Italy requests Brazil extradite Robinho

Former Milan forward convicted of rape

(ANSA) - ROME, OCT 4 - The Italian justice ministry has sent a request to Brazil to extradite former AC Milan and Brazil forward Robinho in relation to a definitive conviction to nine years in jail for gang rape.
    The conviction over the gang rape of a 23-year-old Albanian woman in a Milan night club on January 22, 2013, became definitive when the supreme Court of Cassation upheld it in January this year.
    The ministry also requested the extradition of one of Robinho's friends, Ricardo Falco, another Brazilian, in relation to the case.
    Robinho, 38, played for Milan between 2010 and 2014, scoring 25 goals in 108 appearances.
    He has 100 Brazil caps and 28 goals for his country.
    The Brazilian Constitution does not allow Brazilians to be extradited from their homeland. (ANSA).
