"Given his state of health, my client claims the right to be acquitted before he dies. He has not the luxury to wait," thundered Danielle Roy, lawyer of Stefano Sollecito. The former interim leader of the mafia, who is fighting cancer, is seeking permission to be tried alone in a separate trial and in an earlier period.
Is that right? Is Stefano really dying of cancer?
I do not know the type or degree of cancer he has but it was serious enough for a judge to agree to let him out of jail so that he can have his treatments.
