Italian Air Force hazing case

Eight sergeants in the Italian Air Force are facing trial on hazing charges. The trial has been delayed due to COVID-19 concerns. Three astronauts are on the witness list. Details here. Excerpt (Google translation):

Among the parties called into question also the Ministry of Defense, cited as civilian responsible for failure to supervise the behavior of non-commissioned officers and their behavior that had to be part of the traditional baptism of flight but which instead would have "offended the prestige, honor and dignity of the pupil, using violence and causing multiple bruises." According to [former officer candidate Julia] Schiff's lawyers who filed a civil action, that rite was carried out in a consolidated manner and the superiors did nothing to prevent this from happening.
