“As a citizen and a lawyer, I agree and I find it just an outcome that ensures that a person is not in prison for acts committed 40 years ago. Battisti is the only one of all Pac to have had a life sentence but this is something that must be asked to the judges of merit, it is not a problem of the Court of Appeal which rightly applied the law in the case of Bergamin. Justice is not always fair but technically one cannot modify the sentence in the light of this. considering the current prison status, which having been classified in As 2, in high surveillance, has been in de facto solitary confinement for two and a half years. “. The lawyer Davide Steccanella, Cesare Battisti’s lawyer, says this to Adnkronos, commenting on the prescription for Luigi Bergamin. “The detention that my client is serving is absolutely illegitimate and punitive – reiterates the lawyer – the sentence can no longer be touched but the prison conditions, which currently see a detainee over 65 and suffering from pathologies serving a punitive regime in isolation for a ministerial classification that is no longer in heaven and on earth 42 years later, could perhaps be revised, even with regard to France when the extradition of convicted 40 years ago is requested to show that Italy does not apply then inhuman conditions of imprisonment instead applied to Battisti who committed the latest crime in 1979. In 2021 Battisti is under high surveillance for facts of 41 years ago. He is prevented from any socialization, as there are no more terrorists in prison except Islamic fundamentalists. it is not justice, he is not serving a normal detention. I will inform Minister Cartabia of this situation which, obviously, he is ignorant of “. (by Silvia Mancinelli)
