Naples, January 24 - Right-wing extremists were
arrested in Naples and other cities Thursday for allegedly
organizing street brawls and recruiting young militants to their
violent anti-semitic cause.
Roughly 10 people were arrested in Naples, Salerno and
Latina near Rome for crimes including attacks on political
adversaries in Naples squares on various occasions in the spring
of 2011.
Other charges included possession of illegal arms and
explosives, injuring a public official, instances of stabbing
and beating, and hurling Molotov cocktails at a leftist youth
clubhouse.
Some of the suspects were placed under house arrest, such
as Emanuela Florino, the daughter of Michele Florino, a former
senator from the defunct right-wing National Alliance (AN)
party.
"They were systematically indoctrinating young militants to
hate foreigners and Jews at meetings in which, among other
things, they discussed Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf," said Naples
Assistant Prosecutor Rosario Cantelmo, who cited bugged
recordings.
Several more suspects were placed under investigation, as
were the activities of the local offices of extreme-right group
Casa Pound, which has been linked to many armed and bloody
confrontations with leftists in recent years across the country.
The group is currently campaigning for seats in parliament
in national elections.
The national leader of Casa Pound called the crackdown
Thursday unjustified, and said it was aimed at preventing the
group from "tackling the campaign with due serenity and on even
footing with other parties".
In any event, said Gianluca Iannone, "they will not
succeed.
