Anne Hathaway
's ex-boyfriend/convicted conman Raffaello Follieri has just been taken from federal prison in Pennsylvania and kicked out of the country ... TMZ has learned. 

Follieri pled guilty to conspiracy, wire fraud, and money laundering back in 2008 -- after swindling millions from investors in an American church-buying scheme. He's been behind bars ever since.

Follieri was released today and immediately deported to his native Italy.

A rep for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement tells TMZ, “ICE carried out the order of an immigration judge, and removed Follieri from the United States May 25, 2012.”

Follieri dated Hathaway from 2004-2008.
