Without success, the defendant’s defense – Salvatore G., 42-year-old Genoese – tried to argue that it was not a violent assault against Dziri S. – this is the victim’s name – but “the exercise of a duty of search, involuntarily boundless in injuries due to the behavior of opposition “assumed by the detainee. The deputy inspector of the penitentiary police is accused of having led the detainee to the search room “after having him naked, first hitting him with slaps in the face, then after the victim had curled up on the ground with his arms over his head to protect himself from blows. “kicked him in the back, head and left arm”.
