Federico Negri, born in 1994, from Pozzolo Formigaro (Alessandria), a town on the outskirts of Novi Ligure, was therefore returning to Italy after a two and a half year trip first to China, then to Nepal.
“I was appointed by the family to help Federico – says the Alexandrian lawyer Claudio Falleti, contact person for the Penelope Piemonte association -. Since mid-July, coordinating with an Indian colleague and the collaborator who speaks then, we are following the evolution of procedural situation “.
“Federico did not know exactly where he was – explains the family lawyer – and the police deny the failure to pay a tax of 40 euros, therefore an unauthorized presence in the area, with the risk of from 2 to 8 years in prison”.
Therefore, concern is growing and the legal pool is following the developments on a daily basis also with the Farnesina, “from which we ask for more support to help Federico get home”.
