Sicily Prosecutors to Indict Officials for Mafia Ties, Ansa Says

July 24 (Bloomberg) -- Prosecutors in Palermo, Sicily, will seek the indictment of state officials for alleged ties to the mafia in the 1990s, Italian news service Ansa reported without saying where it got the information.

Prosecutors will submit to a judge the request to indict 12 people, including former ministers Nicola Mancino and Calogero Mannino, police officers and mafia bosses, Ansa said.

Mancino was interior minister at the time of anti-mafia prosecutor Paolo Borsellino’s assassination in 1992.

A spokesman for the prosecutors declined to comment on Ansa report, when contacted by Bloomberg.

Italy’s president, Giorgio Napolitano, last week asked the constitutional court to rule on the use of wiretaps between his office and Mancino. Napolitano said the wiretapping “harmed the prerogatives of the President as determined by the Constitution,” according to a July 16 statement.
