The request of the prosecutor of Reggio Emilia was simple: that facebook close two pages containing Islamist threats to a journalist.
Too bad that the social network has responded no to the judge, without giving too much explanation.
The crimes – wrote La Stampa – were on “pages Muslims of Italy ” and “Italian Islam” which wrote aggravated threats and defamation against Benedetta Salsi, a journalist for Resto del Carlino. He told the newspaper the story of Luke Aleotti, under investigation for terrorism.
“It’s protection of freedom of expression of my personal dignity”, he wrote on facebook. The journalist was victim of threats, accused of Islamophobia and slandered, with personal details published on facebook, next to “sexist allusions and vulgarity.”
Digos has opened a file on the facts, but Facebook responded spades to the judiciary. “We need to perform actions that can not be liquidated by Facebook managers with a ‘no, I do not adhere’,” says the prosecutor in Reggio Emilia. But for now it is a stalemate.
