Cesare Battisti's defense summons the Federal Supreme Court of Brazil against possible revision of an act that denied extradition

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

The lawyers of the italian Cesare Battisti have filed Habeas Corpus (HC 148408) in the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) to prevent the possibility of extradition, deportation or expulsion by the President of the Republic.The rapporteur is Justice Luiz Fux.

Battisti had his extradition requested by the Republic of Italy due to conviction for the practice of four murders. In 2010, after the STF authorized the extradition and stressed that the acceptance does not bind the Executive Branch, the then President of the Republic, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, on the last day of his term, signed a decree in which he denied to the Italian government the request of extradition of the former activist. In 2011, the Supreme closed the Complaint (RCL) 11243, filed by the Italian government against Lula's act, and determined the release of Italian.
