Baptists get permission to stay: it is free to travel abroad

Two weeks after the ruling that opened the doors of the prison where he was in jail for more than four years, Cesare Battisti began a new phase of his life in Brazil: the local authorities gave the go-ahead issuing visas for their stay in the country to the former terrorist.

This will allow him to enjoy the same rights as Brazilians, except the right to vote and stand for election. The granting of the document, the only one in possession of Baptists, was announced by the National Council of immigration, an organization under the Ministry of Labour.
