In this paper we extend to arbitrary complex coefficients certain finiteness results on Unlikely intersections linked to torsion in abelian surface schemes over a curve, which have been recently proved for the case of algebraic coefficients; in this way we complete the solution of Zilber-Pink conjecture for abelian surface schemes over a curve. As experience has shown also in previous cases, the extension from algebraic to complex coefficients often requires entirely new arguments, whereas simple specialization arguments fail.
The outcome gives as a byproduct new finiteness results when the base of the scheme has arbitrary dimension; another consequence is a proof of an expectation of Mazur concerning the structure of the locus in the base when a given section is torsion. Finally, we show the link with an old work of Griffiths and Harris on a higher dimensional extension of a theorem of Poncelet.
