The young man who ended up under house arrest in the investigation of the Trento prosecutor’s office which led to the anti-terrorism operation of the Carabinieri del Ros is a chemical technician. It emerged during the press conference on the investigation. “There has been a path of violent radicalization of the suspect who has gradually approached the ideology of the Islamic State up to the swearing of loyalty to IS in the virtual hands of a member of the Islamic State. This path leads him to take positions more radical “, explained the commander of the Ros, General Pasquale Angelosanto. The suspect, explains the commander of the Ros, is “due to his training, he is a chemical technician, and because of the workplace he frequented, he is able to procure precursor chemicals for very dangerous explosive material”. Substances which, General Angelosanto continues, were “partially removed from the workplace” and the material was then “set aside in a storage place”. “It is the first time that in Italy we are faced with an Italian citizen radicalized on his own at home, self-trained on the web “, observed the commander of the Ros, specifying that we are dealing with a” radicalized Italian subject “who was purchasing chemicals useful for explosive material.
