Sao Paulo, June 28 - A former Italian left-wing
terrorist who has been given asylum in Brazil, Cesare Battisti,
risks being expelled from the South American country after the
Supreme Court upheld a conviction related to a forged stamp on
his passport, Brazilian media reported on Friday.
The case is now in the hands of the justice ministry.
"We'll be waiting for him with open cells," said Elvira
Savino, an MP in ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's centre-right
People of Freedom (PdL) party.
Battisti is wanted in Italy for the murder of four people
in the 1970s when he was part of an extremist left-wing group.
To the outrage of the Italian government, the Brazilian
Supreme Court voted in June, 2011 not extradite him and to
uphold a decision by Brazilian ex-president Luiz Inacio
Lula da Silva on the grounds that Battisti would face
"political persecution" in Italy.
It was da Silva's last act as president on January 1, 2011.
