Milan prosecutor seeks stiffer sentence for ex-CIA chief convicted in Italian kidnapping

By The Associated Press (CP) – Oct 29 2010

ROME — An Italian prosecutor has asked for a stiffer sentence for a CIA station chief convicted in the 2003 kidnapping of an Egyptian cleric in Milan.

Twenty-three Americans, including Robert Seldon Lady, then a CIA station chief in Milan, and two Italians were convicted in November for the kidnapping. It was the first conviction anywhere in the world involving the CIA's extraordinary renditions program. All Americans were tried in absentia.

During the appeals trial, prosecutor Piero De Petris asked on Thursday that Lady's initial eight year sentence be increased to 10 years in prison.

He also requested the court overrule the previous decision to acquit two other officials: Jeffrey Castelli, the former Rome CIA station chief, and Nicolo Pollari, the former head of the Italian military intelligence.

A bit fishy that, their central bank chief is a Goldman Sachs man and it has been admitted (operation Gladio) that their secret services together with CIA have staged a lot of false flag terror attacks in the past. I can smell whitewash here, concentrate on these few they convicted and miss the big picture?

I assume that any extradition agreement we have with Italy will fail to be honored for one reason or another, of course. It's nice to see them trying though.
