Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Infrastructure, Matteo Salvini, was the target of a death threat this Thursday (2) sprayed on the walls of a building in Milan and announced the date of protest against “all types of violence”.
“Salvini must die”, says the phrase written on the facade of a building in Piazzale Libia.
In a post on social media, the leader of the ultranationalist League party said he had “pity for the owners of the property” and said he hoped “that the idiots are identified and punished by cleaning up the writings.”
“On Saturday we will demonstrate in Milan to defend Western values and condemn any form of violence and anti-Semitism. Anyone who thinks they can scare us, like any ‘baby gang’ that threatened to kill me by defacing a building in my city, is sadly mistaken “, he wrote.
Several members of the League expressed solidarity with Salvini, emphasizing that it is necessary to “repudiate violence and intimidation”, in addition to “having a strong stance from all political forces”.
“We hope that these threats are not taken lightly, not only by the police forces but also by other political forces, because they are serious, very serious threats, and the condemnation is unanimous”, commented the coordinator of the League in Lombardy, Fabrizio Cecchetti. .
