Italian Police have forced an elderly Hotel owner in Ficarolo (Rovigo) to house and provide for fifteen African illegal Immigrants on his property against his will. The footage, released by the Italian news outlet Servizio Repubblico, documents the desperate attempts of Luigi Fogli as he blocks his door to protect his Hotel.
Fugli, who has been in charge of the hotel since 1972, clings onto the door frame and shouts that “the government does not own this place” and that he might end up in the hospital from all the stress.
His daughter tells the police that they are responsible for the damage the migrants will cause and that they will be accountable should her father be hospitalized due to excessive stress or refugee violence.
Their efforts to keep out the police and migrants remain futile.
