Italy Moves Towards Tougher Security Measures

Italy approves new anti-terror measures
…and said it wanted to create a supreme prosecutor for anti-terrorist investigations…
…The measures also make it a crime for the first time to train people in the preparation or use of explosives. Police will be able to detain terrorism suspects for 24 hours without charge rather than 12 hours as now.

Must be an Italian thing ~ a supreme prosecutor? Smacks of Saturday morning cartoons to my ear, but at least they’re doing something.

    It would probably sound even more over the top and ridiculous in Italian: what would that be, il prosecutorissimo?

    il procuratore supremo
    Jeez, I can just hear someone announcing that to a trumpet fanfare.

    To me, it sounds like some kind of food, actually, but then all Italian words do.
