goes After the competent Prosecutor ordered the Landing of rescued refugees from the Board of the German Sea-Watch, Italy's Minister of the interior, but on a collision course.
His Video on Facebook is the announcement of a personal battle. With the index finger, Matteo Salvini pointing into the camera and speaks with the challenging face of the man he calls only "il Dottore Patronaggio" (the doctor Patronaggio). The rhetorical question of the Minister of the interior:
"Are you the Prosecutor who has taken the responsibility, the Landing of those immigrants to be arranged?"
and then the threat to move: He was going to, so Salvini, against anyone to proceed to the "aid on illegal immigration to Italy" bar. According to Salvini's Luigi Patronaggio, the chief of state has made a lawyer in Agrigento, Sicily, one such aid is guilty. Because Patronaggio has instructed the 47 men on Board the German Sea-Watch in Lampedusa to Land.
Salvini learns decision in Live TV
"This landing is an incentive for illegal immigration."
Salvini takes note of the decision of the 61-year-old state Prosecutor, the Detention of people on Board to prevent, as a personal Affront. In any case, it is a renewed setback for the Italian Minister of the interior in its policy, to lock all Italian ports for the rescue of ships with refugees and migrants on Board. This time, the sense of shame was Salvini particularly large, because he heard of the Landing of the Rescued live in a television talk show and proclaimed there, the state attorney Patronaggio prompt his political challengers.
"If this state wants to make a lawyer of the Minister of the interior, then he should stand at the next elections. My consent, and that illegal immigrants are allowed to go from one illegal ship-to country, it will never give up."
Luigi Patronaggio does not respond to the attacks Salvini's. Armando Spataro, however, a long-time member of the Italian high Council of the judiciary, criticized in an interview with the ARD Studio Rome: Salvini's behavior was that of a Minister of the interior in a state of law not worthy of it.
"A Minister of the interior should respect the separation of powers and is not allowed to attack, therefore, a state's attorney, only because this has taken a decision that lies within its jurisdiction, but the Minister did not like. I think all of this is in a democracy, it is not normal."
It is not the first Time that Salvini with Italy's judiciary, and specifically the state's attorney Patronaggio in the migration policy unit to each other. In the past year, the former Anti-Mafia had been initiated by investigators in a case against Salvini, due to deprivation of freedom - after it had instructed refugees on Board the Italian Navy ship Diciotti should not go to the country.

On the weekend in Milan at the rally of the European right-wing parties in the European elections in Italy had promised the interior Minister, his followers, the refugees of the Sea-Watch would never enter Italian soil.
The deepening conflict Salvini's with the justice but also shows a certain degree of irritability of the Lega-leader shortly before the European elections. Because of him, so violently criticized state attorney Patronaggio not left at the weekend for the refugees in the country, but also measures against Sea-launched Watch. The captain of the ship must have today to a hearing to comment on the suspicion of favouring illegal immigration. In addition, the Sea is seized-Watch for the time being.
