Minister Salvini will not be investigated

Interior Minister Matteo Salvini will not be investigated over his refusal to let 177 migrants disembark from an Italian coast guard vessel last summer.

The Italian Senate on Wednesday voted against lifting Salvini’s parliamentary immunity, effectively blocking prosecutors from potentially sending him to trial for detaining the group of migrants, which included minors, on board the ship for more than 10 days in August.
