'Mafia' jail to close
Sunday 25 September 1994
SASSARI - The high-security prison island of Asinara, off Sardinia, which houses some of Italy's most feared criminals, will be turned into a national park next year, Environment Minister Altero Mattioli said. The jail, whose residents include the Mafia godfather Salvatore 'Toto' Riina, would be closed down by the end of 1995, he said. The plan has angered the island's inhabitants, where the jails are the only employers, as well as anti-Mafia officials who do not want the criminals transferred to less remote prisons. Reuter
