“Eitan was stolen from a family who didn’t know him, who hadn’t previously been close to him in any way.” This is the harsh denunciation of Gali Peri, maternal aunt of little Eitan, the only survivor of the Mottarone tragedy last May. The child is currently in Italy entrusted to his paternal aunt, Aya Biran.
Attorney Ronen Dlayahu, who represents the interests of the family branch in Israel, announced in a press conference with Ms. Peri that he had initiated proceedings for Eitan’s adoption and return to Israel. For the lawyer “Eitan is hostage”.

Meanwhile, today, in Verbania, the awarding of the prizes collected for the little one by professional cyclists was held on the occasion of the passage to Stresa last May 28 of the Giro d’Italia. “In recent days Eitan has been in hospital in Turin to remove the plaster casts. He is better and this is great news.” The chief rabbi of Turin Ariel Di Porto is said to be “happy” with the improvement of the child, the only survivor of the Mottarone cable car accident. “There are signs of recovery, his path will be long but he is responding well and is giving us hope in the face of the tragedy he has experienced”, he adds. The echo of the accusations of the maternal aunt Gali Peri, who from Israel announced with her lawyer that she had started a procedure for the adoption of the child, accusing her paternal aunt of holding him “hostage” in Italy, had not yet arrived on Lake Maggiore when the ceremony for the delivery of gifts was held. ” Thanks to the institutions and people who are helping Eitan – comments Rabbi Ariel Di Porto – The child will need support, but these gestures will help him have a better future ”. The cyclists gave Eitan a World Champion jersey, with the signatures of many athletes, and a check for 30 thousand euros, the prizes of the 19th stage of the Giro d’Italia which, as a sign of respect for the victims of the accident cableway, last May 28 changed its route and did not pass by Mottarone. “It is a gesture that does the cyclists credit. They wanted to make a contribution in this difficult moment for Eitan: it was the least that riders could do”, says Gianni Bugno, president of the world association of professional cyclists.
