Rome, November 16 - Italian Justice Minister Paola
Severino on Friday opened an internal inquiry into claims that
tear gas was fired from the ministry building during Wednesday's
heated anti-austerity demonstrations in central Rome.
The probe comes in response for calls for clarification
after La Repubblica newspaper published an amateur video
showing three tear gas canisters being fired in quick succession
on the passing protesters from the second floor of the ministry
in Via Arenula.
There is speculation that the canisters may have been fired
by penitentiary police in service at the ministry.
However Severino on Friday said ''early checks show that
tear gas canisters of the kind that appear to have been fired
from the ministry are not available to the penitentiary police
department in Via Arenula'', adding however that ''controls will
continue with the greatest commitment, necessary rigour and
maximum speed''.
