On February 14th, the notice of conclusion of the preliminary investigation for the repressive operation called Prometeo (“Prometheus”) that led to the arrest of Natascia, Robert and Beppe was served (for all previous updates you can see this link). After 20 days from the notification, the prosecutor will evaluate how to proceed and will set a preliminary hearing.
Yesterday’s news, however, that the request for house arrest as an alternative to custody in prison, submitted by Natascia’s lawyers, was unfortunately rejected. The lawyers will have until 28 February to challenge the rejection and appeal.

Italy: Updates about some anarchist prisoners (January 2020)
We briefly summarize the latest updates on the situation of some anarchist prisoners in Italy.
On November 29, 2019 a search took place in the cell of the Sardinian anarchist Davide Delogu, imprisoned in the Rossano Calabro prison. At the same time, he was notified of the opening of an investigation for “association with the purpose of terrorism or subversion of the democratic order” (art. 270bis of Italian criminal code). Subsequently, he was returned some previously seized manuscripts. A week later, the guards informed him that a telephone had been found in the sewers of the prison and that they intended to charge him with its possession; Davide refused to be x-rayed and undressed.
We remind you that a solidarity fund has been opened for Davide Delogu, the coordinates are: Owner: Laura Gargiulo. Iban: IT27E0306967684510327514549.
This is the address of the comrade: Davide Delogu, C. R. di Rossano Calabro, Contrada Ciminata snc, 87067 Corigliano-Rossano (Cs), Italy.
For the repressive operation “Prometeo” (arrests of May 21, 2019) Natascia and Beppe remains in the prisons of Piacenza and Pavia respectively. On December 2, 2019, Robert, accused in the same operation, was released from Bancali prison, in Sardinia, without any precautionary measures. The release came following the decision of the court of review after the cassation, in October, had annulled the order of pre-trial detention for lack of “serious indications of guilt”. The appeal in cassation had been requested for Robert and Beppe, but for the latter it was rejected. Recently, the public prosecutor in turn lodged an appeal in cassation opposing Robert’s release; the hearing has been set for February 4, 2020. The “Prometeo” investigation is still open. The censorship in the correspondence of Natascia has been removed. (more…)

Further arrest warrant for Giuseppe, anarchist imprisoned for the “Prometeo” operation (17/12/2019)
We learn that on the morning of Tuesday December 17th, 2019, Giuseppe, already in prison for the “Prometeo” operation (arrests of May 21st, for which Natascia is also imprisoned, while Robert was released), has received another mandate of arrest as part of an operation conducted by the ROS (“Special Operational Grouping”) of the Carabinieri under the direction of the Antiterrorism pool of the Turin Prosecutor’s Office. He is accused of attempting to destroy a postamat (ATM) in Genoa with an incendiary device, an action dating back to June 2016. This action was included in the list of facts that corroborated the accusations of the “Scintilla” operation (arrests of February 7th and eviction of the Asilo Occupato in Turin).

Italy: Prometeo Operation – References for benefits and updates
REPRESSIVE OPERATION ‘PROMETEO’
Natascia, Robert and Beppe were arrested on May 21st 2019. They were accused of sending three explosive packages in 2017 to the PM (public prosecutor) Sparagna and Rinaudo, and to Santi Consolo, who was the director of the DAP (Department for the Penitentiary Administration) of Rome. More information is available here.
UPDATES ABOUT NATASCIA, ROBERT AND BEPPE
Natascia has been imprisoned in the jail of L’Aquila, in the AS2 (high security) section, which is actually a 41-bis section. Anna, another comrade, is also imprisoned in this section. She was arrested in 2016 following a repressive operation called SCRIPTA MANENT. Silvia is still being held in the jail of Turin (Torino) where she was transferred in order to be present for minor trials. Natascia began a hunger strike while she was in the jail of Rebibbia (in Rome), in solidarity with Anna and Silvia who began a hunger strike to demand the closing of the AS2 section in L’Aquila. All the three of them ended the hunger strike on June 28th (Anna and Silvia maintained the hunger strike for one month). Right after the end of the hunger strike, after almost 6 weeks of detention, Natascia received her first visit in jail. On July 11th, the re-examination hearing was held, which Nat was only allowed to attend by video conference. (more…)
