Italian premier says commitment will be 'relentless'

Fight against Mafia continues, says Letta

Palermo, May 23 - Italian Premier Enrico Letta said on Thursday, the day in memory of slain anti-mafia judges Paolo Borsellino and Giovanni Falcone, that the fight against the Mafia was not done. Thursday marks the 21st anniversary of Falcone's death. Letta vowed to continue a "relentless commitment in the fight against the Mafia," including new laws. "Unfortunately, the Mafia still exists," Letta said. On May 23, 1992 a roadside bomb took the lives of Falcone, his wife and three police officers. The massacre was followed by a July 19 car bombing that killed Borsellino and five police officers.
