Bergamo prosecutor's comments spark controversy


Bergamo, January 16 - A prosecutor in the northern
Italian city of Bergamo who said a rape highlighted the dangers
of women going out alone after dark ignited controversy and a
rain of criticism from local politicians on Wednesday.
"I say this with all bitterness, but it would be better if
women did not go out alone in the evening," Prosecutor Francesco
Dettori told L'Eco di Bergamo after the rape of a 24-year-old
woman which led to the house arrest of a 32-year-old Kosovar.
"The duty of someone in charge of public management is not
to surrender to criminality but to furnish better security to
citizens," said Matteo Oriani, a provincial councilman and
member of the centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) Party.
A centre-left Democratic Party (PD) candidate from Bergamo
for the regional elections, Elisabetta Olivari, said, "Is he
suggesting we stay at home? To give up evening appointments
because we're women? I will continue to circulate my ideas even
after (afternoon) cocktail hours".
