Forza Nuova Piemonte replies to the accusations and the news circulated in the last weeks, in particular to an involvement of the movement of Roberto Fiore in the alleged trafficking of arms from Ukraine to Italy.
According to Forza Nuova: “The leaders and militants of Forza Nuova Piemonte are strongly disgusted by the total lack of professional ethics of some journalists (or alleged ones) who in these days are trying to feed the absurd plot of the” Forza Nuova missiles “».
«Already on Monday morning, a few hours after the arrests, the Turin Police Headquarters had organized a press conference in which it was stated that the searches concern a hangar in the province of Pavia and a private house in the province of Varese, therefore no party headquarters or home in Piedmont, the only demonstrable relationship between Forza Nuova and the arrestee refers to a candidacy in 2001 (18 years ago) and the operations refer to a survey begun in 2018, without any connection with the searches in Turin from previous weeks ».
They continue from Forza Nuova: ” Always Monday, after a rigorous internal verification, the Forza Nuova Lombardia Coordinator published a press release to confirm the total alienation of the movement from the matter: none of the characters involved appears to be militant or member of the movement. Despite the almost “live” availability of these fundamental details, numerous newspapers and news sites have published articles full of inaccuracies and very personal interpretations: millions of Italians have therefore formed their opinion on the matter based on real fake news “.
According to the Piedmontese forced laborers, some online newspapers have even claimed that the missile was found in the offices and homes of far-right exponents, indicating Turin as the place of discovery, which does not actually correspond to what emerged from the investigation.
«In the following days, driven by requests for rectification by Forza Nuova and finally convinced by the further declarations of the Police headquarters, many journalists have corrected their articles eliminating the wrong references liable to a lawsuit. However, this is only a meager and late consolation: without a public admission of faults by these journalists and with an editing operation made when the news had already passed into the background, most readers will probably continue to believe blindly to the first – incorrect – version of the facts ».
Concluded by Forza Nuova Piemonte: ” In a historical moment in which fake news becomes a weapon of mass distraction, we do not intend to passively suffer this unjust media pillory and we will shortly activate it through legal means. We are tired of these “journalists” who in the morning wear their superhero cloak in search of buffaloes and then in the evening they exploit their “authority” and “respectability” to throw up accusations against those who do not think like them to guide public opinion in a certain direction ».
