ROME, December 15. /TASS/. Authoritative Italian journalist and politician Giulietto Chiesa was arrested on Monday in Tallinn, his family told TASS.
Giulietto’s wife, Fiammetta Cucurnia, said he was in Tallinn to take part in a conference and was due to go to Moscow on Tuesday, but was detained in his hotel. “Now, his telephone is out of reach and the only thing we could figure out is that there is some warrant to expel him from the country within 48 hours,” she told TASS.
Giulietto Chiesa is an influential politician and a public figure. He was a member of the European Parliament. He spent many years in Russia and witnessed the collapse of the former Soviet Union and the birth of new Russia. He visits Russian quite frequently and now he is among the few in Europe who openly speaks about what is going on in Ukraine and where the Ukrainian crisis is rooted in. Chiesa organizes conferences and seminars where he condemns the United States’ policy and warns against one-polar world. The latest such conference took place on December 12 at the national parliament and involved international experts, political observers, commentators.
On December 13, Chiesa organized a roundtable meeting within the framework of the Nobel Peace Prize Winner summit in Rome. The meeting was attended by Federica Mogherini, European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.
“Estonia is a member of the European Union. How can it arrest and expel a EU citizen?” said Chiesa’s wife, a journalist by profession.
