Palermo, February 22 - Lawyers representing
Bernardo 'The Bulldozer' Provenzano, the former Cosa Nostra
Mafia 'boss of bosses', have filed a motion to remove him from a
top-security prison regime due to his declining health.
Arrested in 2006 after 43 years on the run, Provenzano has
been subjected to the so-called 41-bis treatment for Italy's
most dangerous criminals, who can be kept in single-person cells
in maximum-security jails, almost entirely cut off from the
outside world in order to prevent further criminal activity.
Provenzano's lawyers argue that his failing mental and
physical health no longer make him a risk.
The ex-mafia chieftain is serving life for various murders
including ordering bomb attacks on anti-mafia prosecutors
Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino in 1992.
