(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 19 – League leader Matteo Salvini
reiterated on Friday that the decisions he made regarding
migrants aboard the Gregoretti coast guard ship when he was
interior minister in 2019 were made together with the rest of
the then government.
    Salvini could go on a trial for abduction for refusing a landing
berth to the 131 migrants aboard the Gregoretti ship from July
27 to 31, 2019, when authorisation to land at Augusta near
Siracusa came from a judge.
    The case is one of several stemming from Salvini’s former closed
ports policy against migrant-rescue ships during his 14-month
stint as interior minister in ex-premier Giuseppe Conte’s first
    “I’m the one who risks 15 years in jail,” Salvini said after a
hearing before a Preliminary Hearing Judge (GUP).
    “They all pontificate and they all chatter but I’m the one who
is in the bunker courtroom, where the mafia trials are held, “Matteo Salvini is the defendant.
    “I heard of correct, coherent reconstruction of events today.
    “What we did, we did together. We decided together. We
celebrated together”. (ANSA).
