INDIA: Bosusco released; We worked to ensure his safety, says Terzi

“To ensure, first and foremost, the safety of our co-nationals”, was how Minister Giulio Terzi commented on his “satisfaction” at the news of the release of Paolo Bosusco, the Italian guide abducted on 14 March in the Indian State of Orissa while accompanying Claudio Colangelo on a trekking tour, who was released on 25 March.


“Our efforts to secure the release of others being held hostage in other countries continue with the same determination. Our thoughts are with the families and wives of Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone . We share the anguish of these hours. The foreign ministry is at their side and continues in its attempts to resolve the situation in a positive manner, and all other cases still open”.


“I’m finally free, and I’m fine. I bear no resentment for my abductors”, Bosusco was quoted as saying upon his arrival in Bhubaneswar. “I’ll be back in Italy soon”, he then said in a moving phone call with his father Azelio, who said he was “overcome emotionaly but much calmer now”.
