Catania, January 28 - A parcel bomb delivered to
the Pagliarelli penitentiary superintendent in Palermo did not
explode thanks to battery failure, Osapp Police Union Vice
Secretary Mimmo Nicotra said on Monday.
The superintendent discovered the bomb after returning
from a several-week holiday January 22.
He opened the package believing it was a union-issued
yearly agenda.
"Fortunately the parcel did not explode due to the length
of time between when it was delivered and opened," Nicotra said.
"This is a serious incident that takes Sicily back
decades. The State must immediately implement prison-staff
increases and improve facilities.
"For now, we can thank our lucky stars, but how long will
that luck last?," Nicotra said.
On January 8 the European Court of Human Rights issued a
sentence giving Italy one year to correct the degrading and
inhumane conditions in its prisons.
Penitentiary policeman and SAPPE, the union that
represents prison officers, have also protested against bad
prison conditions in Italy.
Early January SAPPE called on the government to implement
"structural reforms to a system suffering great difficulty, in
order to protect those workers who are often overlooked, working
quietly and discreetly".
