Brasilia, April 17 - A Brazilian judge has taken
away Cesare Battisti's passport and imposed other restrictive
measures on the Italian former leftwing terrorist over
accusations he provided a false address when he married his
Brazilian wife.
He has been forbidden from leaving the Cananeia district and
from being out of his home after 22:00 and he must also sign in
once a month with the local authorities.
Battisti's wife Joice Lima is also subject to the
restrictions.
Italy is trying to have Battisti extradited to serve two life
terms for the four murders committed in the 'Years of Lead' of
rightist and leftist terror.
Last month, the Brazilian Federal Prosecution Office appeared
to open the road for that in an opinion sent to the Supreme
Federal Court (STF), rejecting the assertion of Battisti's
defence team that the decree impeding his extradition signed by
ex-president Luis Ignacio Lula Da Silva could not amended by
current President Michel Temer.
Battisti, 63, was arrested in October when he was stopped
from entering Bolivia in a taxi, amid reports 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.
