HUGE! Criminal Trial in Sicily: How George Soros is Attempting to Lock up Populist Leader Matteo Salvini for Protecting Italy’s Borders


by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

Last Saturday, Oct. 3, former Italian Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini went on trial in Catania, Siclily, for alleged “kidnapping“ even though the prosecutor calls the case “baseless.“

Gateway Pundit reveals how leftist NGOs backed by George Soros and the EU are trying to lock up the head of Italy’s leading opposition party.

In July 2019, the Italian Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini refused to let 116 illegal migrants ashore off the coast guard ship “Bruno Gregoretti” in Catania until other European countries agreed to take in the illegal aliens (Italian: “Clandestini”).

For this crime, Matteo Salvini went on trial Saturday for “kidnapping”, which could earn him a sentence of 15 years in prison, even though Salvini technically enjoyed immunity from prosecution as a parliamentarian.

This July, his political enemies voted to suspend his legal immunity – a dangerous precedent for any politician in a position of power.

As Il Giornale reported, the prosecutor in Catania believes the case is “baseless”. Sending a  Minister of the Interior to prison for protecting his country’s borders would certainly be unprecedented in legal history.

Salvini voiced confidence Saturday, and was supported by his political rivals Giorgia Meloni (Fratelli d’Italia) and Antonio Tajani (Forza Italia) in Catania. A majority of Italians supports Salvini’s law and order stance on illegal migration, reports Lorenzo Pregliasco on YouTrend .

What few people know however, is that the case against Salvini is not being pressed by the Sicilian DA or the “kidnapped” migrants, but by left-wing NGOs funded by the EU and George Soros Open Society Foundations, as Il Giornale reports.

The only plaintiffs to support the case out of the 116 illegal migrants is the Nigerian couple Jafra and Aishat Saha, who had to wait 20 hours in Catania harbor to go ashore in Europe while pregnant.

The case is actually being filed by NGOs which belong to the leftist Italian “community organizers” ARCI, Associazione Ricreativa e Culturale Italiana, which operates youth, culture and community centers in all of Italy, as well as its allies in the environmental NGO Legambiente. Both organizations are closely tied to the ruling leftist PD party. Legambiente president Gianfranco Zanna was a member of the Communist Youth PCI. “The only plaintiffs in this case are civil society organizations”, boasted Legambiente attorney Daniela Ciancimino.
