The request for a civil action was also made by the lawyer Domenico Ielo, brother of the deputy prosecutor, by the Ministry of Justice and by Cittadinanzattiva. “The request for a civil action by Domenico Ielo – explained his lawyer Luca Troyer – is motivated by the enormous damage to the image that these illegal dossiers with the subsequent transmission to the press have caused him”.
