Rome - They were supposed to have adequate security measures in place for those working in areas such as Libya. Measures that seems were lacking. On that base, Rome prosecutors have issued three conviction requests and one indictment, and have upheld a plea-bargaining proposal from one manager of the construction firm Bonatti.

The event relates to the kidnapping of four Italian technicians in Libya, in July 2015. It ended tragically on March 3 of the following year, with the death of Salvatore Failla and Fausto Piano (the other two, Filippo Calcagno and Gino Pollicardo, pictured above, managed to free themselves).

Three Libyan citizens, all belonging to ISIS, were arrested in Tripoli on March 16. They are responsible for carrying out the kidnapping, which they said during their admission of guilt was done to finance the terrorist organization.
