Padua, April 19 - Giuseppe Salvatore Riina, son of
Salvatore 'Toto'' Riina, the most powerful Sicilian Mafia boss
in the 1980s and early 1990s, on Friday defended his father and
said he was proud to carry his family name.
"It is a surname that was given to me by two parents who
were able to teach me many things: values, morals," he told the
northern regional Corriere del Veneto newspaper.
"I am honoured to be the son of Toto' Riina and Antonietta
Bagarella".
His mother, like Riina, also comes from a powerful Mafia
family from Corleone in the province of Palermo, considered the
heart of Mafia activity in the years leading up to the massacres
of 1992-1993 in which anti-mafia prosecutors Giovanni Falcone
and Paolo Borsellino were just two of the many people who lost
their lives.
Giuseppe currently lives under special surveillance in the
Veneto city of Padua where he works for a local association
providing services to marginalised people after serving an
eight-year-and-10-month sentence for Mafia association.
Arrested in 1993, Toto' Riina is currently being held in a
maximum-security jail on multiple life sentences and his son
said he was sure "his father will not come out of prison alive".
