ROME, 5 November 2009 - On Wednesday afternoon the Italian police arrested anarchist militant Leonardo Landi, struck with an international arrest warrant.
In Ventimilia, border town between France and Italy, a police spokesman announced to Agence France Presse:
"We have arrested Leonardo Landi, wanted for subversive association in relation with a terrorist enterprise, thanks to close collaboration with the French police", declared Paolo Fanzone, in charge of the operation in Imperia. The anarchist militant originally from Florence had been in hiding since May 2008. At the time of his arrest, the man was in the company of a woman of La Spezia, suspected of being an accomplice. ... "M. Landi had been implicated in various terrorist [sic] attacks, especially in the centre of Italy, and he represents a danger due to his capacity to rally other people to his cause", he added, adding that the militant is being held for the moment in San Remo prison. An arrest warrant had been issued in May 2008 by the judiciary of Florence, accusing him of having participated in an armed robbery against a post office in June 2007.
