After drawn-out back-and-forth proceedings, Amri’s body was transferred to Tunisia, where it was stored in a hospital in the capital city of Tunis. Italian authorities previously initiated a argument regarding the body. The city of Sesto San Giovanni, where Amri was shot on December 23, four days after fleeing Germany, refused to pay the bill for the preservation of the corpse.
According to Sesto’s Mayor Roberto Di Stefano, the small Italian city received the bill from the nearby city of Milan, where Amri’s body had been stored in the months following his death. Di Stefano said he would not pay the 2,160 euros ($2,543) price tag, underlining that his citizen’s money would “never” be used for a terrorist.
