, an 18 year-old young man from Ferrara who was murdered on 25 September 2005, when he was returning home after a night out with friends.
