(ANSA) – TURIN, FEB 18 – A Turin city councillor for the
anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) has been placed under
investigation for posting a cartoon of a hook-nosed Jew with a
bloody knife behind his back in an attack on Gedi group
newspapers’ support for new Premier Mario Draghi.
    In the post, Monica Amore was perpetuating stereotypical
defamation of Jews as power-hungry manipulators, according to a
complaint from the Turin Jewish community.
    Amore has been placed under investigation for defamation
aggravated by racial hatred.
    The Gedi group includes national newspapers La Repubblica and La
Stampa.
    Amore, who opposes the appointment of the former ECB chief to
lead a national unity government, was accusing the dailies of
being part of a liberal establishment elite backed by so-called ‘strong powers’. (ANSA).
