Padua, Mayor files lawsuit against “Il Fatto Quotidiano” and Laura Puppato
Massimo Bitonci did not like a post published by the Democratic Party Senator on his blog, hosted by the website of the newspaper
The mayor of Padua, Massimo Bitonci, sued the editor of Il Fatto Quotidiano.it Peter Gomez and the Senator Laura Puppato, author of a post written on her blog and hosted on the online daily.
The mayor, who convinced the council to file a complaint, did not like the speech published on November 10th by the Senator from Treviso of the Democratic Part entitled: “The League and its racist exploits for sheer thirst of visibility. The Bitonciexample”. According to the indictment, the post would contain “offensive and seriously harming epithets and expressions undermining the dignity and reputation of the Mayor.” In the post, Senator Bitonci criticized for the mayor for his refusal to meet with the Moroccan consul Ahmed El Khdar.
