(ANSA) – AOSTA, 04 FEB – The trial against the deputy of the mixed group Sara Cunial has been postponed to next April 5 for the examination of the witnesses of the prosecutor and the defense and, possibly, of the accused. She is accused before the Aosta court of refusal to provide general information, insult and threat to a public official for facts dating back to April 2021, on the occasion of a demonstration against distance learning in Aosta.
At the beginning of the hearing, a defense lawyer of Sara Cunial opposed the presence of journalists in the courtroom. The trial, taking place in front of a single judge, is public: the only access restrictions are linked to the maximum number of people allowed by the rules to contain the spread of Covid. Thus judge Marco Tornatore, noting the public interest, agreed to the presence of the reporters, as requested by the prosecutor of Aosta Francesco Pizzato, who represents the accusation.
A second lawyer of the deputy filed an application for exemption from the presentation of the green pass (requesting the cancellation of the Dpcm 17/12/21) to access the court and therefore was unable to attend the hearing. The defense of the deputy announced that, in view of the next hearing, she will deposit a video that will become part of the trial. The financier at the center of the disputed facts filed a civil action. (HANDLE).
