The Italian Senate has voted to lift the immunity from prosecution previously enjoyed by right-wing leader Matteo Salvini. It paves the way for possible kidnap charges against the former deputy Prime Minister for refusing to allow 164 migrants to disembark a ship in Sicily

It’s the third case involving a rescue ship standoff in which Italian prosecutors have sought kidnapping charges against Salvini. During his 14 months as interior minister, he repeatedly denied ships carrying rescued migrants access to Italian ports.
