The case of a migrant defendant who appeared in court in Naples, Italy, without a shirt and barefoot has sparked a controversy. The migrant was given a shirt to cover up and a pair of shoes over an hour after the beginning of the hearing.
The young Nigerian man was on trial on Friday, June 7, for resisting a public officer and causing injury and damage. The defendant had allegedly kicked a number of policemen at the local immigration office. It took eleven officers to get him under control, investigators said.
