Tasers to be used in stadiums

The Italian Government passed new laws on stadium security, forcing clubs to pay for policing and authorising tasers.

The new law was passed today with a 164-109 vote, despite clubs protesting that it was an “illegal tax.”

Sides will now be asked to devolve between one and three per cent of the ticket sales per game to pay for extra policing on match days.

An even more controversial element of the law is the authorisation for police to use tasers inside stadiums.

However, the same party that passed the law also demanded the Government “regularly monitor the use of tasers and refer the results to Parliament within a year.”
