Catania racial hate trial: Lawyer clarifies defendant did not write “Throw them into the sea”

In a statement, lawyer Davide Tutino clarifies that his client did not use the expression “throw them into the sea where they came from,” as wrongly attributed in an article. Rather, his client only used the word “throw them.” The lawyer disagrees with the legal interpretation that this phrase qualifies as a crime and believes it does not reference the physical, ethnic, or cultural characteristics of the offended person. The defense intends to appeal the recent conviction and fines for inciting racial and ethnic hatred on Facebook.
