    (ANSAmed) - Rome, May 16 - Some 24 far-rightists have been placed under investigation for a protest against a Roma family moving into their new council house in a Rome suburb earlier this month, judicial sources said.

    The militants from the neo-Fascist CasaPound and the far-right Forza Nuova (FN) movements led violent protests against the family in Casal Bruciato on Rome's eastern outskirts last week.

    Another 16 people, including antifascist and anticapitalist 'antagonists' and members of a pro-housing movement, have been placed under investigation for an unauthorised march in Casal Bruciato on May 8.

    Also on Thursday, 41 far-rightists were placed under investigation for violent protests against a number of Roma families moving into a reception centre in the Rome suburb of Torre Maura on April 2.

    The militants, all members of CasaPound and FN, are accused of instigation to race hatred, private violence, threats, seditious assembly and apology of Fascism. (ANSAmed).
