Totò Riina wanted to kill La Barbera, but the Madonia family stopped him. A phone call from prison revealed that the Madonia family had connections to the secret services and that La Barbera was off-limits. This information has become part of the trial against three police officers accused of obstructing justice in the investigation of the massacre in Via D’Amelio. Riina’s conversation sheds light on the mafia’s influence and control over law enforcement. This story was reported by Donata Calabrese in the Giornale di Sicilia.
