Release from arrest doesn't hurt chances says justice minister

    (ANSA) - Brussels, March 13 - Italy has the "clear political will" to bring back former leftist terrorist Cesare Battisti from Brazil to serve life for four murders, Justice Minister Andrea Orlando said Friday. Orlando said Battisti's release Friday after an overnight arrest didn't "necessarily" hurt Italy's chances of repatriating him. Battisti is appealing against Brazil's ruling to eject him last month.
    Orlando said Italian authorities have been in constant touch with Brazilian ones.
