Italian MEP Mario Borghezio was reportedly given a bloody nose on Thursday as he attempted to sneak into the secretive Bilderberg conference in St. Moritz.
Borghezio, of right-wing Italian party Lega Nord, was reportedly with another Italian as he attempted to infiltrate the luxury Suvretta House hotel where the conference is taking place.
Borghezio was blocked by guards from the security firm Securitas, who then called in the Swiss police. After having their identities checked, the two Italians were told they could not enter the building.
But according to the Italian news agency ANSA, Borghezio’s nose was bloodied during the altercation with the security guards. He told the agency he intends to press charges.
Swiss police spokesman Thomas Hobi said, “We don’t comment on the work of private security firms,” before adding that the police was not at liberty to even confirm the identities of the two men, because of data protection laws.
In a separate incident, two Swiss men were detained near the conference because “several suspicious items” were found in their car.
