 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Casimirri – the Italian terrorist hiding in Nicaragua

Alessio Casimirri, a former member of the Red Brigades, is an Italian terrorist who has absconded to Managua, where he is living under the protection of the Nicaraguan Government. In Italy he has been sentenced definitively to six life terms for the kidnapping of Aldo Moro and the murder of his escorts in Rome on 16 March 1978.

On 14 March 2019, following approval of an amendment tabled by the ID political group to a resolution on Nicaragua (1) , Parliament called for the terrorist’s immediate extradition to Italy to ensure that justice is served, not least out of respect for the victims’ families (2) .

In view of the above, can the Commission answer the following questions:

1. What action has it taken since the resolution to bring about the extradition to Italy of this fugitive from justice?

2. Is it aware of any diplomatic efforts by the current Italian Government to secure the terrorist’s extradition?

(1) 2019/2615(RSP): https://www.europarl.europa.eu/doceo/document/TA-8-2019-0219_EN.html
(2) ‘8. Calls for the immediate extradition of Alessio Casimirri, currently living in Managua under the protection of the Nicaraguan Government, to Italy, where he has been given six definitive life sentences for the kidnapping of Aldo Moro, former leader of the Christian Democracy party, Prime Minister and President of the European Council, and the murder of his guards on 16 March 1978 in Rome.’
