French court rejects extradition of far-left terrorists to Italy

Terrorists were affiliated with notorious Red Brigade that was involved in killings of some 50 people in Italy

ATHENS (AA) – A French court rejected the extradition of 10 far-left terrorists to Italy, the Italian press reported on Tuesday.

France’s Court of Cassation, upholding the ruling by a lower court, refused to extradite 10 terrorists, said the state-run ANSA news agency.

Among the terrorists is Giorgio Pietrostefani, who was sentenced to life for his role in the murder of Milan police chief Luigi Calabresi on May 17, 1972, it added.

Last year, French President Emmanuel Macron had openly voiced support for the extradition by saying: “They should be judged on Italian soil.”

The terrorists were arrested in 2021, a move that seemed to have ended the so-called Mitterrand Doctrine that shielded terrorists from Italian justice as long as they gave up the armed attacks.

The terror group Red Brigades, with which the terrorists were affiliated, got involved in the killing of some 50 Italians, including Prime Minister Aldo Moro, in 1974-1988.
