Prosecutors seek 20 years against Mob boss
Prosecutors demand up to 20 years in prison for Mob boss in maxi-Mafia trial
By The Associated Press

MILAN (AP) ' Italian prosecutors have demanded up to 20 years in prison for a mob boss and 15 other defendants in a huge Mafia trial in southern Italy.

The news agency ANSA says prosecutors have demanded guilty verdicts against 118 defendants in the trial, and are seeking the highest sentence against 81-year-old Domenico Oppedisano, the top boss of the 'ndrangheta crime syndicate, and 15 others.

The defendants are among 300 arrested in a crackdown on the powerful and expanding Calabrian mob in July 2010. Authorities also seized more than euro60 million ($83 million) in cash and property during raids in northern and southern Italy.



The defendants opted for a fast-track trial, under which sentences can be reduced by up to a third. Prosecutors say charges should be thrown out against two defendants.
