The parade of witnesses, about thirty in total, began at the trial for the abduction of Silvia Romano. There are two processes-Moses Luari Chende, a Kenyan giriama, the ethnic group that lives on the country’s coast, and Abdulla Gababa Wari, also from Kenya, but of the original tribe (the one accused of having organized the kidnapping) of Somalian. A third accused of taking part in the kidnapping, Ibrahim Adan Omar, will be judged separately in a different case. According to investigators, he was captured far from Chakama, near Garissa, during another police operation, and found in possession of firearms. His trial will begin on August 19th.
Finally, it seems that Kenyan investigators have finally seriously engaged in the matter. This is only because they need the collaboration of the Italians to reveal the case of corruption that is disturbing the policy of the former British colony, that of the three dams that the CMC of Ravenna should have built. For now – according to the accusations -the company was able to make 600 million dollars disappear. Yesterday the judges of Nairobi issued an arrest warrant against Paolo Porcelli, managing director of the CMC. A signal that in return the Kenyans are ready to hand over Silvia’s kidnappers to Italian justice?
