According to the Italian intelligence, Farj Hassan Faraj al-Saadi was the envoy of Abu Musab al Zarqawi in Europe and a member of the Milan 01 Cell. The request was approved by the UK high court in 12/2004 but the extradition was delayed mainly because of exchange of accusations between the UK and Italy.
