Rome, May 20 - New video showing Mafia kingpin
Bernardo Provenzano looking old and frail behind prison bars has
triggered new complaints about his case.
The video clips, aired on a public affairs program on
television network LA7, are raising doubts about the mental and
physical health of Provenzano.
Taken from surveillance cameras inside a top-security
prison in the Italian city of Parma, the TV program reiterates
his family's concerns about ill treatment of the Cosa Nostra
boss, convicted on numerous counts of murder.
A request for his release on health reasons was refused
last month.
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.
They 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.
The ex-Mafia chieftain, once nicknamed "The Bulldozer", is
serving life for various murders including ordering fatal bomb
attacks on anti-mafia prosecutors Giovanni Falcone and Paolo
Borsellino in 1992.
