Cassation Court rules Cuffaro to stay in jail

Community service denied, application by ex-governor quashed

(ANSA) - Rome, October 6 - The Cassation Court, Italy's highest appeal court, on Monday ruled that Salvatore Cuffaro, Sicily's ex-governor serving a seven-year Mafia-related sentence, must remain in prison.
    The court rejected an application from his lawyer seeking to commute his jail time into community-service. No reasons were given for the denial but last year the same application was rejected by Rome's probation tribunal on the grounds that Cuffaro had not been cooperative during investigations.
