The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Enzo Moavero Milanesi, confirms that the Supreme Court of Thailand has acquitted Denis Cavatassi, an Italian citizen detained in Thailand since 2011 and sentenced to death in 2016.
“The good news of the important acquittal sentence handed down by the Thai Supreme Court this morning will enable Denis Cavatassi to return to Italy and embrace his family. Italians in trouble abroad must know that they can always count of an effective assistance and help from the Foreign Ministry. No one will ever be left alone despite the inevitable confidentiality made necessary by the sensitivity of many situations,” said Minister Moavero.
The complex case involving Denis Cavatassi was constantly followed since the very beginning by the Italian Embassy in Bangkok which, in close cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, provided assistance to the Italian citizen while continuously dialoguing with the competent Thai Authorities.
