Silvio Berlusconi
Mobster informant points to Berlusconi, Dell'Utri - ANSA English - ANSA.it: "A mobster-turned-informant told prosecutors in a deposition Thursday that three-time premier Silvio Berlusconi and former Senator Marcello Dell'Utri were credited with "putting the country in the hands" of the Mafia by a notorious Sicilian boss. From a jail in Rome, Gaspare Spatuzza recalled a conversation in 1994 with Cosa Nostra boss Giuseppe Graviano.

"He said, 'I told you that things would turn out all right'. Then he said the name Berlusconi, and added that our paesano Dell'Ultri was also involved, and thanks to them we had the country in our hands".

Dell'Utri is appealing to the supreme Court of Cassation a seven-year sentence imposed in March by a Palermo court that convicted him of Mafia association."
