Ethan is not currently involved, although depending on the evolution he could possibly be consulted as a witness.
According to Betti, the ten-page chat, which precedes the facts involved in the Portanova proceeding, is useful for framing procedural history. “At the end of the careful study of the material made available, it can be concluded that the event is part of a certain dynamic … There is no evidence to suggest that the offended person has expressed his disagreement with the defendant . in a clear and unequivocal way “, concluded the forensic psychologist.

The night she met Portanova and her friends, between July 30 and 31 last year in an apartment in the center of Siena, she was also there, although in another room and with a boy who has no nothing to do with the complaint.
In the indictment last March, the prosecutor Nicola Marini had pointed out as “Portanova, aware that the girl was in love with him, despite the young woman’s clear intention to be alone with the suspect … they forced her to have sex by taking pictures and shooting her. . ” .
