Judge Apologises for Freeing Migrant Who Killed Italian for Being ‘Happy and White’

The judge who freed confessed killer Said Mechaquat after an appeal has publicly apologised to the family of the Moroccan-born migrant’s victim, Stefano Leo.

Judge Edmondo Barelli Innocenti, who is the president of the Court of Appeal in Turin, publicly apologised to Leo’s family, saying, “As a representative of the state I would like to apologise to the family of Stefano Leo,” but added,

“I do not agree to say that the Court of Appeal is jointly responsible for the murder. We did what we had to do,” Il Giornalereports

This “apology” comes after it was revealed that the Italian-Moroccan had been sentenced in June of 2016 to a year and six months in prison for aggravated assault on an ex-girlfriend.

At the time, another judge had denied him a suspended sentence in the case, referring to past crimes he had also committed.
