12 Ottobre 2018
Milan, October 12 - An alleged stalker can be treated on a par with an alleged mafioso and can be held for the similar danger he poses to society, a Milan court said Friday. The principle, established for the first time in Italy, was set by the prevention measures department of the Milan court on the basis of the 2017 reform of the anti-mafia code. In the specific case it was applied to a Filippino accused of persecutory acts against his ex-girlfriend.
