Secured the 'chair' in the EP, the Italian activist is acquitted of all charges while Beleri remains in prison

Secured the 'chair' in the EP, the Italian activist is acquitted of

Ilaria Salis, the Italian anti-fascist activist, has been released from house arrest in Budapest. Her release came after she was elected as a member of the European Parliament, meaning she gained immunity from charges related to an alleged attack on neo-Nazis.

The case of Ilaria Salis, 39, a teacher from Monza, near Milan, sparked diplomatic protests and outrage in Italy after she was brought to court in Hungary in chains, with her hands shackled and her feet bound together. She was arrested in Budapest in February last year after a protest against a neo-Nazi rally. Salis was charged with three counts of attempted assault and accused of being part of a far-left organization. She denied the charges, which carried a sentence of up to 11 years in prison, writes The Guardian.

In a letter to her lawyer, she detailed the conditions she had faced since her arrest: cells infested with rats and insects, not being allowed to bathe for days, and a lack of urgent medical care. In May she was placed under house arrest in Budapest.

Salis won her seat as a candidate with the Alliance of Greens and Left, which won about 6.8% of the Italian vote on Sunday. After her election as a member of the European Parliament, her lawyers sought her release based on the immunity enjoyed by EU lawmakers. The court replied that it was waiting for the official communication of its choice to the parliament. On Monday, Salis called her lawyers in Italy to inform them that she had received the Hungarian judge's decision to release her from house arrest.

"At last! We are delighted by the news coming from Budapest, MEP Ilaria Salis can now return to Italy and fulfill her new role as shown by hundreds of thousands of voters," said Angelo Bonelli and Nicola Fratoianni, from the Green Alliance party and Left of Italy, in a joint statement.

"Our thanks go to all those who, like us, were outraged and did not accept the terrible conditions in which she was kept in Orban's prisons during these months. Now she can defend together with us the civil and social rights of the most vulnerable. We look forward to welcoming him,” they said. Salis is expected to return to Italy on Monday, her 40th birthday. 

Salis, like Fredi Beleri, the elected mayor of Himara, managed to secure her seat in the European Parliament while being arrested. He won in the European Parliament elections, while he was part of the lists of Kyriakos Mitsotakis

Fredi Beleri was sentenced to 2 years in prison for election corruption. He has appealed the sentence from GJKKO. Beleri was arrested 2 days before the local elections on May 14, after an investigation launched by the Prosecutor's Office of Vlora on May 8 with suspicions that the electoral headquarters of the "Together We Win" coalition candidate was distributing money in exchange for votes. Meanwhile, on March 5 of this year, Beleri was sentenced to two years in prison by the GJKKO, being declared guilty of "active corruption in elections".
