President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's refusal on December 31 to extradite Battisti, a member of the Armed Proletariat for Communism (PAC), a radical and armed left-wing group that killed several people in the 1970s, sparked a wave of indignation across Italy. Battisti has been found guilty of the group's 1978-1979 murders of a prison guard, a special investigator of terrorist organisations, a butcher and a jeweller, and in 1993 was sentenced in his absence to life in prison.
