From Anarchists Worldwide, France / Italy

Following the arrest of the anarchist Vincenzo Vecchi, which took place in France on August 8, 2019, thanks to the joint work of the Italian and French police, this morning (August 14) at 11.00 am, at the Court of Appeal of Rennes, a hearing was held concerning his extradition to Italy. According to the limited information that has been revealed so far, the judges decided during the hearing to make no decisions about the extradition, due to a lack of relevant information from the Italian authorities. A further hearing has been set for August 23rd. So until then he would presumably remain imprisoned at Rennes prison.

Notes Beginning with "Operation Scintilla"

After lively months as we tried to give a good response to the eviction of Asilo and the arrests of six comrades, as we tried to keep the will to struggle alive in this city, we are now taking time to reflect on this investigative theorem delivered by the Police, created by prosecutors and approved by a female investigating judge. A theorem which for now hasn’t passed the first impact with the Court of review; after three months, in fact, five comrades are out of prison, which still holds Silvia behind the walls under particularly hard detention conditions.
