Rome, April 8 - Mafia 'boss of bosses' Salvatore
'Toto' Riina is to remain under the maximum-security prison
regime even though he is suffering from heart disease, the
Supreme Court of Cassation ruled on Monday.
The sentence came in response to an appeal by his lawyer
against an earlier ruling upholding the so-called 41-bis regime
for people convicted of certain mafia crimes on grounds that his
client, 82, needed hospital treatment.
The judges found that medical checks on Riina could be
carried out while he was in detention.
"The urgent need for prevention does not exclude the
provision of adequate health care" for the former head of the
ruthless Corleonesi clan who is currently serving multiple life
sentences for Mafia crimes, the court ruled.
