    > ROME – Italian senators voted on Wednesday to lift immunity for far-right leader Matteo Salvini, opening the way for a potentially career-ending trial over accusations that he illegally detained migrants at sea last year.

    > "The Senate was asked a precise question. Did minister Salvini act in the national interest? Yes or No? For us it is 'No'. This was election campaigning using 100 people aboard an Italian ship," said leftist politician Anna Ascani.

    > The Gregoretti investigation echoes another case from earlier last year when magistrates sought to try Salvini over his decision to keep 150 migrants aboard a coastguard ship for five days in August 2018.
