PM in Warsaw for Lazio fans

The Italian Prime Minister is flying to Warsaw, as 22 Lazio fans are still being held almost a week on from a Europa League game.

There were 149 Biancocelesti supporters arrested before last Thursday’s Europa League match between Lazio and Legia Warsaw, but 137 were released over the next few days after paying fines.

Another 22 Italian citizens have been in Warsaw cells for almost a week now and tomorrow Italy’s PM Enrico Letta will fly to Poland for talks on their situation.

Reports continue to emerge that the fans were led down a blind alley by police, who had been supposed to accompany them to the stadium, arrested, searched and handcuffed.

MP Carlo Fidanza has already visited the Lazio ultras in Warsaw and claimed 11 had been convicted of resisting arrest after signing a confession that was written in Polish.

A group of fans have raised the bail money so that the others can be released as soon as possible.
