Former League social media chief probed in drugs case

Morisi quit position last week, Salvini voices support for his 'friend'.

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 27 - Verona Prosecutor Angela Barbaglio told ANSA on Monday that Luca Morisi, the former head of the highly successful social media campaigns of Matteo Salvini's League party, is under investigation in a drugs probe.
    Morisi quit his position in the right-wing party last week, citing family reasons.
    "Morisi has been inserted into the register of people under investigation for the alleged transfer of a narcotic substance," Barbaglio said.
    She added that investigators were awaiting the results of tests about the nature of the substance. Salvini expressed support for Morisi in a Facebook post.
"When a friend does wrong and makes a mistake that you don't expect, and Luca hurt himself more than others, at first you get angry with him, and in a big way," Salvini said in a post with a photo of him together with Morisi.
"But then you stretch out your hand to help him get back up.
"Friendship and loyalty are Life for me.
"We were a few years younger and a few kilos lighter in this photo.
"I want to see you soon with this smile.
"I love you my friend, you can count on me. Always". (ANSA).
