UDC's Casini mourns death of Andreotti

(see related) Rome, May 6 - The leader of Italy's centrist UDC party expressed condolences over the death of seven-time premier Giulio Andreotti on Monday, calling him "a great figure" he considered a friend while acknowledging his controversial status. "He was a statesman about whom much has been said, good and bad, and history will be a better judge than many of his detractors during his lifetime," said Pier Ferdinando Casini. The small UDC is one of the parties that was formed from the wreckage after Andreotti's Christian Democrat (DC) party collapsed during the Bribesville scandals in the early 1990s.
