A Sicilian mafia stoolpigeon said  he is responsible for the deaths of approximately 40 people, including the victims of Cosa Nostra bombings from 1992 to 1993, reports Ansa News

“I am responsible for about 40 murders. I ask forgiveness from the city, from the victims and from their relatives,” said repentant mob rat,  Gaspare  Spatuzza, who was heard in a Milan court via live video transmission from prison.

Spatuzza is serving as a star witness for the prosecution in the trial against Marcello Tutino, accused of having an insider role in a car bombing in downtown Milan on July 27, 1993.

The dynamite blast near two contemporary art museums in Via Palestro, known as the Via Palestro Massacre, killed five people. “We have done horrible things,” said Spatuzza.

“To accuse Marcello Tutino is painful but for me it is an honor to be here to testify, even for the justice for the victims’ families”.


The crime  boss  turned super snitch  has been convicted of six bomb attacks and 40 homicides.  He  spilled the beans on Cosimo D’Amato,a Sicilian  fisherman who supplied more than a ton of TNT to the mafia, which  was used in a wave of attacks that killed 21 people

According to Mafia insiders the aim of the bombings was to force the government to negotiate more lenient sentences for convicted mobsters.

By Shelly Murphy


Federal authorities plan to call James “Whitey” Bulger’s girlfriend before a federal grand jury in a bid to force her to help them locate money and other valuables the gangster may have stashed around the world, according to two people familiar with the case.

Catherine Greig, 63, who is serving an eight-year prison term for helping Bulger evade capture for more than 16 years, was transferred earlier this month from the federal penitentiary in Waseca, Minn., to the state-run Donald W. Wyatt Detention Facility in Central Falls, R.I., according to a person who is close to the Bulger and Greig families. A US Bureau of Prisons website also notes that Greig is no longer in its custody.

An armed gunman  packing a pistol and explosives  who  took a hostage  in a Brasilia hotel has demanded the extradition of leftist Italian militant Cesare Battisti,reports  Ansa News

The gunman carrying several sticks of dynamite took a hotel employee hostage and barricaded himself in one of the rooms. Police have evacuated some 300 hotel guests, surrounded the building, and sent negotiators to talk to the gunman, local media reported.

Battisti has been sentenced in Italy to  life in prison for the murder of four people in the 1970s when he was part of an extremist left-wing group.

The Brazilian Supreme Court voted in June 2011 not extradite him  and to uphold a decision by Brazilian ex-president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva on the grounds that Battisti would face “political persecution” in Italy.

OCRI, Italy –  First Italy fought its mafia mobsters by confiscating their wealth. Now judges are taking away something more precious: their sons.

Riccardo Cordi’, a shy 18-year-old scion of one of Italy’s most notorious mob families, is a pioneer in a new strategy to fight the mafia by exiling crime clan sons from their homes and families.

Riccardo is the first of about 20 sons sent into a kind of rehab away from the mob by juvenile courts in the southern region of Calabria, home to the dangerous ‘ndrangheta syndicate.

By age 16, Riccardo seemed destined to go the way of his father, a reputed boss gunned down in a turf war, and three elder brothers in prison on mafia-related convictions. Their photos line the wall of the fortress-like Cordi’ home in Calabria, seen in an exclusive visit by The Associated Press, in a testimony to the rule of blood in the powerful ‘ndrangheta.
