Salvini urges EP to vote to extradite ex- BR terrorist

Alessio Casimirri convicted in Moro assassination

(ANSA) - Rome, March 13 - Interior Minister and League leader Matteo Salvini on Wednesday voiced the hope that the European Parliament will Thursday vote a League amendment to a resolution on Nicaragua calling for the extradition of former Red Brigades (BR) terrorist Alessio Casimirri, convicted in the 1978 kidnapping and murder of Christian Democrat statesman Aldo Moro.
    Casimirri has for years been living in Managua where he owns a restaurant.
    "We are firmly convinced that criminals who have fled abroad should return to Italy and serve their sentences," Salvini said.
    "We are working on several fronts and I hope that in Europe too they will share our government's battle".
