Carlo Giuliani 1979 - 2001

Italy - A bomb was detonated yesterday in Sardinia outside a home belonging to a member of the paramilitary Carabinieri. Nobody was injured in the explosion, which occurred on the eve of a trial in which the bomb's target and a number of other senior police officers, doctors, nurses and prison guards will answer to accusations that they violently mistreated arrested demonstrators of the 2001 G8 meeting in Genoa. During the demonstration one protester shot then mutilated by Carabinieri, and scores where severely injured. The defendants can not be charged with torture because in Italy there are no laws which prohibit it.
