Bernardo Provenzano died 2 years ago in Italy. He was known “Boss of all bosses”. Born in Corleone, Sicily, he was an inspiration for Mario Puzo to write the famous Godfather novel. Bernardo was 83 years old when he died.

In 2006, he was finally arrested after 43 years of successfully escaping the police. He was sentenced to life in prison for a couple of crimes, including mass murder, drug trafficking, kidnapping, and much more.

He was put in a special prison, one that was designed to prevent mafia bosses to continue organize crime from their prison cells. His visits were limited, and there were also limitations in terms of activities and buying food for the prisoners.

Recently, the European Court of Human Rights proclaimed that his human rights were harmed during his last months. He was severely ill, suffering from Parkinson’s disease and cancer. Remaining in such a strict object was considered harming to his rights for human life.
