(ANSA) - Florence, July 24 - An Italian anti-mafia judge and
a Florence lawyer were among three killed in Namibia while on a
hunting expedition in the southern African country, the local
Italian consolate said Tuesday.
Judge Michele Barillaro of the Court of Florence and
Roberto Colcellini died late Monday in a head-on collision with
a truck in the town of Otjiwarongo, along with a Namibian
employee of Colcellini.
Once a judge in Sicily, Barillaro was known for writing the
decisions in high-profile mafia cases such as the sentences of
dozens of perpetrators tied to the bomb attacks that killed
anti-mafia magistrate Paolo Borsellino and Giovanni Falcone in
1992.
Once protected by round-the-clock state surveillance,
Barillaro had his protection priveleges lifted just weeks ago.
Shortly thereafter, a number of Florentine news outlets
received anonymous threats aimed at the judge.
