A man wanted by Interpol and Italian police will soon be extradited from Bali back to Italy to serve a long prison term for assault and death of a man in 2011.

Antonio Messicati Vitale (40) has was apprehended in Bali on December 7 of 2012 at a local villa and has been resisting extradition since then as Indonesian prosecutors review warrants and evidence files in his case.

Indonesia and Italy do not have a formal extradition treaty.

Prosecutors say their files are now ready for presentation to the Courts in order that a final order of extradition can be issued.

According to NusaBali, Vitale fled Bali in 2011 following an incident involving a physical assault and subsequent death. Before the Italian Courts could render a final verdict in the case and a possible sentence of 24 years in prison, the Italian fled his native land on April 16, 2012.

The press depicts Vitale as a member of an organized crime organization involved in narcotics, arms dealing, human trafficking and other criminal activities. Vitale is the son of well-known mobster Pietro Messicati Vitale of the Villabate crime family. When, in 1985, famed anti-Mafia policeman Beppe Montana arrested the elder Vitales, Montana was killed in a gangland execution a few days after the arrest.

Pietro, the father of Vitale, was released from prison in 1988. Fifty days after his release he, too, was killed in a Mafia-style slaying while riding a motor scooter in Palermo, Sicily.
