Anger As Notorious Sicilian Mafia Crime Boss Is Released From Prison


=== (AGENDAWATCHDOG) === A notorious Sicilian mafia mass killer turned jailhouse snitch has been freed from prison, after serving 25 years.Giovanni Brusca famously murdered Sicilian anti-mafia judge Giovanni Falcone in 1992 with a car bomb and dissolved a young boy’s body with acid.The car bomb that killed Mr Falcone also claimed the lives of his wife and three of his police escorts.

Brusca eventually confessed to more than 100 killings, earning the name “people-slayer”.One of Brusca’s most grisly murders was the slaying of a 14-year-old boy, Giuseppe Di Matteo, the son of a mafia informant.After he was held captive for two years, Giuseppe was strangled and killed in 1995 and his body dissolved in acid.

Brusca’s release from Rome’s Rebibbia prison on Monday (local time) drew widespread disbelief among many Italians.The newspaper La Republicca headlined the news, “Brusca freed, the cruellest boss”.

Inside prison, Brusca became a turncoat and began ratting out Cosa Nostra members.He gave up information on various Cosa Nostra bombing attacks in the 1980s and 1990s and testified in a trial about negotiations between Italian officials and the mafia to stop the attacks.The court has imposed parole conditions on Brusca for four years.
