CAPOTRENO PRETENDE SESSO DA DONNA SENZA BIGLIETTO
BOLOGNA  - Un capotreno di 53 anni, di origine campana ma residente a Milano, è stato denunciato dalla Polfer per aver preteso una prestazione sessuale da una passeggera scoperta a viaggiare su un treno senza biglietto. L'uomo è stato sospeso in via cautelativa da Trenitalia. Il fatto è successo lo scorso 21 agosto. La donna, una ragazza nigeriana di 27 anni regolare in Italia, stava viaggiando sul convoglio 9417, un Eurostar Milano-Lecce, quando nella tarda mattinata - transitando nella zona di Reggio Emilia - è incappata nel controllo del biglietto. Il dipendente di Trenitalia, quando ha capito che la giovane non aveva il tagliando, ha spiegato alla donna che se voleva evitare le conseguenze del mancato pagamento del biglietto poteva appartarsi con lui per una prestazione sessuale. Prestazione effettivamente consumata poco dopo - sempre stando al racconto della donna - in un locale appartato in uno scomparto nella parte posteriore del convoglio. 

Dopo aver subito l'abuso però la donna ha subito avvisato il compagno (che viaggiava sullo stesso treno, ma separato da lei) che a sua volta ha chiamato con il telefono cellulare il 113. A quel punto - il treno era già a ridosso della stazione ferroviaria di Bologna - sono intervenuti gli uomini della Polfer del capoluogo emiliano. I poliziotti hanno raccolto i racconti di entrambi. 

Lui ha negato ogni addebito, lei invece ha fornito particolari precisi della vicenda. Alla fine la polizia ferroviaria ha denunciato l'uomo all'autorità giudiziaria per concussione sessuale. Sulla vicenda erano subito intervenute, il giorno dopo, le Ferrovie dello Stato, con una nota in cui spiegavano che il Gruppo, informato dell'episodio di "presunto tentativo di molestie sessuali" aveva "immediatamente avviato i necessari accertamenti per chiarire la dinamica dei fatti. Qualora fosse accertata la responsabilità del dipendente saranno adottati i provvedimenti disciplinari previsti". L'uomo è stato effettivamente sospeso in via cautelare per 60 giorni. In attesa che si completi l'accertamento dei fatti Trenitalia, alla luce degli elementi acquisiti, ha ritenuto opportuno applicare il provvedimento.


Ladies and gentlemen;

The story as  told in the Italian dailies has a lot of omissions  which anyone  in the community or some of us working with  the immigration  and immigrants will easily notice. However, the investigations are for the police ,who  are  believed to be  better prepared for the job.

I explain in brief  just only two   major dynamics in this sort of case (if we  may call it a case).

 

1.First; some of the immigrant girls especially Nigerians, Rumanians, Ukraine  and south American who are clandestine  or not regular with immigration  documents caught without a valid travelling ticket by the TRAIN ITALIA CONTROLLERS   are often  threatened  and intimidated  with  handing them over to the police  at the next stop if the they do not have sex in the train with the train  operators and sometimes with their  friends also. I have over heard at my desk or during colloquium   some people who painfully accepted to 'play the game' instead of finding themselves in their countries just for an unpaid  train ticket!!!!!

 

2.Second; there are many girls  still from most of the countries  I named above  who deliberately  travel without tickets  because they have their TRAINITALIA men on board. These  ladies are mostly prostitutes going or returning  from  'work' (I dare not say it is not  work or I might run the risk of loosing any election in the community even to a Russian), These train men give them the correct time  they have to take the train and find them. I have also learnt of the train men organizing their friends to  board the train for a 'discounted show' and in turn these girls also indicate  as many people as they like that may not pay the train  fare for that trip…............'flying  (travelling) to her patronage'; I do not mean to blaspheme.

 

You can see it  is a business or game some  train  operators and some  hustlers (prostitutes)  play.

My brother  me I dey pay my ticket every time ooo.

Greetings to all,
Any time stories of these bad things happening to some Nigerians abroad featured, it pains every meaningful or rational Nigerian everywhere. To me, it is always a constant reminder of the failures of the people who claim to be ruling Nigeria in recent history. The second thing I personally attribute some of these maladies to, is the moral decay of the country. A situation where, normal ways through which human beings earn their living in all the progressing countries--have been thrown over-board. If one talks or writes about how he/she is following up life in normal sequences, people will use all these their gabages to try to eclipse the write-ups or talks; instead, they will be glorifying and upholding criminality and sense of animalism. Our hearts go for all the Nigerians who genuinely suffer abuses they did nothing to attract to themselves.

On the second observation, I must ask, in the case of the woman who gave sex to the train operator in Italy, should that be a surprise? Some times, let us be objective! Even in Nigerian in the old days: in the villages, if someone keeps trashing rules of communities and instituting his/her own rules, that person should expect some of all these vile sounding actions that follow those violations. When one knowingly does things that exposes that person to some dangers--when the danger occurs--I wonder why it should be surprising to any rational person or people. If someone decides to start wangling his/her ways to the outside of Nigeria: that person must have already made the calculation that there will be prizes to pay for them.

What happened to the Nigerian girl who rode on the train in Italy is comparable to the Americans who accepted to help 419ers carry-over and bank dubious monies here in America-- and in the process, the Americans got ripped-off; do such Americans deserve sympathy of good people? From me, the answer is hell no!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!! As long as they (the Americans) knew that what they were embarking on was or were criminal enterprises, they should realize that when one starts eating with the devil--he/she must either use a long spoon or be ready to be dealt with by the devil in any form the devil chooses at any time.

