“My client has repeatedly said that the instigators of the Bologna massacre are the secret services, the CIA, the Mossad and also Gladio. And that part of the institutions knew about it. I have spoken to him in recent days and he is available to be heard in the trial against the principals and financiers of the attack “. So, at AdnKronos, the lawyer Sandro Clementi, defender of Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, the pro-Palestinian terrorist known as ‘Carlos the Jackal’ who is serving life in France in a prison outside Paris.
According to the so-called ‘Palestinian track’, Carlos’s organization ‘Separat’ was involved in the massacre of August 2, 1980, together with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. The Bologna prosecutor also investigated the presence of two German terrorists linked to the group, Thomas Kram and Christa Margot Frohlich.
Clementi recalls, however, that in recent years, and also on the occasion of the trial of the ex Nar Gilberto Cavallini, “my client has given his availability to be listened to but has not been taken into consideration. The Prosecutor’s Office obviously doesn’t want to hear it. ”
This is one of the reasons why the ‘Carlos’ defender is skeptical about the new line of investigation into principals inaugurated by the Bologna Public Prosecutor’s Office. “I do not believe in the determination of the Prosecutor’s Office – he explains – to continue the investigations to identify the principals, decades later: coincidentally, the identified principals are dead. If they don’t want to hear my client how can they investigate subjects that are even higher than he is so deeply? ”
Carlos – he recalls – “has repeatedly reiterated the estrangement of Palestinian organizations from the massacre, but when he pointed his finger at the secret services, afterwards, nobody wanted to hear him anymore. He is always available to shed light. ” “He also excluded – he adds – that the instigators of the massacre were neo-fascist groups and those who were definitively condemned”.
