19 Ottobre 2016
Perugia, October 19 - A prosecutor on Wednesday called on a Perugia court to reverse the conviction of Somali national Omar Hashi Hassan for the 1994 murder in Mogadishu of Italian reporter Ilaria Alpi and cameraman Miran Hrovatin. Prosecutor Dario Razzi said Hashi Hassan "did not commit" the crime he served 16 years in jail for. He was the only person convicted of the murders. "If it is true that Hassan was convicted, we must also have the courage to admit that he many be innocent," Razzi said.
