1150 informants, 5909 receive protection in Italy

Deputy interior minister says the protected live in 'conflict'

Rome - Italy has 1,150 informants and 82 witnesses currently under interior ministry protection, Deputy Interior Minister Filippo Bubbico told the anti-mafia parliament commission on Thursday.
    The total receiving special security services rises to 5,909 when close relatives of the informants and witnesses are counted. "We are in a paradoxical situation. On the one hand, the State commits resources for the benefit of collaborators. On the other, the beneficiaries of the protection are unsatisfied with the services and live in a situation of conflict."
