Bus drivers 'not racist' for refusing immigrants
by Patrick Browne
Bus drivers in Milan are refusing to transport migrants because of fears they will catch diseases, but have insisted the move was not racially motivated.
In a letter to the Milan's transport authority (Atm), the drivers said they were concerned about the health risks posed from transporting migrants from the city's central station to accommodation centres.
In the letter, the bus drivers were quick to deny any suggestions of racism stating: "It's not racism. The correct sanitation measures are not in place, neither for workers or passengers," Corriere Quotidiano reported.
