Violenze in Italia contro i migranti: richiesta ufficiale di procedura di infrazione

Interrogazione scritta

According to a circular diffused by the Italian Ministry of Interior on 25.09.2014 irregular migrants refusing to be identified commit a crime and police forces should “obtain pictures and fingerprints even with the use of force, if necessary”.

Following the diffusion of these instructions Italian media have circulated photographs of migrants’ bruised and wounded bodies and their declarations to have been beaten, threatened and segregated because of their refusal to comply with this circular.

According to the Commission does the Italian circular comply with the European Charter of Fundamental Rights standards of necessity, proportionality and right to dignity (Art.1)?

Should Italian authorities be reminded that according to
– Art.8 of Directive 2008/115/EC coercive measures must “be used as a last resort”, be proportionate and “not exceed reasonable force”,
– Art.8 of Council Regulation 2725/2000 the collection of fingerprints shall be in accordance with the safeguards laid down in the ECHR and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child?

Will the Commission initiate infringement proceedings and in any case invite Italy to urgently modify the circular – or any other systemic violation promoted by the Italian state towards migrants?
