The former Italian left terrorist Cesare Battisti has gone investigators in Bolivia and into the net. The adviser to the new President of Brazil Jair Bolsonaro, Filipe G. Martins confirmed on Twitter.

Italian officials were on Sunday on a flight to Bolivia for the extradition of the murder in Italy to life imprisonment for 64-Year-old sentenced to reach, like the interior Ministry said in Rome. The Italian Ministry of foreign Affairs stated that they are working on it, that Battisti “will as soon as possible,” shipped to Italy.

In Italy, was sentenced Battisti in absentia for the murder. He was involved as a member of the group “Armed proletarians for communism” in the late 1970s, of four murders in his homeland. He denies any complicity.

Under the socialist President François Mitterrand Battisti in the 1990s had taken refuge in France before the Italian justice found, and an existence built as a writer. As the then conservative Minister of the interior and later President Nicolas Sarkozy wanted to turn him in 2004 in Italy, fled Battisti in Brazil.

The local judiciary issued last December an arrest warrant against him. Shortly thereafter, is said to have Battisti sold to Bolivia.

The Italian newspaper “Corriere della Sera” reported, a special team of Interpol and Italian agents had tracked him down in the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz.
