Prosecutors said they opened an investigation after filmmaker Francesco Sperandeo posted a photo to Facebook of the two men being deported on an Alitalia flight with their mouths taped shut and their hands cuffed with plastic bands, ANSA reported Thursday.
"The indifference of the other passengers" was the worst part, Sperandeo said.
He said the officers told him the methods they were using were "normal."
