Ercole case, Florence Court of Appeals, 22 February 2001
Court of Appeals at Florence

In the Ercole case in 2000, Italy’s Tribunal of Livorno tried and sentenced a former paratrooper to 18 months’ suspended imprisonment for abusing his authority during his participation in a multinational peacekeeping operation in Somalia and, pending the outcome of connected civil proceedings, made him provisionally liable to the payment of 30,000,000 Italian lire to a Somali citizen who had been tortured. In 2001, the Court of Appeals at Florence confirmed the judgement in this part.
