He was found with a knife in his hand by the Ferrara police – according to what was reconstructed during the investigation – inside the cellar of the home of his ex-companion Atika Gharib, who was killed by Chamekh himself in September 2019. From that discovery was born the criminal proceedings that brought Chameckh to trial for illegal carrying of a weapon.
An episode just before the barbaric murder of Atika, whose body was found charred in a farmhouse in Castello d’Argile at the beginning of September 2019, punished by her ex for sending him away. For ending their relationship. In light of what happened, therefore, the discovery of him in the cellar with a knife has the flavor of a premonition that was not fully understood, considering that Atika, who was killed at the age of 32, had already sent Chamekh away from home. She had broken off that sick relationship when she realized that he had also dared to molest one of her daughters.
Yesterday at the trial for the illegal carrying of a knife, one of the policemen testified that that day they found the Moroccan hidden in the cellar, armed and who knows what objective already in mind.
At the time, his ex-partner had already reported him for stalking. While last December the Assize Court of Appeal of Bologna confirmed the life sentence for the 43-year-old Moroccan, finding him guilty of the murder of his ex-partner.CopyAMP code.
