(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 23 – Laura Boldrini, an MP for the
centre-left Democratic Party (PD) and the former speaker of the
Lower House, said Tuesday that a man she reported to prosecutors
for threatening her online had been convicted by a criminal
court. She said the man had been handed a six-month jail term and
ordered to pay her damages for a death threat posted on
Facebook.
    He had written “more P38 (gun) lead for Boldrini”. “I stood as a civil plaintiff (in the criminal trial) and I
testified,” Boldrini said via Facebook.
    “We must report online hate.
    “Threats and insults cannot go unpunished.
    “This is a way to take back the Web as a space for debate…
    “Let’s now allow ourselves to be intimidated!”. (ANSA).
