Giuseppe Toniolo was detained in San Marino, on suspicion of financial wrongdoing. He was due to be extradited to Italy. Mr Toniolo claimed that he had done nothing wrong. He also claimed that his detention was unnecessary, given that he was not dangerous and there was no risk of him absconding.
Nevertheless, Mr Toniolo spent five weeks in detention in San Marino. According to him, he had no access to his lawyers, and was not properly heard by a court. Mr Toniolo was eventually extradited to Italy, where he was ultimately released.