The Italian train operator is being charged in order to maintain Italian decent laws and Italian image--how does the woman or Nigerian girl who entered a train without paying and making sure that she played by the rules of entering the train, now try to go to the law--when she herself is a criminal? The train is perhaps being ran with tax-payer's money: riders supposed to pay for their ride, she decides to use the train probably to go and do her own job (whatever that may be), she ought to pay the fare for the ride--not to even pay the train operator with anything. The train operator is being paid salary. Italy is not Nigeria where most people take themselves to be part of government treasury (stealing government monies and keeping illegally) --the train operator should not be corrupted by the Nigerian girl. Both of them need to be punished by the Italian government-- they are criminals. Until we start telling them as they are--things will remain as they are. Stay in Nigerian if you do not have the means to function lawfully in another country. If you decide to risk your chances--be prepared to pay the prizes adventurism attracts--the good and the bad ones.

Hi Jerry,
You are correct in your analysis of the second dynamics of that offense .
I am afraid you were silence on what I called the first dynamics of the behavior or offense. What do you say to that?
That is rape, exploitation and great violation of many rights.

Mi chiedo: perchè la signora ha accettato di consumare un rapporto sessuale con quel porco? Non poteva far intervenire il suo compagno immediatamente e se anche non fosse stato possibile perchè non si è rivolta a qualcuno dei passeggeri? Affermo questo perchè secondo me la notizia è incompleta, manca qualche particolare.

Hello Jerry,

It has really been a long time. The good thing however is that I keep tab of all contributions. Time has become such a scarce commodity for me. About the issue at stake, one thing is clear. For reasons that I don't seem to understand, many Nigerians living in Rome don't buy regular tickets. The highest contributing factor is the fact that the society itself is lazy in enforcement of those laws. You can be on the train for one month without meeting these controllers and then when you meet them, they might just overlook it, tell you to go down at the next stop and in rare situations, call the police. It is just our idea of escaping from what can be escaped. It is not a good testimony.

About the Nigerian girl, she has herself to blame. You can risk to enter the regional trains or intercity trains without a ticket and it will be somehow excussed. But Eurostar was until recently the fastest train in Europe. It is a potshe kind of train that is preferred sometime to airplane. For one to enter Eurostar without a ticket is an extreme gambling and disregard for all that is decent. Granted that she had a partner in the train, the question is, why was she not seating with who ever it was. They just planned a rip off because a decent woman would not succumb just because of ticket,not to talk of when the news clearly stated that the said lady is a legal resident.

Ciao my brother and enjoy. Just know that we like to export our lawlessness to wherever we are. I am not proud of it but we must stand up to the truth even if it bruises our ego.

@Jerry: You are alway great in your analysis but I have already pointed out the point you were silence on I.e the intimidated ones...
___________
@anonymous: Ho lo stesso perplessità. Ci sono molti cose che non quadrano bene.
------------------------------
@Ikenna: You analysis as someone in the community is real and authentic 'unfortunately'.
Well, wetin man go do?
Remember I once said Nigerians can never become Nicaraguans; Norwegians, nor Namibians etc. They will always remain Nigerians, however there is hope for a more orderly future

Greetings to all,
It is unfortunate reading the article or rather the news of "Sex in Trainitalia" as a Nigerian and as a person opposed to any institutional injustice or exploitation.

However before making categorical statements, there are still need to clarify some questions:
Did the Nigerian girl in question, consent to having sex with the Italian train operator at any given point in time?
Is job specification of Italian train operator include using sex as a punishment for non holders of train ticket?
Did he have sex with all the non holders of ticket in that train that are women?
Is the Nigerian girl the only girl ever caught in Italian train without ticket?
What is the point of Italian law in connetion to those not having valid ticket for travel?
I doubt that the girl gave her consent, if not we could have not heard of the incidence and Italian Police could not have arrested the train operator and the subsequent suspension from his job is a sign that he has been suspected of commiting criminal offence.

Having raised these mind disturbing questions, may I disagree totally with those who try to connect any abuse, rape or exploitation of Nigerians to bad Nigerian government. May I state categorically that the news as depicted is a Clear Rape of a Nigerian Girl. It will be shameful for Italian Government to condone rape by not bring the man to Justice. Italy is a memeber of EU and therefor a signatory to EU convention on Human RIghts. The Girl was raped because the man thinks he can rape a black and a Nigerian with little or no consequence . He will not try it with Italian Lady even if she is a harlot, or american or any other citizen of weestern country. Let us not forget that Italian mafians are those responsible for the trafiicking of Nigerian Ladies. When I was working some years ago during holidays in Italy, an Italian man once asked me how much he can buy a Nigerian lady from Nigeria becuase he just bought one from Romania for prostitution? That is how low some Italians think of Nigerians.

It is true the Nigerian girl committed offence by not holding a valid ticket. She deserves maximum punishment from Italian point of law for those not holding ticket but NOT RAPE. Rape of any person is a serious Crime. Being a prostitute or "working Girl" is not an invitation for rape. I would be glad to see Nigerian reacting against such treatment that comes in different forms. If it is proven the man should be sent to prison for sex offences and made to sign sex offenders register if such thing exists in Italy.

Rape is Rape. Let us call a spade a spade. I am back my work for the day
