Lawyer: Case of Hasci Omar Hassan is worst page in Italian justice

The lawyer of Hasci Omar Hassan, the Somali man wrongly convicted and sentenced for the murder of Italian journalists Ilaria Alpi and Miran Hrovatin, said on Tuesday that the ordeal of his client represents the worst page for Italian justice. Speaking in an interview with private TV channel TV2000, lawyer Douglas Duale said that "we will request a compensation for Hassan. We will file an appeal in Perugia but we will have to respect the legal timetable, so we will file it in February".

"Our case is not an unfair detention, but a judicial error. It's the blackest and darkest page in Italian justice", he added. Hassan was sentenced to 26 years in prison for the murder of Alpi and Hrovatin, who were killed in Mogadishu in March 1994, and spent 16 years in jail before his conviction was oveturned acknowledging that he wasn't involved in the killings.
