  • Description

    Two young Italians arrived back in Italy by air yesterday (Saturday February 14th) after being released by Soviet authorities. They had been sentenced to a year in a labour camp after protesting in Moscow against the detention of Soviet intellectuals.

    Last week a Moscow court sentenced them for what is called 'malicious hooliganism'.

    The two Italians, Terese Marinuzzi, aged 22, and Valtenio Tacchi, 23, had handcuffed themselves to railings in a Moscow store and scattered leaflets calling for the release of intellectuals.

    The Soviet Ambassador to Italy told the Italian premier-designate, Signor Rumor, that the Soviet Parliament had decreed the release of the two people to facilitate good relations between the two counties.

    There was no immediate news of a Belgian and a Norwegian who were also sentenced after a similar demonstration.
