Italian politicians and relatives of victims of organized crime have voiced anger at a court ruling that opens the way for an ailing Mafia boss known as "The Beast" to be freed to "die with dignity". Salvatore "Toto" Riina, from the Sicilian hill town of Corleone made famous in "The Godfather" movies, was jailed in 1993 . Riina declared a "war against the state" and ordered the killings of magistrates Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino in 1992 . Leaders across the political spectrum agreed Riina should spend his final days in prison.
