Seven to stand trial for promoting Fascism in Italy
Rome: Seven members of the so-called "Militia" group will go on trial in Rome for promoting Fascism, racial and ethnic hatred, and threats to Italian institutions.
The trial will begin in December.
A judge on Wednesday gave two other members of the group prison sentences of up to eight months after they plea-bargained.
Prosecutors allege that the "Militia" group targeted the President of Rome`s Jewish community, Riccardo Pacific, with offensive banners and posters across Rome.
The group also targeted Italian politicians including ex-Speakers of the lower and upper houses of Parliament, Gianfranco Fini and Renato Schifani, and former Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno, prosecutors said.
