The Italian magistrate was investigating organized crime when he was killed by a car bomb, along with five police bodyguards as he went to visit his mother. Courts have yet to get to the bottom of the killing..

Thirty years have passed since the Via D’Amelio massacre in Palermo, the one in which Paolo Borsellino was assassinated by the Mafia. At 4:58 p.m. on July 19, 1992, a car packed with TNT that was parked under the home of the magistrate’s mother exploded as the judge passed by, killing him along with the five escort officers.

To this day, not everything about the bombing has been uncovered. Who set off the bomb, or what happened to the red notebook that Borsellino always carried.

A few days ago, there was the ruling on the deception: the Caltanissetta court declared the charges against two of the three police officers charged as time-barred, while a third was acquitted. Dawn raid against Palermo clans: 9 people ended up in handcuffs.
