Libya / Italy / Statement by Minister Frattini on the Italians repatriated from Libya

 

TRIPOLI, Libya, October 6, 2008/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Regarding statements by the President of the Association of Italians Repatriated from Libya (AIRL), Giovanna Ortu, Minister for Foreign Affairs Franco Frattini commented as follows:

“I have no reply to Mrs. Ortu nor to her incredible personal insults, since I respect her pain and that of the many Italians deported many years ago from Libya.
It is clear that, if the complex efforts at gathering all the pertinent data and assessments have not yet been completed 38 years later, this is as a result of the objective difficulties in reconstructing them.
I have said, and I repeat, that we have no intention of forgetting or ignoring the legitimate rights of the Italians deported, and that obviously the efforts by the authorised offices will continue.
We are willing, and I repeat this as well, to collaborate with the Parliament on any positive proposals in this regard”.
