08-10-2005 13:08

Amazing as it may seem, the court trial in Italy over the brutal police raid on the Diaz school during the 2001 Genoa G8 protests, may be effectively cancelled.

The enquiry and trial of police accused of committing brutal acts is due to start this week, on Friday 14th October. Yet due to a new law currently going through the Italian parliament it may never conclude, meaning that no one will be punished.
