On Tuesday, September 6th, seven comrades were arrested and accused of being members of the Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI). The arrests were made by the DIGOS (Division of General Investigations and Special Operations) headed by prosecutor Roberto Sparagna. The charge against our comrades is ‘subversive association with intent to commit terrorist acts’, coordinated by the prosecutor of Turin who has accused them of placing 3 bombs. One in the Crocetta neighborhood of Turin on March 5, 2007, and two in the police training center in Fossano on June 2, 2006.

In addition to the arrests of these individuals 8 other comrades have been placed under investigation. Raids were carried out on 29 homes located in Piemonte, Liguria, Lazio, Emilia Romagna, Lombardia, Sardegna, Abruzzo, Campania and Umbria.

The arrested anarchists are Anna Beniamino (46), Marco Biseti (33), Emiliano Danilo Cremonese (40), Alsessandro Mercogliano (43) and Valentina Spaziale. The identities of the other two comrades are unknown but it is believed to be two women linked to the attack by ‘Olga Cell’ FAI-FRI against nuclear power company executive Robert0 Adinolfi in Genoa, May 2012. Anarchist comrades Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito were sentenced for this action to 9 years, 4 months and 10 years, 8 months respectively.
