Rome, March 29 - The secretary general of police
union Silp Cgil has distanced himself from colleagues who staged
a protest in the northern Italian town of Ferrara outside the
office of the mother of an 18-year-old man who died in police
custody in 2005 with four officers later convicted of his
manslaughter.
''After all our battles to democratize the police force,
and after the tragedy a mother and a family has gone through, it
is discomforting to see what was organized in Ferrara by the
Coisp police union'', said Daniele Tissone.
''Sentences, particularly if they are definitive ones, need
to be respected''.
Tissone's is the last in a series of public denouncements
of the protest that took place on Wednesday outside the city
offices where Patrizia Moretti, the mother of Federico
Aldrovandi.
The demonstration sparked a national outcry from fellow
officers, government officials and civil society alike.
Two dozen Coisp police union members staged the protest in
solidarity with the four officers convicted of Federico's
manslaughter on September 25, 2005.
The teenager, who was stopped on his way home after
spending Saturday night with friends, died of asphyxia after
police used excessive force to restrain him, sitting on his
chest.
Aldrovandi's family is now suing the police union secretary
and a Senator for defamation following the protest.
