Question for written answer E-001164-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Alessandra Mussolini (PPE)

 Subject:  Interference by Amnesty International with the Italian forces of law and order
 Answer in writing 

On 24 February, around 20 Amnesty International observers took part in a demonstration organised in Rome by the National Association of Italian Partisans in order to monitor the conduct of the police and take note of any instances of disproportionate use of force by the police.

According to the national media, this move by Amnesty International was a direct consequence of the events that occurred during political protests held on 11 and 22 February in Piacenza and Turin respectively, when police officers came face-to-face with protesters. Five officers were injured in Piacenza and six were injured in Turin.

Can the Commission therefore say:
1. If it is aware of the above actions taken by Amnesty International?
2. If it considers it appropriate for a non-governmental organisation such as Amnesty International to pass judgment on police operations?
