Italy cancels former CIA agent’s extradition from Portugal in Terrorist abduction case

“A former CIA agent set to be extradited from Portugal to Italy over the kidnapping of a Muslim cleric, Abu Omar, won a last-minute reprieve on Wednesday, her lawyer said…

The Italians also convicted Omar in absentia of “criminal association for the purposes of international terrorism” and sentenced him to six years in prison.”

“The White House — which previously said it was “trying to intervene” — did not respond to requests for comment Tuesday over the reduced sentence. De Sousa and her lawyer had hoped the Trump administration could block the extradition.”
