ROME, Nov. 13 (Xinhua) -- The fear of assassination that haunted Palermo prosecutors for decades has returned following claims that Sicilian mafia bosses are planning to kill one of their number with explosives or even a bazooka rocket launcher.
Cosa Nostra leaders' prime target is the magistrate Nino Di Matteo, a high-ranking mafia informant has revealed.
Mr. Di Matteo is currently leading the prosecution of ten ex-state officials following investigations into shady state-Mafia negotiations that were prompted by Cosa Nostra's last bombing campaign, back in the early 1990s.
Vittorio Teresi, a colleague of Di Matteo in the Palermo prosecutors office, told La Repubblica newspaper: "We're frightened. I admit it. They say the explosives are ready. Put yourselves in our shoes. This news is causing great anxiety and stress for our families Uomo Nike Air Max 97 UL'17 HAL Nere Scontate , too. But we're ready to fight on."
In the past few days revelations that the Sicilian mafia is considering the use of explosives in Palermo, or Kalashnikovs or even a Bazooka in Rome, to take out Mr Di Matteo has seen his security dramatically stepped up. It is reported that he has now been assigned an armored military vehicle to move around it.
The married, 52-year-old father of two, was already living virtually under lock and key. Everywhere Mr. Di Matteo goes, a ring of carabinieri officers with submachine guns fan out around him. He is no longer able to go swimming Uomo Nike Air Max 97 Metallic Rosse Bronze Scontate , as he used to. He goes jogging in military barracks, always surrounded by the ring of armed guards.
The threats against Mr. Di Matteo's life resonate strongly with those fighting the Mafia. In May 1992, as a young man, Mr. Di Matteo wore his magistrate's robe for the first time as he stood by the coffin of the iconic anti-mafia prosecutor Giovanni Falcone. Two months later another senior colleague, Paolo Borsellino, was also killed by a mafia bomb as part of Costa Nostra's brief but brutal war on the state.
Mr. Di Matteo is currently involved in a trial and related probes into the presumed talks between the mafia and state officials in 1992. The secret negotiations are thought to have taken place with the aim of halting Cosa Nostra's campaign of violence in which policemen Uomo Nike Air Max 90 Ultra SE Scarpe Maroon Nere Scontate , politicians and members of the public, as well as magistrates, were killed by bombs or bullets.
Perhaps the most chilling claim relating to the clandestine talks suggests that state officials colluded in the killing of the second prosecutor, Mr. Borsellino, because he'd become aware that the illicit negotiations were taking place and strongly disapproved of them.
The secret talks may also have seen many senior mobsters released from the solitary confinement. The former interior minister Nicola Mancino is among those who Mr. Di Matteo and his colleagues are currently attempting to prosecute in Palermo. Mr. Mancino is not accused of being directly involved in the negotiations, but of having perjured himself by telling a previous court hearing that he knew nothing about them.
Many experts believe that Mr. Di Matteo's insistence on getting to the bottom of the murky meetings between mob bosses and officials has put him in danger. "I think this is the real reason for the threats Uomo Nike Air Max 95 Jacquard Scarpe Nere Scontate ," said on veteran mafia writer, Attilio Bolzoni.
Di Matteo appears to share this view. "Let's just say it's a coincidence, [that] the order for my death and the anonymous threats arrive all at the same time when the accused are indicted and I, with my colleagues, have decided not to stop the investigation," he noted last year when the first news of death .
