Italian fugitive Cesare Battisti back in Rome faces life in prison after extradition from Bolivia

France 24 Monday, 14 January 2019 ()
A former leftist militant sought by Rome for four murders in the 1970s was handed over to Italian authorities on Monday after being extradited from Bolivia. Cesare Battisti managed to remain on the run for almost 40 years. After almost four decades on the run, Italian former leftist guerrilla Cesare Battisti was arrested in Bolivia on January 12. He had been living in neighbouring Brazil for years under the protection of former leftist president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, despite Italy’s repeated demands for his extradition. Battisti was handed over to Italian authorities and put on an airplane at Santa Cruz international airport in Bolivia, headed for Rome.
