(ANSA) – Bologna, September 13 – Prosecutors in Bologna on
Thursday said they would follow up on a death threat received by
Giovanni Favia, a dissident member of gadfly comedian Beppe
Grillo's populist Five Star Movement (M5S).
"All necessary investigations will be carried out rapidly
to identify the author, as always happens in such cases, if a
formal complaint is filed," said a spokesperson for the
prosecutor's office in relation to the threat received by the
Emilia Romagna regional councillor on his Facebook page on
Wednesday.
"Favia should have his throat cut in public. Those who
behave like this must be eliminated," read the anonymous post.
Favia is at the centre of a bitter row within the M5S
after denouncing the amount of power held by Grillo and the
party's co-founder Gianroberto Casaleggio in off-the-record
comments broadcast last week.
Grillo has since distanced himself from Favia, who accused
the comedian of trying to kick him out.
