A controversial reform of the self-defense law in Italy has taken the final hurdle. The Senate gave the go-ahead on Thursday for the changes, the burglary victims, according to Interior Minister Matteo Salvini give more rights to defend against burglars – even with the weapon.

The opposition criticizes the law, Judges and defense lawyers warn that the reform sends a false message, suggesting that it would always be justified in the future to shoot intruders.

Italian criminal law previously provided for a right to self-defense under certain conditions. For example, it is new that people who have injured burglars from self-defense can no longer be sentenced to compensation.

In addition, it should remain impunity, who has exceeded the limits of self-defense in the “state of serious concern” and reacted excessively to an attack. In the future, there will also be higher penalties for burglary, trespassing and robbery.
