#AceNewsReport – Apr.12: Senegalese-Italian Ousseynou Sy, 48, was found guilty again by the Milan court of appeals after a first-instace trial last July:

Italy: ‘Migrant who set bus full of children on fire blames anti-mass migration pol, gets sentence reduced on appeal on Friday’

“Term cut to 19 yrs for man who torched school bus,” ANSA, April 9, 2021:

The crime was committed at San Donato Milanese.

Sy had told the court he is neither a killer nor a terrorist despite his apparent attempt to kill the occupants of his vehicle.

“As an Italian citizen and an African, I accuse” (anti-immigration League leader Matteo) Salvini, (who was deputy premier and interior minister at the time of the hijacking), “and his government of crimes against humanity and genocide”.

Sy argued that Salvini had condemned many migrants to death and torture by blocking Italian ports to NGO run rescue ships….

Sy, a man with a criminal record who is originally from Senegal but has been an Italian citizen since 2004, got off the bus after it was stopped by police, who were alerted by students on board.

He had just set it alight….
