Florence, May 23 - A fisherman on Thursday was
sentenced to life imprisonment for his role supplying explosives
for Mafia massacres in Rome, Florence and Milan 20 years ago.
Sicilian fisherman Cosimo D'Amato, 68, was convicted on
testimony from a former mafia member Gaspare Spatuzza.
D'Amato, who is from Palermo, now faces civil actions from
the families of the victims.
He is also being probed for a role in supplying the
dynamite used in a massive explosion that killed anti-Mafia
magistrate Giovanni Falcone, his wife Francesca Morvillo, and
three bodyguards in May 1992.
That explosion occurred on the motorway near the town of
Capaci near Sicily's regional capital.
Falcone and his friend and anti-Mafia partner Paolo
Borsellino are considered national heroes.
The 21st anniversary of Falcone's murder was marked with
ceremonies in Palermo Thursday.
Police say that D'Amato recovered large amounts of TNT,
later used in several mafia bombings, from World War II remains.
D'Amato is related to other members of the mafia involved
in the Falcone and Borsellino slayings.
