The Italian senate has voted to lift Matteo Salvini’s immunity from prosecution, clearing the way for possible charges against the far-right former interior minister for refusing to allow 164 migrants to get off a ship in Sicily.

In February the senate cleared Salvini to face possible charges for refusing a landing berth a year ago to an Italian coastguard vessel that had picked up 141 migrants rescued by two other boats.

In another case that went to the senate while he was still serving as the interior minister, Salvini’s party voted not to lift his immunity, protecting him from prosecution for not allowing 190 migrants off another coastguard ship in August 2018.
