Wow, an extra 21 years. I guess they want to make an example out of him.

The Italian justice system is complicated, but I think he already served most of this sentence this ruling was just a confirmation of his earlier sentence.
This was the final stage of the police crackdown code-named "Carthaginian" that led to five tonnes of cocaine being seized in March 1994 and the dismantling of the C untrera Caruana clan.
The other process could result in additional years, otherwise he will be out in 2019.
