Delays in fighting disinformation, interference - COPASIR

Fight can no longer be put off, also via new laws says Urso

(ANSA) - ROME, AUG 19 - Italy has suffered from "delays" in fighting political disinformation and interference by foreign actors, parliamentary intelligence oversight body COPASIR said Friday.
    There has been, said COPASIR chair Adolfo Urso on its latest report to parliament, a "substantive weakness in interventions to combat disinformation and the various forms of interference (in Italian political life)".
    He said this showed a "clear deficit and delay by our country with regard to commitments, instruments, strategies and measures which have for some time been operational in a major way in the international context".
    In its report, COPASIR called for a "greater commitment by our country - by all subjects and authorities which are variously implicated - in this field, also not excluding possible interventions" in the legislative sphere. (ANSA).
