Rennes court hands over mafia member to Italian authorities
A court in western France on Friday approved the extradition of an Italian mafia member who arrested in September in Brittany where he was operating a cleaning company.
The appeals court in Rennes said that Mario Miceli would be handed over to Italian authorities pending an appeal.
Miceli, 62, fled a six-year prison sentence and had been living under his own name in Arzon, a town perched on the Quiberon Bay, since 2018.
In January, a Milan appeals court convicted him on charges of association with criminals and extortion.
