After five years Alvin returned home. Friday morning just before 8am arrived at Fiumicino airport in Rome, in the coming hours you will reach the small town of Brianza where he was born and grew up, where his father and two older sisters still live. An extraordinary international cooperation mission returned him to his family. The operation, which saw the SCIP, the police inter-force service, in action, and the Ros, a special operational grouping of the carabinieri, with the collaboration of the Albanian consulate, the Italian Red Cross and the operators of the Red Crescent, made it possible to do so arriving in Italy through a special humanitarian corridor.
The transformation of Alvin's mother, from housewife to foreign fighter
The people who are accompanying you are friends of Dad. You must not be afraid, the words whispered on the phone yesterday morning by Afrim to his recovered child. The Albanian worker last September 25 had managed to reach the camp of Al Hol and to meet the child, but he could not take him away with s. The documents released by the Albanian embassy (Alvin born in Italy but does not have citizenship) were not enough.
The desperate appeal of the pap, relaunched by Le Iene broadcasts and welcomed by the institutions, for days the Lombardy Region building lit up with the word Free Alvin, not fallen on deaf ears. It took weeks to plan and then complete the operation, which was particularly difficult and complicated, as well as the investigation into the foreign fighter Valbona and the kidnapping of the child conducted since 2015 by magistrates Alberto Nobili and Alessandro Gobbis. Finally the turn of the last hours.
In the camp of Al Hol 70 thousand live women and children of Isis fighters. This is the first time a child has left home to reach a European country. In the images filmed in Damascus, Alvin is seen as a bit lame, perhaps undernourished, certainly disoriented, along with the heroes who just snatched him from horror. He has injuries to one foot and one ear, he must be treated, but alive. Now all the other children have to be brought home, says Afrim.
