Giovanni Brusca, arguably the most brutal Sicilian Cosa Nostra killer and key witness in the judiciary, was released from prison after only 25 years in prison.
Oliver Mailer from Rome
“Pig” is free. Giovanni Brusca, whom they call “u verru” in Sicily, is perhaps the most brutal killer of Cosa Nostra in their long history of brutal killers. After 25 years in prison, he was released from the Repbia prison in Rome. He is now 64 years old and has served his sentence.
There were no cameras when Proska left the institution. As a major witness, the state also protects him from public view. Italy is angry about whether someone like Brusca should be allowed to release him simply because he worked with the judiciary and got a booking discount in return. U verru confessed to committing 150 murders. 25 years old just for that?
