Napolitano says ready to testify on 'State-mafia talks'
But president stresses his 'limits on knowledge'31 October, 19:22
While giving his full availability in providing a contribution to verifying a court-decreed truth, "the president has at the same time presented to the court the limitations that exist on his actual knowledge" in relation to the issues on which he is being asked to testify about, the president's offices said in an official statement.
The court earlier this month accepted a prosecutor's request for Napolitano to be called to testify in the trial, even as it set limitations on what Napolitano can be asked to talk about. The court also accepted to call Senate Speaker and former national anti-Mafia prosecutor Pietro Grasso to testify, along with almost all of the prosecution's other witness requests.
