Rome, January 11 - Centre-right Senator and former
Silvio Berlusconi aide Marcello Dell'Utri was the Mafia's
ambassador in the ex-premier's party, Antonio Ingroia, the
former Palermo anti-mafia prosecutor, said Friday.
Dell'Utri is currently facing a retrial in Palermo on the
orders of the supreme Court of Cassation for allegedly helping
the Mafia on grounds that his legal rights were not respected in
an earlier appeal.
Italy's highest court also said there was evidence that the
suspect had acted as an intermediary with the Mafia for
Berlusconi, handing on ''substantial sums'' of money - thought
to total around 40 million euros over 10 years - for protection.
Ingroia, the leader of the newly formed Civil Revolution
political party, said Dell'Utri helped Berlusconi form his
former party, Forza Italia, "on the basis of an agreement" with
the Sicilian Mafia.
''Dell'Utri worked with input from Cosa Nostra, he was the
ambassador of Cosa Nostra,'' Ingroia told La7 television.
Dell'Utri is also one of 11 people implicated in a case
concerning alleged negotiations between the Mafia and the
Italian State in the early 1990s, including notorious Mafia
bosses, ex-anti-Mafia police officers and current members of
parliament.
He denies any wrongdoing.
