US Soldier Mario Lozano Needs Assistance
A judge in Italy ruled in February that US soldier Mario Lozano will stand trial over the death of Italian secret agent Nicola Calipari (pictured below). Calipari was killed after he charged US soldiers at a check point in Baghdad during his rescue of communist Giuliana Sgrena.
Calipari who was a member of the SISMI police force and gave his life rescuing declared Italian antiwar communist Giuliana Sgrena.
** Pundits My *ss blogged a thorough account on what happened that fateful night in March 2005.
Now Specialist Mario Lozano needs help:
Several prestigious civilian attorneys have recently met and conferred with Spc Lozano. The process of building a legal defense team of civilian and military lawyers is underway. A team that can successfully exonerate Spc Lozano in Italian Court, based on evidence, and jurisdiction, is expected to be up and running by next week. But Spc Lozano is a soldier, not a man of means. The civilian defense costs even with pro bono services by some attorneys will be expensive. ** The Specialist Lozano Defense Fund ** has begun collecting for his defense. Any help for this American Soldier in trouble would be appreciated.
Please Help Out Specialist Lozano if you can.
I just did.
