    Italian Court Orders Public Safety Campaign

    Must Begin by July 16;
    Government Will Not Appeal Decision

    January 16, 2019

    In a victory for advocates of precaution, an Italian court has ordered the government to launch a campaign to advise the public of the health risks from mobile and cordless phones.

    The information campaign must begin by July 16.

    The court in Rome reached its decision last November, but the announcement was only made yesterday. SNIP

    Today, the government announced that it would not appeal the ruling, Stefano Bertone  told Microwave News. Bertone is with the law firm of Ambrosio and Commodo in Turin, and is helping represent a citizens group called APPLE, which sued to force the government to act. APPLE is an acronym for the Association for the Prevention of and Fight Against Electrosmog.
