New York, July 19 - The CIA's former Milan station
chief Robert Lady, who was facing extradition to Italy from
Panama for his role in the 2003 abduction of Muslim cleric
Hassan Mustafa Omar Nasr, has been released by authorities and
is aboard a flight to the United States, the US State Department
confirmed Friday.
The United States had been viewed as extremely unlikely to
let him end up in a foreign jail, and expected to "exert
pressure in all directions to make sure that does not happen,"
said Milan prosecutor Ferdinando Pomarici earlier Friday.
Pomarici helped secure a nine-year conviction for Lady, who
was detained by Panamanian police over an entry violation from
Costa Rica and handed over to Interpol Thursday night on an
international warrant issued by Italy.
Italy and Panama do not have an extradition treaty and the
US, which wields influence in the Central American country, is
famously unwilling to hand its citizens over to foreign
jurisdictions.
