NIGERIAN POLICE IN ITALY FROM NEXT WEEK


Italy and Nigeria join forces
Joint patrols in Italy to combat illegal immigration
(ANSA) - Rome, February 17 - Italy and Nigeria on Tuesday agreed to carry out joint patrols to combat human trafficking and illegal immigration.

The agreement was part of a bilateral accord signed in Abuja by Italy's national police chief, Antonio Manganelli, and Nigerian police top brass.

The accord follows a similar one Italy recently signed with Tunisia to intensify efforts against illegal immigration and human trafficking, which is controlled mainly by organized crime. A pilot project for joint Italian-Nigerian patrols in Italy will be coordinated by Interpol for a one-year period and will see the patrols employed not only in border, airport and port duties in Italy, but also in cities where there is a significant Nigerian community.

''I am very pleased with this accord which represents a step forward in combating illegal immigration and human trafficking,'' Italian Interior Minister Roberto Maroni said in a statement.

Speaking in the Nigerian capital, Manganelli said that ''evidence shows that one out of three crimes in Italy is committed by an illegal alien and in some parts of northern Italy the ratio is two out of three''.

''With this accord we intend to achieve our goal of controlling illegal immigration and human trafficking through greater international collaboration,'' he added.

Tuesday's accord came a week after Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini visited Nigeria and invited it to attend one of the outreach sessions at next July's G8 summit in Sardinia, hosted by Italy as G8 president for 2009.

During his visit Frattini announced that Italy will give Nigeria two boats to patrol the Niger Delta.

The boats, which will be manned by local forces, will be used to help prevent attacks on Western oil interests in the area including those of Italian fuels group ENI.

Anti-government militia have declared an 'oil war' in the Delta.

Sicurezza, Manganelli a Modena: 'la ricetta è quella partecipata'
Inserito il 20-02-2009 ~ 17:00 da Redazione

Modena - ''La sicurezza partecipata è l'unica ricetta possibile oggi, io la chiamo sicurezza civica''. A dirlo è stato il capo della Polizia, Antonio Manganelli, durante un convegno a Modena sui sistemi di videosorveglianza. ''L'obiettivo della tranquillità sociale - ha spiegato - si può realizzare attraverso la partecipazione del cittadino allo svolgersi della vita sociale. Dobbiamo cercare di fare squadra''.


Manganelli ha sottolineato la necessità di fare squadra tra le varie forze dell'ordine ''nel rispetto ciascuna dei propri ruoli'', mentre non ha mai citato la parola 'ronde' la cui introduzione è prevista nel decreto legge anti-stupri in discussione al Consiglio dei ministri, parlando al contrario di collaborazione con ''associazioni di categoria, di volontariato".
"Pensiamo - ha aggiunto - al campo dell'antiracket'', che da tempo ''viene affrontato in modo forte e deciso dalle associazioni per la lotta contro il racket''.
Infine, sempre riferendosi alla lotta al 'pizzo': ''Il commerciante da solo ha paura, ma quello che si associa, in virtù della collaborazione con il parternariato tra forze di Polizia e associazioni, è più forte''.

Dalla prossima settimana accanto ai poliziotti italiani ci sarà una rappresentanza di colleghi nigeriani, oltre a quelli tunisini, già arrivati in Italia, per svolgere compiti legati all'identificazione dei clandestini. In più, da metà marzo dovrebbe cominciare il pattugliamento delle coste libiche. Ha annunciato Manganelli, nella sua relazione alla Fondazione Marco Biagi.
''L'altro ieri sono stato in Nigeria a completare un accordo importante - ha spiegato - Dalla prossima settimana ci saranno poliziotti nigeriani in Italia che favoriranno l'identificazione, la regolarizzazione o il trasferimento in patria degli irregolari''. Altri dalla Tunisia, ha aggiunto, sono già arrivati per effetto di un accordo simile completato due settimane fa. Inoltre, ha continuato Manganelli, ''speriamo dalla metà di marzo di far partire un pattugliamento misto sottocosta, con la Libia''.

Another goo opportuniy for nigeria police to start collecting bribes in euros.if it is on prostitution is a welcome idea,but on the issue of nigeria illegal immigrants in i think the federal government has every right to think it twice before going into that kind of agreement,because most nigerians that are leaving the country are force to do so in most cases the economica and politica situation in nigeria we al know.unemployment
in the country is so high that parents even sale their only hard earn properties to send their graduates children abroad to buy generators and other essential basic amenities which the governmenthas failed to give to the people.we have enough arm robbers in nigeria by sending illegal migrants back to nigeria will only add more injure to many nigerian families at home.we wonder what the nigeria embassy will do about the collection of 500euros from ths same illegal immigrants for the renew of their nigerian passports.we have enough back home to resolve,particularly the human traffickers that have most of this nigerin police in their payroll in benin city,intl airports italian corrupt workers in the italian embassy in lagos.i think nigeria should learn from the chinese government decision regarding the mass deportation of illegal chinese workers in europe.
