On May 2, 2020, Dario Musso, forty years old Sicilian from Ravanusa – Sicily, came out of the houses where everyone was forced by quarantine, going through the streets of his town to say with the megaphone what all the Italians and all the individuals of the world should have done: to point out to the community in which he lives, to wake up, to observe, to reflect and react to the truth, that there is NO pandemic, to take off the masks, to start again to open shops, to enter the clubs, to join in the true awareness, to join someone who makes others awaken.
Mr. Musso is later stopped and blocked on the street by carabinieri patrols, municipal police and doctors. Before getting out of the car he has the lucidity to create a video and send it to the social networks in which he declares with a quick analysis, lucid and even balanced for the difficult moments he was experiencing, that his actions were bothering certain people, that the issues addressed by him had created alarm, Mr. Musso invites to observe the police, talking about those who stopped him says that they are people who have practically understood nothing in the world, “practically are those brothers of mine who are using the system to go against me, they are people who do not understand certain things”. Dario Musso is lucid and even manages to have a reasoned brotherhood movement towards people who are forcing him to a compulsory health treatment for pretentious reasons. Mr. Musso is NOT crazy or unbalanced as they tried to make him appear.
Shortly afterwards, in fact, it is seen that Mr. Musso, not putting up any resistance, is immobilized by the police thrown to the ground and sedated by medical personnel who in a slippery way had already approached from behind Mr. Musso. It is not clear whether the sedation took place before Dario Musso was thrown to the ground, in any case the way in which the medical staff and law enforcement agencies was acting was extremely violent and slippery. From the videos of people in the vicinity you can clearly see all this, you can clearly see the violence exerted on Mr. Musso despite the fact that he could show that he was completely reasonable and able to talk without there being any reason for the obligatory medical treatment imposed on him.
Whether or not one agrees with the messages that Dario Musso has stated, the fact remains that he has done exactly what the Italian Constitution allows him to do under Article 21:
“Everyone has the right to express his thoughts freely by word, writing and any other means of dissemination.”
The way in which the police intervened on behalf of the mayor is to be highlighted as completely disrespectful of fundamental human rights and the Italian constitutional charter.
The checks on compulsory health treatments must be accompanied by initiatives aimed at ensuring the consent and participation of those who are obliged to do so. There was absolutely no such search for consent for Mr. Musso because the TSO [compulsory health treatment] was directly ordered by the mayor who did not ascertain what was happening, so much so that he was not physically present in that place. However, they decided to bypass this phase by submitting him to the TSO anyway and taking him to the hospital. To maintain this measure also requires validation by the judge, which must take place within 48 hours. At the moment when Mr. Musso was stopped and taken to the hospital the judge had not yet validated the measure.
In addition, the family members tried in every way to establish contact with him, contact which was in fact denied until the fourth day of immobilisation in hospital. On the fourth day Mr. Musso was finally allowed to answer the phone call, showing an evident state of slowdown in his ability to speak and react, evidently treated with substances that severely attacked him in his ability to react. Mr. Musso was tied and immobilized hands and feet for 5 days, he remained conscious during all this time.
