Italian police open abduction investigation against Eitan Biran’s grandfather

Italian police have opened an abduction investigation against Shmuel Peleg, the grandfather of 6-year-old Eitan Biran, who lost his family in a cable car disaster in Italy earlier this year, the Italian newspaper La Repubblica reports.

Eitan’s current legal guardian, Aya Biran-Nirko, the Italy-based sister of the child’s late father, filed a complaint with the Italian police on Saturday, claiming that he was abducted by Peleg and taken to Israel.

The boy’s other aunt, Gali Peleg, denied that the child had been abducted, saying she has initiated legal proceedings to adopt her nephew.
