Rome, May 6 - Former anti-corruption prosecutor
Antonio Di Pietro said Monday that the death of seven-time
premier Giulio Andreotti does not cancel out his murky past.
"The death of any human being as such commands respect, but
respect for his life story is another matter", said Di Pietro,
the founder of the centrist Italy of Values (IdV) party, a
former minister under the center-left Prodi government and a
fierce opponent of former premier Silvio Berlusconi.
"That of Giulio Andreotti is written...also and most of all
in the reams of court documents about him, which cannot and must
not ever be erased".
Among many other cases against him, Andreotti was convicted
and then acquitted on appeal of ordering the 1979 Mafia hit on
muck-raking journalist Mino Pecorelli.
Di Pietro was echoed by anti-Mafia prosecutor and politician
Antonio Ingroia, from the leftist Civil Revolution (RC)
coalition.
"His cynical pragmatism...led him to make deals with the
Mafia. Andreotti, a man of many shadows and little light, may be
dead, but his ideology certainly isn't", said Ingroia, who as a
prosecutor went after high-level politicians for alleged
collusion with the Mafia.
