Italy: Anarchists claim shooting of nuclear firm's boss
last update: May 11, 14:37
Genoa, 11 May (AKI) - An anarchist group has claimed the shooting of Italian nuclear company Ansaldo's boss Roberto Adinolfi in the northwestern port city of Genoa earlier this week.
The claim was contained in a leafet signed by the previously unknown 'Olga' cell of the Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI) and mailed to the offices of Italian daily Corriere della Sera in an envelope bearing a Genoa postmark.
"We have maimed Roberto Adinolfi, one of the many warlocks of the atom," read the message contained in the leaflet, published by Corriere della Sera on its website.
The leaflet is considered credible, unnamed sources close to the investigation told Adnkronos.
The message calls Adolfini a "grey assassin", blaming him and and the former conservative government for trying to reintroduce nuclear power in Italy and for playing down its adverse environmental impact.
"Identify your objective, strike where it hurts most, know how to recognise your enemy, even when they are dressed in sheep's clothing," the FAI message continued.
The leaflet accuses science and technology of being "tools in the hands of capitalism", and rails against Ansaldo and a long list of Italian state companies, as well as the European and global nuclear industry.
"Only the intensification of conflict can led to a path of individual and social freedom," ends the message.
Adolfini was on Friday discharged from a Genoa hospital, where he underwent surgery after being shot in the leg several times by gunmen aboard a motorbike as he left his home in the city on Monday.
The anarchist movement has a strong presence in Genoa.
FAI claimed responsibility for a package bomb found outside the Greek embassy and defused in December 2010. Nobody was injured in the incident., but two parcel bombs at the Chilean and Swiss embassies in the Italian capital on that same month seriously injured two people who opened them.
