A former CIA agent has lodged another appeal at Portugal’s Constitutional Court against her extradition to Italy to serve a four-year sentence for her part in the U.S. extraordinary renditions program, a court official said Thursday.
Sabrina de Sousa has asked the Constitutional Court to appoint a three-judge panel to review a decision last month by one of its judges to permit her extradition, the official told The Associated Press.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in accordance with court rules, couldn’t say how long a court decision might take. If the panel can’t reach a unanimous decision on the appeal, it will go to a five-judge panel for a majority decision.
De Sousa said in an email that the appeal sought “to clarify conflicting information between Italian Ministry of Justice and Milan prosecutor.”
She did not elaborate. Her Portuguese lawyer, Manuel Magalhaes e Silva, did not immediately reply to an email asking on what grounds the appeal was lodged.
