Rome, June 19 - A Carabinieri police officer who
gave evidence against colleagues accused of causing the death in
custody of Rome draughtsman Stefano Cucchi in October 2009 said
Tuesday that he was facing reprisals and called on the
government to help.
Riccardo Casamassima gave evidence at the trial of five
Carabinieri, three of them accused of causing Cucchi's death by
beating him.
Cucchi died in hospital a week after his arrest on a minor
drugs charge.
"I find myself suffering many consequences for having done my
duty, as a man and as a Carabiniere, by giving evidence in the
trial regarding Stefano Cucchi, who died because he was beaten
by my colleagues," Casamassima said in a video on Facebook.
"I appeal to ministers (Matteo) Salvini and (Luigi) Di Maio
and Premier (Giuseppe) Conte: listen to me".
