Repression update from the AS2 unit of the prison of Ferrara (Italy)

In the proceedings based on article 280 against Nicola and Alfredo following Roberto Adinolfi’s wounding, the court of Genoa (in the person of Judge Baldini taking over from Judge Giacalone over the summer) has ordered letters censorship over a period of six months towards Sergio and Stefano, locked up in Ferrara following Operation Ardire.

Reading the decree of the judge, it seems that the pretext for this measure is due to the risk that Sergio and Stefano’s letters could compromise the censorship already imposed on Nicola and Alfredo in the last months, ‘as the same correspondence could contain references to imminent criminal actions’. In support of this statement mention is made of the internet circulation of texts in memory of Mauricio Morales written by Sergio, Nicola and Alfredo, by which ‘they have renewed their adhesion to the subversive purposes of the anarchist fringes.’

Beyond these nineteenth century terminologies, the real reasons are exemplary of the tricks that the judiciary and the prison administration are adopting today against those who have decided not to lower their heads.

We found out today that Nicola is under investigation for ‘attempted incitement to crime’ (Art. 56 and 414) for the content of a letter (never delivered because it was retained by censorship – a fact to which reference was made in previous updates) on anti-prison struggle which allegedly led to actions such as the ‘attack on the car of the director of Korydallos prison in Athens’. The prosecutors in Genoa said that they will deposit the said letter at the hearing of Nicola and Alfredo on October 30, meanwhile the case is passed to the prosecutor of Bologna (territorial jurisdiction over Ferrara). Given the censorious aims of the prosecutor Franz, care should be taken to find and circulate as soon as possible the full script of the imprisoned comrade.

To write to the comrades:

Sergio Maria Stefani
Stefano Fosco
Nicola Gai
Alfredo Cospito

Casa Circondariale Ferrara
Via Arginone 327
