Defence ministy denies Vannacci 'promotion'

Defence ministy denies Vannacci 'promotion'

Won't have decision-making power as army ground chief of staff

The Italian defence ministry on Sunday denied that 'anti-gay general' Roberto Vannucci had been promoted by being named army ground operation forces chief of staff after being sacked as head of the military geographical institute in August after self-publishing a book saying gays are abnormal.
    Vannacci has been hailed as a hero by the anti-politically correct lobby in Italy over his book, which also slated Jews, feminists, environmentalists and migrants.
    Defence ministry sources said Sunday Vannacci's new post "is not a promotion".
    They stressed that his new role "does not entail relations with other institutions".
    They said he would "only be commander of his own office chiefs and will not have direct decision-making autonomy".
    Former crack paratroop regiment chief Vannacci, 55, who was replaced by his direct superior after Defence Minister Guido Crosetto started disciplinary proceedings in mid-August, has been defended by many right-wing politicians who say his right to free speech is sanctioned by the Italian Constitution.
