Toxic mud: reporters initially sentenced then acquitted
Carlo D’Adamo and Roberta Sangiorgi, sued by the a businessman from Emilia and defended by the Legal Aid Office of Ossigeno
On the 24th February 2020 the journalists Carlo D’Adamo and Roberta Sangiorgi, sued by an entrepreneur from Emilia and defended by the Legal Aid Office of Ossigeno per l’Informazione, were acquitted by the Criminal Court of Bologna in relation to one of the articles for which they had been sued, but were sentenced (each with a suspended penalty of 10,000 euro fine, in addition to the legal costs) for two other articles disputed in the lawsuit.
The Public Prosecutor had asked for an 8-month prison sentence without a suspended sentence. The defence lawyers, Andrea Di Pietro and Valerio Vartolo, will appeal against that part of the judgement that provides for the sentence.
The three articles reported the story of the toxic mud stored at San Giovanni in Persiceto (Bologna) published in 2014 by Controcorrente.Globalist.it
