Concretely, > we ask your assistance in establishing a dialogue between the government > of Italy and the family of Aldo Bianzino, a victim of the war on drugs > in Europe.> > On Friday, October 12^th , 2007, Aldo Bianzino, a 44 years old man > living with his companion Roberta in Umbria, in the center of Italy, got > arrested because of a small cannabis plantation. Both are taken to the > police office of the town of Città di Castello, then to the prosecutor’s > office in Perugia and finally to the prison in Capanne. On Saturday > October 13th the lawyer on charge (Edoardo Maglio) meets Aldo at 1.00 pm > and Roberta soon afterwards. He informs Roberta that Bianzino is well > and that he is worried about her. Maglio is the last civil person who > has seen Bianzino alive. The next morning, October 14^th , at 08.10 AM, > Bianzino is found dead by two prison staff members.> > On Tuesday October 16^th , the legal doctor Lalli carries out the > autopsy. He declares to the family and three lawyers that he has found > injuries in Bianzino’s kidney, spleen, brain and ribs (two ribs are > broken) even though the body does not show blood signs and bruises. The > conclusion is that Aldo has died as a result of beatings inflicted on > him in such a way that vital organs are destroyed without the presence > of traces, a technic used by certain military corpses. On October 22^nd > , the local prosecutor, Petrazzini, starts an investigation against the > police officers who have arrested and guarded Bianzino. On November > 10^th , medical doctor Fortuni carries out a new autopsy, changing > completely the previous conclusions. In Fortuni’s report the injuries on > the spleen and the broken ribs are not mentioned anymore. The conclusion > of this report is that Aldo has died due to a brain haemorrhage and that > the wounds on the liver are caused by the efforts to reanimate him by > the staff members who found him.> > On February 10^th , 2008, the prosecutor Petrazzini decides to close the > investigation. According to the Italian authorities, the official cause > of Aldo Bianzino’s death is brain haemorrhage. The family and friends of > Aldo Bianzino have never accepted this conclusion. Through various > efforts they are trying to obtain a conversation with the Italian > government in which they can clear up some of their doubts on this > version. Until now, Italian authorities have not responded to these > efforts.> > We ask you to do whatever possible to inform the Italian Minister of > Justice, Interior and Foreign Affairs of this situation, urging them to > contact the familiy of Aldo Bianzino and give them a proper explanation > of what is happened in the night between 13 and 14 October.
