A post by Alessandro Di Battista published yesterday on social media ends up in court. The former president of the Sicilian Region, Salvatore Cuffaro, has announced a lawsuit against the former grillino. Yesterday, on the occasion of the anniversary of the Capaci massacre, ‘Dibba’ wrote that Cuffaro had been “sentenced for complicity outside the mafia”. But the former governor was convicted of aggravated aiding and abetting in Cosa Nostra. Today Di Battista has modified the post, but Cuffaro insists and announces: “Di Battista has admitted and corrected the error on the sentence – he writes on Facebook – and yet he does not correct the truth about my assault (which never occurred) against Judge Falcone” . The former politician, who served a seven-year sentence, talks about the TV episode of ‘Samarkand’, in which he had spoken. “You know well that on September 26, 1991, the undersigned attacked Dr. Taurisano because he was giving credibility to Spatola’s statements against Calogero Mannino – says the former president of the Sicilian Region – It was judge Paolo Borsellino who proved that Spatola was lying, so much so that the investigation conducted by Taurisano against Mannino was closed a few days after my intervention. Alessandro Di Battista knows well that even Antonio Di Pietro has already been condemned for statements similar to his own. So he continues in his rant, publicly accusing me of facts that do not correspond to the truth , with persistent and absolute bad faith. Tomorrow I will file a complaint with the Public Prosecutor of Palermo “.
