(ANSA) – Turin, May 24 – The Italian Parents' Association
(Moige) has filed a criminal complaint with Rome prosecutors
against Facebook for failed checks and vigilance on its online
platform that allegedly played a role in not having prevented
the January suicide of a 14-year-old girl in the northern
Italian city of Novara.
Investigators on Friday said they were probing eight
minors, between the ages of 15 and 17, for suspected incitement
of suicide and possession of child pornography.
A preliminary reconstruction at the time of the girl's
suicide said "negative gossip" may have pushed her to jump from
a window to her death.
News of her suicide triggered a torrent of Twitter messages
from friends and relatives fingering gossip-mongering bullies,
investigators found.
The teenager went to a party with friends the same night
she leaped from her parents' window, and was not known to have
particular problems or psychological issues.
