Vinchenzo was arrested on August 8, 2019 in France, after being at large. In July 2012 he was sentenced in absentia by the Italian Supreme Court to 11 years and 6 months in prison for the clashes during G8 protests in 2001 and an unauthorized anti-fascist protest in Milano in 2006. Italy has been seeking to extradite him from France to serve his sentence but this has thus far been denied.
The new Cassation hearing is set for June 22, 2022 and will take place at the end of the CJEU hearing. This hearing, of an exceptional nature, was requested by the defense lawyers and granted, which confirms the relevance of the arguments they presented.
