Alessio Scandurra from Observation Mission “Detention Conditions of Adults” at the Antigone Association in Italy asks:
We recently had a meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on a pending bill on asylum/refugee status and procedures for human rights defenders coming from abroad. The issue regards the case in which a human rights defender needs to leave his country and go abroad:
is Italian legislation adequate to grant him entrance and protection in a reasonable time?
is the procedure rational and efficient?
is Italy a welcoming country in case of need?
what needs be changed in the legislation to make it better?
