Rome, July 16 - Deputy Premier and Interior
Minister Angelino Alfano reiterated in his formal statement to
parliament Tuesday that no government minister had been informed
before the deportation of the daughter and wife of a Kazakh
dissident Mukhtar Ablyazov.
Alfano has been accused of mismanaging the case of the
dissident's wife Alma Shalabayeva and six-year-old girl, who
were seized in a nighttime raid and put on a private jet with
Kazakh diplomats at the end of May.
Alfano's chief of staff at the interior ministry, Giuseppe
Procaccini, resigned on Tuesday over the controversial
deportation.
Procaccini was reportedly contacted by Kazakhstan's
ambassador to Rome in relation to the expulsion before it took
place.
Alfano, who is also the secretary of ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi's centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) party, has
said he did not know anything about the case until after the
pair were deported.
"At no point during the operations did any Italian official
have information that Ablyazov was a political refugee and not a
dangerous fugitive," Alfano said.
