On board a police bus, which took them to the rear entrance of Palazzo Chigi, survivors and families of the victims of the Cutro shipwreck arrived this morning at the seat of government, who responded to the invitation of Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni. The group, made up of about thirty people, flew to Rome from Calabria aboard an Air Force C-130.
The meeting with the Prime Minister, which lasted about an hour, in the Green Room, took place confidentially and behind closed doors. The delegation then got back on the State Police bus headed to Ciampino, where the flight that will take them back to Calabria is waiting for them.
In the green room with the Prime Minister also present the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Antonio Tajani, and the Undersecretary to the Presidency Alfredo Mantovano.
According to some members, the delegation asked Meloni to continue looking for those who are still missing, to facilitate reunification with families abroad and to create, with Europe, humanitarian corridors to help people in countries such as Afghanistan where living conditions are not safe. The police moved TV operators, photographers and journalists who were placed in front of the entrance to Palazzo Chigi, making them position them on one side of Piazza Colonna.
Meanwhile, the Public Prosecutor's Office of Rome has transmitted for territorial competence to the colleagues of Crotone the file relating to the complaint presented in recent days by parliamentarians Ilaria Cucchi, Angelo Bonelli and Nicola Fratoianni, in which it was asked to evaluate any ministerial responsibilities in the rescue machine in relation to the shipwreck of Cutro. In Piazzale Clodio the magistrates limited themselves to opening a model 45, that is, without suspects or hypotheses of crime.
