Kelly Duda

, American director and journalist author of a famous investigation in Italy, is accused of

"offending the honor or prestige of a magistrate"


Yesterday the trial was adjourned to next July 13, before the single judge of Rome.

Duda is defended in court by the lawyer

Andrea Di Pietro

of the Ossigeno association in the trial born of a sentence that he allegedly said to the prosecutor

Lucio Giugliano

after having testified, at the request of the civil parties, on 4 December 2017 at a hearing before the Court of Naples of the trial against, among others, the former manager of the Ministry of Health,

Duilio Poggiolini


That trial ended with the acquittal of all the accused.

The proceeding against Duda has reached piazzale Clodio for competence and Giugliano will be heard in the next hearing. 

The Ossigeno association traces the portrait of Duda as follows: "he is the producer and director of the famous documentary

Factor 8. The Arkansas Prison Blood Scandal.

This documentary, released in 2005, brought to light a scandal of international dimensions that involved the unscrupulous behavior in the field of health checks by the US authorities and pharmaceutical companies in various countries, including Italy. The documentary shows how thousands of patients who had received transfusions of blood products obtained from infected plasma have died as they in turn infected ".

As a result of Duda's investigation, 5,500 Canadians who had fallen ill from contaminated blood were allegedly awarded $ 1 billion in compensation from the Canadian federal government in 2006.
