Milan, November 30 - Italian journalist Alessandro
Sallusti said Friday he is refusing a house-arrest order on the
basis of not being able to cover news from home, challenging
police to take him to jail to serve out his 14-month defamation
term.
Sallusti is the editor of the newspaper Il Giornale,
Milan prosecutors had asked a court to place Sallusti under
house arrest after a September court ruled Sallusti was guilty
of printing libellous remarks made by an anonymous reader about
Italian Judge Giuseppe Cocilovo in Libero, the right-wing paper
he edited in 2007.
The comments concerned the decision by Cocilovo to grant a
13-year-old the right to have an abortion.
The Court of Cassation ruled that Sallusti was responsible
for the comment since the identity of the writer was unknown.
