 "The tact of the Italian press which tells of my father's troubles, but omits a fundamental element in its bombastic titles. Everyone knows that my father left when I was just over a year old. Everyone knows that I chose to not to see him again at the age of eleven. Everyone knows that I never had contact with him again until his death. the many things that do not apply to me there is also the saying 'the sins of the fathers do not fall on the children'. Ps. Mrs. Jebreal, I hope you will be able to explain to the judge when and where I would have made the declaration that you attribute to me ", he the leader of FdI wrote on facebook.

The journalist wrote yesterday

: "Meloni is not guilty of the crimes committed by her father, but often exploits the crimes committed by some foreigners, to criminalize all immigrants, describing them as a security threat. In a democracy there are individual responsibilities, NOT guilt / collective punishment ".
