Special service by AGI on behalf of the Italian Prime Minister’s office
Rome, Italy - With a letter sent to defence minister Antonio Martino, SDI senator Giovanni Crema - president of the inter-parliamentary union - resigned from the presidency of the bilateral section “Italy-Cuba frienship”. “I acknowledged that, following the last tragic events, there is no possibility to communicate frankly”.

  “My availability, as a democratic socialist, to take part in initiatives to help the Cuban people ferry across to a democracy respecting human rights is still intact, but it cannot be fruitful without a credible interlocutor. Since my mandate began, my only dialogue with the embassy focused on Cuba’s request of an institu tional intervention which 5 Cuban Heroes are victim of, “prisoners of the Empire “, that is, tried and condemned in the USA.

I have always fought for human rights, hence, at a personal level, I will investigate on this. But I cannot fuel the fire of institutional talks which risk becoming grotesque. I thank you for the faith you had in me, but I am forced to hand in my resignations”.
