Deepfake porn trial: Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni seeks $108,200 damages.

A civil trial has been initiated by Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, who is claiming damages in the amount of $108,200 (€100,000) following the publication of pornographic deepfake films of herself on the internet.

In the legal lawsuit that Meloni is bringing against two men, who are accused of superimposing her face on the bodies of adult film stars and posting the recordings on a porn website situated in the United States in the year 2020, Meloni has been invited to testify before a court in Sardinia on July 2.

The males, a forty-year-old and his father, who is seventy-three years old, have not been identified in public. They are being charged with criminal defamation in addition to the legal complaint that Meloni has filed against them. A number of pornographic videos and photographs were created and uploaded to the men’s cellphones, which allowed the police to trace them down and discover their whereabouts.

Meloni, who is 47 years old, was running for prime minister as the leader of her Brothers of Italy party at the time that the tapes were uploaded to the internet. By a landslide victory in 2022, she was elected to the position of Prime Minister.

According to the criminal complaint, the photos were uploaded on the internet over a period of several months and were viewed by a number of millions of people. A number of the photographs are still being shared on the internet.

CNN was informed by Maria Giulia Marongiu, Meloni’s attorney, that Meloni intends to contribute any potential financial prize to the domestic violence victims’ fund that is administered by the Ministry of the Interior.

“The prime minister was hoping to set an example for other victims of revenge porn and deepfake porn to speak out against those who defame them,” Marongiu told Italian press sources. “He expressed his hope that this would be a positive step forward.”
