Brasilia, March 13 - The Brazilian Federal
Prosecution Office appears to have opened the road for former
leftwing terrorist Cesare Battisti to be extradited to Italy.
In an opinion sent to the Supreme Federal Court (STF), the
office rejected the assertion of Battisti's defence team that
the decree impeding his extradition signed by ex-president Lula
Da Silva could not amended by current President Michel Temer.
In its opinion, the Federal Prosecution Office said "the
decision is exclusively of the president of the republic".
Italy is trying to have the 63-year-old extradited so he can
serve two life terms for the four murders committed in the
'Years of Lead' of rightist and leftist terror.
Battisti was arrested in October when he was stopped from
entering Bolivia in a taxi, amid reports the Brazilian Temer had
decided to lift his political-refugee status, granted by former
Lula in 2010. He was subsequently released, pending a ruling.
Battisti, a former member of the Armed Proletarians for
Communism (PAC) group, said he was not trying to flee.
