Defamation. Pm files lawsuit against journalist in Abruzzo, pending judgment
On July 7th, 2016 in Campobasso will be issued the sentence for defamation of the prosecutor Nicola Trifuoggi, which sees as defendants Silvio Paolucci, former regional secretary of the Democratic Party, and the journalist Silvano Barone of TGR Abruzzo of RAI.
In November 2011, in a statement, Paolucci accused the pool of magistrates who gave way to the investigation on the Health-gate of the Abruzzo region with the arrest of the head of the regional council Ottaviano Del Turco, to continue “to use two weights and two measures (i.e. lack of objective judgment) for the left and for the right.” The reporter brought up phrases from the note. They were sued by three public prosecutors, but two withdrew their complaint.
