A man who’s been convicted of manslaughter and robbery by a Geneva court fled to his native Brazil 11 years ago before he could be sent to prison.

Over the weekend he decided to visit family in Italy and was immediately arrested at Milan airport under an international warrant.

While he seemed to think the issue would have been forgotten – Geneva police hadn’t. He’s now being detained ahead of extradition to Switzerland.
