"The Hyenas" committed for trial for defamation of the Aero Club Torino



Following a lawsuit brought by the Aero Club Torino, the Tribunal of Turin has indicted the "hyena" Luigi Pelazza for libel regarding an "Italia 1" television broadcast in March 2012, during which it was affirmed, among other things, that the Aero Club of Italy (a public company) had used public funds to pay off a debt of the Torino Aero Club (a private company) towards the FAI, relating to the organization of the World Air Games in 2009.

At the conclusion of the investigation, the prosecutor and the investigating magistrate, having ascertained the falsity of the affirmation and considering it to be seriously defamatory, in addition to the aforementioned indictment of the conductor, also ordered the seizure of the film from the Mediaset-Italy 1 offices and the removal of the video from the archive of RTI-Mediaset.
