Reggio, the review rejects the request. Francesco Putortì remains in prison


By John

The butcher from Reggio Calabria remains in prison Francesco Putortì, arrested after surprising two criminals, originally from Catania, who were stealing from his home in the hilly hamlet of Reggio south, Oliveto, stabbing them at the height of a scuffle.

One of the two thieves died from his injuries, the other was forced to be treated in hospital in Messina. Two others apparently ran away while they were waiting outside the house. The review court of Reggio Calabria rejected the request of the defenders, the lawyers Giulia Dieni and Maurizio Condipodero of the Court of Reggio Calabria, confirming the order of the investigating judge, Giovanna Sergi, who had ordered prison considering the danger of escape, the possibility of the contamination of evidence and the risk of repeating the crime. And above all the serious indications of guilt. The accusatory thesis of the Public Prosecutor Nunzio De Salvo was therefore also accepted by the reviewing judges. Now waiting to find out the Court's reasons for rejecting the release request.

The police and carabinieri investigations continue to shed light on the many obscure points of a terrible affair.
