Messina Daro, Godfather of the Mafia, in ‘Serious’ Health Condition

Godfather of Sicilian Mafia’s Health Serious Due to Cancer

The state of health of the godfather of the Sicilian mafia, Matteo Messina Denaro, is serious due to the cancer he suffers from, a doctor from the clinic where he was captured has reported. According to Vittori Gebbia, head of the oncology department at the Maddalena clinic in Palermo, Matteo Messina Denaro underwent surgery in 2020 and then in 2022 for colon cancer.

Gebbia added that such a slight delay of his scheduled chemotherapy cycle won’t affect his state of health, which is why police took him away. After his arrest in Palermo, Matteo Messina Denaro was transferred to a high security prison in L’Aquila, Abruzzo, central Italy, where he is being held in an isolated cell.

The Corriere della Sera newspaper reported that he will receive chemotherapy treatment at the San Salvatore Hospital in L’Aquila, which has a unit for prisoners. Paolo Guido, prosecutor in the case, had earlier assured that Matteo Messina Denaro is “in good health”. (afp)
