The Schengen agreement allows cross-border pursuits up to 30 (or 50?) km inside the neighbouring country, but you also have to announce the other country about the pursuit so that somewhere in this 30 (50) km they will take your place.

I actually took part few years ago in a Schengen exercise between Romania and Hungary... too bad that I'm not allowed to post any pictures or video on the internet (but just for your information: it was great... high speed police chase across the border, special troops + helicopter surveilence etc. )

The driver probably thought he'd be safe in Italy. Not.

30 km? 50 km? what about the opposite case - if Italian police chase someone across the border into Slovenia... they will end up in a third country

Croatia isn't in Schengen so the fugitive would be arrested at the border.

Budapest, October 23 1956.


Come on Buda guys, come on Pest guys,
Students, peasants, workers: the sun will never rise in East again.

Six glorious days and six glorious nights, that's the timespan of our victory
But on the seventh days the Russians arrived with tanks.

The tanks broke our bones, but no one helped us,
The world only observed it,
sitting on the edge of the pit.

My mates are facing the platoon, the first one falls, the second one too.
Our holidays are over burying the honor of the world.


Those that can understand Italian, will understand the rest of the lyrics as well, I only translated the most important parts.

Another similar Italian song is "La primavera di Praga" (Prague spring) by Francesco Guccini, related to 1968 events in Czeckoslovakia.

To have a President of the Republic (Giorgio Napolitano) that agreed the soviet invasion in Hungary saying "it brings the peace" it's pretty ashaming

It was almost 60 years ago. In the west we didn't know everything about the hell that existed in the east. Many our connationals still believed in the socialist utopy.

Back in those years. IMHO we shouldn't judge someone for a juvenile statement, made in a total different sociopolitical background.

Italy is full of (now) 70s and 80s years old politics that disgraced themselves by supporting guerillas, terrorist groups like the Brigade Rosse and similar terrorists from other countries. I don't think they should be "excused", since such statements were not made as some silly teenager comment, but by people on their mid-20s and older, an age where age-related ignorance is no longer tolerated. Or shouldn't be.

I mean: I can excuse some now respectable person who had his days of thinking fascism or stalinism were great - when he/she was like 14 or 16. But not at age 24 or 26. Not those whose political factions planted bombs on trains, banks and schools, even if they were not directly involved.

Many people forget the filthy and disgusting communists always won the plurality in 2 parliamentarian elections in the early 1970s.

I think people in general only woke up to reality when the communists kidnapped and assassinated Aldo Moro in 1978.

I won't justify commies, but Brigate Rosse and other terror groups had always been indipendent and never supported by any party included PCI.
Until Kruscev report in 1956 no one knew about Stalin crimes. And until the 90s foibe killings were kept almost secret by our government for an insane "political correctness" towards YU (that lead to the signature of Osimo agreement, that allowed Tito to have legal ownership of our former lands).

And now this insanity.

Quote:
Six Italian scientists and a government official were found guilty on Monday of multiple manslaughter for underestimating the risks of a killer earthquake in L'Aquila in 2009.

They were sentenced to six years in jail in a watershed ruling in a case that has provoked outrage in the international science community.

The experts were also ordered to pay more than nine million euros ($11.7 million) in damages to survivors and inhabitants. Under the Italian justice system, the seven will remain free men until they have exhausted two chances to appeal the verdict.

Full story; http://www.ndtv.com/article/world/si...-lateststories

What the **** is wrong with the Italian political and justice system? Are you kidding me?

Most of the country's reaction was "WTF?". But there is a widespread anti-scientific culture (which began in the fascist years, but is somehow related with Catholic beliefs) which leads some less educated people -a lot of them- to being unable to accept facts as they are: there must always be a guilty responsible for any shit that happens (and, of course, he must be someone different than me).

The consequences are that anytime you speak about safety and prevention (e.g. building quake-resistant houses) a lot of people laughs and just hopes things will be fine, then when disaster strucks everyone cries for help and wants to hang the guilty scientist...

Little by little we're getting away from this idiocy, but it's gonna take a long time.


I think that in this case the Judge has gone crazy (and he's not the only one), and this trial will go through a huge revision...

He's the worst president that this county had since it's a Republic. Anyway he said that in those years, but he changed mind taking back his words only in 2006...let's say it was more obligated to take back was he said due his position of president than to take it back cause he believes it for real. He never left his commie belief....

Why, in the present not? Just few weeks ago Marco Rizzo said "If I were a worker I would prefere North Korea than South Korea" and is well know his admiration for Kim Jong II.

If he loves NK why he didn't move there?
BTW, I recently had a discussion with a law student who advocated theories like:
- Fascism was good
- democracy is bad because allow every stupid to express himself
- everybody who don't like Berlusconi is a commie
- death penality is right
- EU is evil
- immigration must be banned because we're superior
And he also said he is catholic
How should we deal with those arguments?
