Request: We received a court order ruling for the removal of a Facebook post. The post criticized the President of the Court of Appeal of Palermo for rejecting a request to have Mr. Berlusconi as a witness in the trial of a politician accused of having mafia affiliations.
Outcome: The Postal and Communications Police provided Google with an amended copy of the order with a handwritten statement from the judge asking the Court Order to be served on Google Inc. We removed the Facebook URL from google.it.
