ROME Texas Rangers Throwback Jersey , July 19 (Xinhua) -- Twenty-five years after he was killed by mobsters, top anti-mafia judge Paolo Borsellino was commemorated with various initiatives across Italy on Wednesday.
Italian President Sergio Mattarella led a special ceremony to honor the slain magistrate at the High Council of the Judiciary (CSM) in Rome, appealing for a "a final word of justice" in the long path to identity and condemn masterminds and authors of his killing.
"Borsellino fought the mafia with resolution, convinced as he was that the mafia is not an ineluctable evil, but a criminal phenomenon that can be defeated," Mattarella told the CSM.
The president also stressed that "too many uncertainties and mistakes have accompanied the search for truth on this slaughter Toronto Blue Jays Throwback Jersey , and still many questions about those responsible for his heinous killing are open."
Paolo Borsellino was killed on July 19, 1992, in a car bombing in Palermo, along with five police officers of his escort.
"His tragic death, along with the deaths of those escorting him, still awaits a final word of justice Authentic Chicago Cubs Jersey ," Mattarella told the CSM.
Borsellino's murder occurred 57 days after the killing of fellow top anti-mafia magistrate Giovanni Falcone, in a similar bomb on a motorway in Sicily.
Borsellino and Falcone had developed new methods of investigating the mafia since the early 1980s, reaching unprecedented results against what was the most powerful crime syndicate at the time: the Sicilian mob, or "Cosa Nostra."
Their murders represented the most brutal attack by the Sicilian mafia against Italy's state and judiciary, and marked one of the darkest moments in the country's recent history.
Commemorating Borsellino in Parliament on Wednesday, Senate Speaker Pietro Grasso -- a former anti-mafia prosecutor himself -- told lawmakers: "We have defeated the 'Cosa Nostra' violent and bloodthirsty Authentic Baltimore Orioles Jersey , but not that (part of) mafia that is able to change its skin and disappear from the public opinion's eye, and to infiltrate all levels of Italian society," he warned.
As is common on this date, several events to honor Borsellino's life were held by anti-mafia and civil society groups across Italy.
Key celebrations were planned in Palermo, Sicily's regional capital where the magistrate was born and began his career in the judiciary.
Citizens, national and local politicians Authentic Atlanta Braves Jersey , and public officers marched through the street where Borsellino was killed.
Besides achieving results in the fight against the economic and criminal power of the three major mafia organizations operating in the country -- Cosa Nostra, Naples-based Camorra, and Calabrian 'Ndrangheta -- Italy has seen stronger anti-mafia awareness develop in its civil society.
However, the full truth about the slaughter of Borsellino has yet to be discovered, according to both his relatives and major anti-mafia experts.
Three trials have been held since 1994, resulting in some 47 people being convicted in connection with his murder.
A fourth trial began in 2013 Authentic Arizona Diamondbacks Jersey , after new allegations by a mafia informer on the true masterminds and deep reasons behind the slaughter of the magistrate.
This first-grade trial ended in April 2017. Two mafia bosses were sentenced to life in prison for being among the perpetrators, and another two mobsters to 10 years in jail for giving testimonies that misled previous investigations.
Some aspects of Borsellino's murder (as much as of Falcone's), however, have remained a mystery so far.
These include the disappearance of the red diary in which Borsellino used to write down details of his work during the year of his death.

CHICAGO Authentic Boston Red Sox Jersey , July 1 (Xinhua) -- Local police arrested a man Friday evening for kidnapping Zhang Yingying, a visiting Chinese scholar at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in the U.S. Midwest.
Brendt Christensen, a resident of Champaign who turned 28 on Friday, was charged with kidnapping Zhang, who authorities believe to be dead.
Christensen will remain in law enforcement custody pending his initial federal court appearance in Urbana scheduled on Monday.
Zhang, 26 Authentic Chicago White Sox Jersey , went missing on June 9 after she got into a black Saturn Astra car about five blocks from where she got off a bus as she was heading to an apartment complex to sign a lease. She had just arrived at the University of Illinois in late April.
When FBI agents first talked to Christensen, who owns one of the 18 four-door Saturn Astra cars registered in Champaign County, he said he was either sleeping or playing video games at home when Zhang went missing.
However, later when police reviewed the surveillance video footage of Zhang's last appearance, it was found the vehicle which Zhang entered had a cracked hubcap on the front passenger side, which matched Christensen's car and made the FBI put him under surveillance.
According to the federal charging document Authentic Cincinnati Reds Jersey , Christensen in April visited via his smartphone two sub-threads entitled "perfect abduction fantasy" and "planning a kidnapping."
"While Christensen was under law enforcement surveillance, agents overheard him explaining that he kidnapped Zhang," the FBI press release said.
"Based on this, and other facts uncovered during the investigation of this matter, law enforcement agents belieCreating Your Brand Through Rewarding.
