“Under investigation, he claimed he has been residing in Italy since 2011, after entering the country via Libya with one of his uncles. He said he works as a restaurant attendant in Italy where he earns 900 Euros per month and also works as a painter on his free day and gets about 400 Euros upon completion of any work,” the statement read.
