Milan evicts 86-year-old pensioner who couldn't pay rent


Milan, May 14 - The city on Tuesday evicted an
86-year-old pensioner who hasn't been able to afford rent since
2012, Sicet tenants' union said Wednesday.
The elderly man found himself locked out as a bailiff
handed him an eviction notice, Sicet said.
The city was forced to postpone a previous eviction attempt
when Sicet members occupied the pensioner's home in March.
Thanks to the sit-in, the city also agreed to assign the
old man a council flat.
The city placed the pensioner in a hotel after the
eviction, which authorities said they carried out without
warning "to avoid another sit-in".
Currently in Milan, more than 300 evicted families are
living in makeshift conditions while awaiting a council flat
while thousands of city-owned units go empty, the union said.
Evicted families and members of Sicet, which belongs to
CISL, one of Italy's three major labor confederations, will
sleep in tents at city hall on the nights of May 29 and 30 to
focus authorities' attention to their plight, the union said.
