Caserta, December 21 - Italian police on Friday
arrested a doctor and lawyer who falsely certified that a
Camorra mafia boss was blind, enabling him to skip house arrest
and wage a war that killed almost 20 people.
Ophthalmologist Aldo Fronterre' and lawyer Girolamo Casella
allegedly gave Giuseppe Setola the certificates that enabled him
to be granted house arrest in 2007.
Setola, a member of the Casalesi clan whose death threats
have forced anti-mafia writer Roberto Saviano into hiding,
escaped from Fronterre's clinic in the northern Italian city of
Pavia on April 7, 2008, setting in motion the so-called 'season
of massacres' that peaked on September 18 when six West African
immigrants were slain in Castel Volturno.
Before his arrest on January 14, 2009, Setola led a Casalesi
death squad that between May 2 and December 12 2008 murdered 18
people.
It also carried out another eight ambushes.
Setola was sentenced to life imprisonment last year.
