Murder of Mariottini, appeal sentence repeated: Désirée left to die to protect the place from drug trafficking

They were Mamadou Race e Youssef Saliaaccording to the Assize Court of Rome, to sexual abuse Desiree Mariottini, the 16-year-old drug addict, raped and killed on October 18 in a building illegally occupied by drug traffickers, in the San Lorenzo district of Rome. According to the appeal judges, in addition to Salia and Gara, Alinno Chima also drugged her. The latter, as well as Brian Minteh, also did not call for help that could have saved the young girl from Cisterna di Latina, to prevent the arrival of ambulances and the police from revealing their whereabouts. drug traffic. This, in summary, emerges from the 80 pages of the reasons for the sentence with which the Assize Court of Appeal, in the second trial requested by the Supreme Court, sentenced Gara Mamadou to 22 years, Alinno Chima to 26 years and Brian Minteh at 18 years old. The same Supreme Court had definitively sentenced Yousef Salia to life imprisonment.

It is “now definitively and irrevocably established – we read in the sentence – that Gara participated, with Salia and Alinno, in the repeated transfer of narcotic and psychotropic substances to the minor Désirée Mariottini who, on the morning of October 18, 2018, is presented in the building in via dei Lucani, in a state of obvious abstinence, desperately looking for drugs, in exchange for which, having no money, she was even ready to offer oral sexual services. As for the narcotic substances consumed by the minor – write the judges -, as proven by the convictions of the courts of first and second instance, which have become irrevocable on this point, they were transferred to her by Salia (heroin and methadone), by Alinno (Crack ) and Gara (benzodiazepines)”. Salia’s sentence crystallized and he faced life imprisonment, as requested by the general prosecutor’s office, while Gara Mamadou was also sentenced to 22 years in prison. The risk of overdose (and subsequent death) for Dersirée was “predictable”. This can be read in the reasons for the Appeal bis sentence.

According to the court, the accused, by distributing benzodiazepine pills, agreed to run “a risk considered all the greater, and yet carelessly ignored by Gara, who was exclusively interested in sexually abusing” the child of 16 years old. old “in anticipation of the minor’s progressive and worsening state of ill-being” which he could not fail to recognize and which he “culpably ignored”. It is for this reason that the Assize Court found him guilty of the crime of murder following another crime. Gara would have given the drugs to the young girl, he would have abused her, but “it must be ruled out that the accused could be held responsible, as an accomplice, for the crime of aggravated intentional homicide” in the sense that contrary to some co- the accused, after leaving the premises occupied in San Lorenzo, did not participate in the phases in which he was prevented “from the intervention of medical aid which would have avoided the death of the minor”.

One fault, however, that of not having called for help, attributed by the appeal judges to Minteh and Alinno who, although they “recognize their non-involvement in the acts of sexual violence”, must attribute these “reprehensible, malicious”. acts of omission and obstacles to the intervention of emergency services” in order to conceal their drug trafficking activity. Indeed, the 16-year-old girl, after the sexual violence, died of an overdose and of starvation a few hours after the rape. Minteh and Alinno, although they did not participate in the sexual violence, did not call for help “in order to avoid the harmful consequences that could have resulted from the discovery of the drug trafficking activities carried out in these places”.
