Suspect identified over Meloni death threats

 Police have identified a suspect in relation to online death threats directed at Premier Giorgia Meloni and her family, sources said on Wednesday.

The suspect is a 27-year-old unemployed man residing in the Sicilian province of Siracusa, the sources said.

The postal police detected the threats on the premier's official Twitter account.

The threats allegedly regarded the government's decision to abolish the 'citizenship wage' minimum-income benefit for people consider fit for work at the end of next year.

The suspect faces charges of aggravated private violence.

The postal police managed to track him down even though he used an account in the name of a pseudonym to make the threats.

The postal police and the DIGOS security police searched the man's home and his IT devices.
