Crocetta: governatore all'Assemblea, non mi dimettoPalermo, July 23 – Embattled Sicily Governor Rosario Crocetta said Thursday the Sicilian Mafia was behind attacks on him, reports Ansa News 

Recent criticism of his management of the region, together with a controversial wiretap whose existence is disputed, were the work of “the real magic circle, that of business which is in cahoots with masonry and the Mafia which no longer massacres but is now inlaid into regional affairs”, he told the Sicilian regional assembly.

Crocett has lived under close police protection in Italy ever since 2003, when the  mafia tried to murder him.
