Rome, September 12 - Pope Francis on Thursday met
with a group of people that allege they and their relatives have
been victims of alleged miscarriages of justice, including
coordinator Lucia Uva, who says her brother died due to alleged
police brutality.
Uva told Ansa she had delivered a file containing documents
on 57 cases of alleged malpractice, of which 50 people are dead
and 7 still living.
The cases, she contends, are similar to the ones involving
her brother Giuseppe Uva, who was stopped aged 43 and drunk at
three in the morning back in 2008 by police in the Northern
Italian town of Varese and taken to the local police station
where he died due "from a physical beating".
The woman had been called in to a private meeting with the
Pontiff after sending him a fax on September 4.
She organized for a series of other representatives and
victims of malpractice to attend as well, including Ilaria
Cucchi, the sister of Stefano Cucchi who died in Rome on October
22 2009, as well as Claudia, the sister of Dino Budroni who died
in Rome on July 30 2011.
"The Pope put his hands on my head and caressed my face
while I spoke. I felt a great warmth and great hope now in our
search for the truth", Uva said. "Francesco asked us to pray for
him, and assured us he would pray for us".
"I would never have expected an answer from him within such
a short time frame".
