Sicilian Mafia: Anger as “people slayer” Giovanni Brusca freed

Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“Sicilian Mafia boss Giovanni Brusca, whose grisly crimes include having a child’s body dissolved in acid, has been released from prison. Dubbed the ‘people slayer’, Brusca has confessed to his role in over 100 killings, including the assassination of Italy’s top anti-Mafia prosecutor Giovanni Falcone. But Brusca became an informant, helping prosecutors hunt down fellow mobsters. His release after 25 years in jail has outraged his victims’ relatives. He will now be on parole for four years. Brusca, now 64, was a key figure within the Cosa Nostra, the Sicilian Mafia group. In 1992, he detonated the bomb that killed Italy’s leading anti-Mafia investigator, judge Giovanni Falcone, in one of the country’s most infamous murder cases.” (06/01/21)
