The decision gives magistrates the go-ahead to press charges over his decision to keep more than 100 migrants aboard a coastguard ship for six days last July

The decision gives magistrates in Sicily the go-ahead to press charges over his decision to keep more than 100 migrants aboard a coastguard ship for six days last July as he waited for other European Union states to agree to take them in.

The ruling coalition of the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement, the centre-left Democratic Party and other small centrist and leftist groups supported lifting his immunity.Aware that the decision looked certain to go against him, Mr Salvini sought to make political capital out of the case, saying he had only been defending national interests.

Earlier this month another tribunal in Sicily recommended that Mr Salvini stand trial over a separate migrant stand-off dating from last August, with parliament expected to decide on this case later in the year. The Gregoretti investigation echoes another case from earlier last year when magistrates sought to try Mr Salvini over his decision to keep 150 migrants aboard a coastguard ship for five days in August 2018.
