(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 10 – Four police officers were found
guilty on Wednesday of assaulting Stefano Origone, a reporter
for daily newspaper La Repubblica, during clashes between police
and anti-fascists in Genoa on May 23, 2019.
    The clashes took place following a rally by far-right group
Casapound.
    The four officers were sentenced to 40 days in jail in a
fast-track trial after being found guilty of causing bodily harm
via excessive use of weapons.
    The judge said the cops did not recognise Origone as a
journalist, having mistook him as a protestor.
    Such short jail terms in Italy are usually suspended. (ANSA).
