Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Italian judiciary has always been up front- often backed by the government- in trying cases of desaparcidos. The Abu Omar trial is to their credit. I'm surprised the Italian State has not signed the convention and I'll try to find out why.

Countries like Germany and New Zealand have nothing to worry about this treaty, and still they didn't sign. There probably was some kind of agreement not to support this motion in exchange for something else down the line, maybe coming from the US. It might even be that they are going to sign it later, as not to give too much credit to France, or to get something from France. It's just speculation anyway. Laws and sausages and all that.
