He’s been down a very rough road for past decade in winning this. This is good news. Thanks, Laura for the post.

You’re welcome John, this definitely is a good news.

I wrote “sort of” because the fact remains that he was brutally beaten by the Italian police and he has to live with that fact for the rest of his life. And moreover, as you also said, he’s been fighting for his rights for 11 years now.

For those who haven’t heard his story: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4229777.stm
