Silvia Romano, prosecutor Rome calls for the seizure investigation to be dismissed

The Milanese cooperative of the non-profit organization Africa Milele, kidnapped on 20 November 2018 not far from Malindi, was freed in May 2020

The Rome prosecutor’s office has requested the dismissal of the proceeding relating to the kidnapping of Silvia Romano, the Milanese aid worker of the non-profit organization Africa Milele kidnapped on November 20, 2018 while she was in the village of Chakama, about 80 km from Malindi, and released in May of 2020. A kidnapping file for terrorism purposes was open in Piazzale Clodio.

The Capitoline public prosecutors, coordinated by the deputy prosecutor Sergio Colaiocco, asked for it to be dismissed in the light of the lack of collaboration on the part of the Kenyan authorities which effectively prevented them from being able to formalize the accusation also in Italy against three men, already on trial in Kenya. In fact, no response has reached the Rome prosecutor’s office to the three rogatory letters sent to the Nairobi authorities.

The filing request made to the investigating judge also concerns the part relating to the non-profit organization Africa Milele with which Silvia Romano had left.
