Giuseppe Di Setola, heads the police's most wanted list. Despite his reputation for being the mob's top hitman

The suspected leader of the Casalesi murder squad, Giuseppe Di Setola, heads the police's most wanted list. Despite his reputation for being the mob's top hitman, Di Setola is still trying to convince police he is in fact blind, the DNA said. They said he had sent a letter to a local newspaper claiming to be an innocent bystander, accompanied by a photo showing him with a bandage over one eye and leaning on a walking stick. ''He's trying it on again,'' the DNA said. The brutal empire of the Casalesi was exposed in a book by writer and journalist Roberto Saviano, who said last week he would have to leave Italy to escape their threats.Camorra clan Italy has sent the army against is feeling ''hunted'' as turncoats desert it, Italian anti-Mafia police said on Monday. Hundreds of police and troops are stopping the Clan dei Casalesi from going about its business, the Anti-Mafia Directorate (DNA) in Naples said. ''They feel hunted and are having trouble on the ground,'' the DNA said.
Meanwhile, more and more important mobsters are turning state's evidence, the DNA said. Oreste Spagnuolo, one of a killing squad suspected in 15 murders over the last five months, ''inflicted a major blow'' to the clan when he decided to help the police earlier this month, investigators said. The DNA is confident of turning more Camorristi, they said. On Monday that another clan member, Emilio Di Caterino, had become an informant. Di Caterino and his wife and three children are already in the witness protection programme, it said.Six Nobel Prize winners - Dario Fo, Mikhail Gorbachev, Gunter Grass, Rita Levi Montalcini, Orhan Pamuk and Desmond Tutu - wrote an open letter to his newspaper La Repubblica on Monday. They urged the Italian state to do more to protect the author of 'Gomorra', saying ''it is intolerable for this to happen in Europe in 2008''.
