“Out of a pool of 28 thousand sensitive targets, in Italy 286 are classified as highly sensitive and therefore have 24-hour surveillance with fixed safeguards”, said the Minister of the Interior
“The fight against irregular immigration is one thing and the fight against terrorism is another: arrival by sea allows us to intercept more effectively, as has happened, all the people who may present themselves on that route. This year in at least two cases we intercepted people who were not trustworthy, for whom there was evidence of phenomena of contiguity with Islamic radicalization organizations in the countries of origin: they were arrested and repatriated. We do this because we are organized in the first entry hotspots through a crossroads of databases”. Thus the Minister of the Interior, Matteo Piantedosi, on Radio Rai Uno.
“Out of a pool of 28 thousand sensitive targets in Italy, 286 are classified as highly sensitive and therefore have 24-hour surveillance with fixed safeguards. We have made an overall assessment of the targets but not all of them present such vulnerability characteristics as to require 24-hour fixed surveillance”, he said the Minister of the Interior. The Minister of the Interior, regarding the decision to intensify Italian controls on the borders with Slovenia, said: “Arrival by sea allows us to intercept more effectively, as happened, those characters who should present themselves in that route. We are organized in the first entry hotspots through a combination of databases, there are specific controls. The Balkan route is different – he added -: it is an arrival by land which concerns a transit of people from countries like Bosnia that all analysts tell us that it is a country that in some way also acts as a hotbed of environments and groups that have to do with Islamic radicalisation. If the numbers of the migratory phenomenon there are lower, the alerts and concerns that have come to us from the analyzes The facts indicated to us that this was the most vulnerable section: from there to the decision we made”, commented Piantedosi.
