(ANSA) – FUCECCHIO (FLORENCE), 16 SEP – A 66-year-old woman, of Georgian nationality, was arrested by the carabinieri at Malpensa airport (Varese), on her return to Italy, in execution of a precautionary detention measure accused of having mistreated a 91-year-old woman of whom she was the caregiver for months. The disputed facts, for which the 66-year-old was also accused of aggravated injuries, would have occurred in the last year in Fucecchio, where the 91-year-old lives, before the suspect, who had been in Italy for 14 years, was fired from her family and returned to Georgia for a few weeks.
According to the reconstructions of the military, also supported by filming carried out with hidden cameras, the caregiver would have used to resort to mistreatment and harassment of the person cared for, even going so far as to cause her tibia fracture. With the elderly woman’s family, the woman would justify herself by talking about domestic accidents. Her relatives, however, would have become suspicious asking for the intervention of the police. The prosecutor of Florence has opened an investigation while the investigations were conducted by the carabinieri of the investigative nucleus of Florence and of the Fucecchio station. The arrested caregiver, who returned to Italy on the evening of September 14, is now in prison in Milan. (HANDLE).
