Prison not 'incompatible' with Provenzano's condition

Mafia kingpin to remain in prison despite failing health

Palermo, September 3 - Mafia kingpin Bernardo Provenzano will remain in prison, despite his failing health, Italy's anti-mafia prosecutors said on Tuesday. In July, prosecutors from Palermo, Caltanissetta and Florence agreed to withdraw the so-called 41-bis treatment for Italy's most dangerous criminals imposed on Provenzano after his conviction in the assassinations of anti-mafia prosecutors. However, anti-mafia judges said that prison conditions for the 80-year-old former boss were not "incompatible" with his health. Arrested in 2006 after 43 years on the run, Provenzano's health is failing and his family has been calling for leniency.
