Rome, July 25 - The head prosecutor from the
southern city of Salerno, Franco Roberti, was elected as Italy's
national anti-mafia prosecutor on Thursday.
Roberti, 61, who was elected unanimously by the Italian
judiciary's self-governing body, the CSM, formerly headed Naples
anti-mafia operations concentrating on the dangerous Casalesi
clan, immortalized in Italian journalist Roberto Saviano's 2006
bestseller Gomorra that was later turned into a critically
acclaimed film.
Roberti has had "exceptional success in the fight against
the Camorra...and his work as chief prosecutor in Salerno
confirms his experience and unquestionable ability to guarantee
the defense of our citizens and the shared values of legality
and justice,''Giuseppe Esposito, the vice-president of
parliament's COPASIR secret service commission, said.
The newly elected anti-mafia chief will take office on
August 10.
Roberti replaces Senate Speaker Pietro Grasso, who stepped
down as anti-mafia prosecutor in December to run in national
elections.
