MEP from the Italian right party North League (Lega Nord) Gianluca Buonanno was fined on $ 3,000 and suspended from work in parliament for 10 days for his appearance in a T-shirt with the image of Angela Merkel depicted as Adolf Hitler, Tyzhden reported.
In early October, speaking from the tribune of the European Parliament during the debate on the fate of Volkswagen company, MEP with the words "Did Mrs. Merkel know about what is happening in the company?" tore off his sweater under which was the shirt with the image of German Chancellor with short black mustache.
Later, the deputy again made comparisons when he came to TV debate with Angela Merkel wearing false mustache and raising his hand in a Nazi salute.
"Three thousand dollars fine and suspension for ten days. That is German democracy," the deputy wrote on his page in Facebook.
Noteworthy, it is not a first scandalous appearance of MEPs from Italian Lega Nord. On September 16 party members came to the European Parliament meeting wearing T-shirts with printed message “No sanctions against Russia” [it. No sanzioni alla Russia - ed.], nv.ua reported.
And Gianluca Buonanno supported the statement of his party fellows with a clear nonverbal image.
