The terrorist Brahim Aoussaoui, 21, that Thursday slaughtered two people and decapitated to a third in the nice cathedral, came to Europe disembarking in the italian island from Lampedusa and it followed the entire administrative journey of any immigrant upon arrival at an EU port.
Italy He now wonders how it was possible that he went unnoticed or that he escaped since, according to the recently signed Italian-Tunisian protocols, he had to be repatriated. Matteo Salvini, Líder de la Liga, currently in the opposition, who as Minister of the Interior (2018) blocked the ports to immigration, has asked that, if the information is confirmed, the current Minister of the Interior resign. In a tweet on Thursday, the politician does not mention that it was he who dismantled a large part of the system of controls of immigrants destined to be refugees or returned to their country, for which the undocumented and irregular went into clandestine illegality, that is, they disappeared to Europe.
The first news that Aoussaoui came to France from Italy It does not come from Rome or Paris, but from Eric Ciotti, deputy of the French Republicaines party for the Alpes-Maritimes department, which borders Italy. “The protagonist of the Nice attack is a Tunisian who recently arrived from Lampedusa,” he wrote on Thursday.
According to the first reconstructions, Aoussaoui arrived in Lampedusa last September aboard a barge. He was identified, they did a PCR, he spent two weeks in quarantine on board the ship Rhapsody and later, having tested negative, he was transferred to Bari, already on the peninsula. In that city they gave him an expulsion paper, with the order to leave Italy in a week. Three weeks have passed and it has appeared on the nice cathedral.
The practice of giving an irregular immigrant a paper with the expulsion order but being free to move as he wants usually ends up on the run. But for Salvini “If with regard to the terrorist from Nice, the landing in Lampedusa in September, the passage through Bari and later the flight is confirmed, we ask for the resignation of the Interior Minister, Luciana Lamorgese.” Luca Casarini, head of the Mediterranea Saving Humans mission, has answered him, according to which “only mean people and without shame in this moment of pain can think of using tragedies for the propaganda of hatred, such as vultures that feed on corpses for their electoral interests, playing the game the Islamic State & rdquor ;.
French researchers have a Italian Red Cross card with his name, although at the headquarters of the organization they explain: “It is not a card, but simply a piece of paper with our logo that is worthless and that includes name, surname, identification number as recorded in the registry.” From the Red Cross they explain that the document “serves only to know who is in quarantine.” Aouissaoui He was not registered and, being a Tunisian immigrant, who could not request fugitive status, he could be expelled immediately, but no one did. He had by law seven days to return to his country on his own. The Italian-Tunisian agreement will allow Italy to repatriate up to 80 Tunisians per day.
