Un commento su “Frank Serpico is an Italian citizen.

  1. Yes, correct, he was awarded the Saint Michael Archangel Prize by the National Association of Italian State Police. An award coming from the Italian Polizia di Stato and the Ministry of Interior. At the same event, also Special Agent in Charge HSI Andrew McLees and Mayor of Newark Cory Booker have been awarded.

    Thanks to an effort of the President of the ANPS, Chief Inspector Sergio Cirelli, who established the ‘ius sangunis’, Serpico’s italian citizenship is now a dream come true for “Francesco” Serpico, exhibiting his new Passport.
