Italian court says former prime minister was victim of extortion by Cosa Nostra in the 1970s The former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi paid large sums of money to the Sicilian mafia to protect himself and his family from kidnapping in the mid-1970s, Italy's highest appeals court has said. Cosa Nostra's protection "was not free", the court said, adding that the media magnate had been a victim of extortion. "Berlusconi handed over conspicuous sums of money to the mafia," the supreme court of cassation said in a 146-page document explaining its decision last month to quash a trial against Marcello Dell'Utri, a Sicilian who worked for Berlusconi during those years. In the 1970s, Italian criminal organisations frequently kidnapped wealthy people or their children, often in the richer northern regions of the country, and held them for ransom. The most notorious case was that of John Paul Getty III, the grandson of the oil baron John Paul Getty Sr, who was kidnapped in central ...

    More Details Hide Details
  • THIRTIES
  • 1987
    Age 30
    By 1987, however, a daily regime of exercise, physiotherapy and speech therapy during which he reportedly showed "extraordinary willpower," had helped him regain some degree of autonomy.
    More Details Hide Details He could again visit concerts and cinema, and was even able to ski, when strapped to a metal frame.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1981
    Age 24
    Getty was an alcoholic and drug addict. In 1981, he imbibed a valium, methadone, and alcohol cocktail which caused liver failure and a stroke, leaving him a quadriplegic and nearly blind.
    More Details Hide Details He never fully recovered and remained severely handicapped for the rest of his life.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1975
    Age 18
    Getty was 18 years old when his son, Balthazar, was born in 1975. The couple divorced in 1993.
    More Details Hide Details Getty tried his hand at acting in European films: he played supporting parts in Raúl Ruiz' The Territory and in Wim Wenders's The State of Things, which was shot at the same time as Ruiz's film, using part of its cast and crew.
  • 1974
    Age 17
    In 1974, Getty married German Gisela Martine Zacher (née Schmidt), who was five months pregnant.
    More Details Hide Details He had known her and her twin sister Jutta since before his kidnapping.
  • 1973
    Age 16
    Getty III was found alive in a filling station of Lauria, in the province of Potenza, on 15 December 1973, shortly after the ransom was paid.
    More Details Hide Details Nine of the kidnappers were apprehended, including a carpenter, an hospital orderly, an ex-con and an olive-oil dealer from Calabria, as well as high-ranking members of the 'Ndrangheta — a Mafia-type organization in Calabria — such as Girolamo Piromalli and Saverio Mammoliti. Two were convicted and sent to prison; the others, including the 'Ndrangheta bosses, were acquitted for lack of evidence. Most of the ransom money was never recovered. In 1977, Getty had an operation to rebuild the ear that had been cut off by his kidnappers. A. J. Quinnell used Getty's kidnapping as one piece of inspiration for his book Man on Fire.
    At 3 a.m. on 10 July 1973, Getty, then age 16, was kidnapped in the Piazza Farnese in Rome.
    More Details Hide Details A ransom note was received, demanding $17 million in exchange for his safe return. When that ransom message arrived, some family members suspected the kidnapping was merely a ploy by the rebellious youngster as he had frequently joked about staging his own kidnapping to extract money from his frugal grandfather. He was blindfolded and imprisoned in a mountain hideout. A second demand was received, but had been delayed by an Italian postal strike. John Paul Getty, Jr. asked his father for the money, but was refused. Getty Sr. argued that were he to pay the ransom, then his 14 other grandchildren could also be kidnapped. In November 1973, an envelope containing a lock of hair and a human ear was delivered to a daily newspaper with a threat of further mutilation of Paul, unless $3.2 million was paid: "This is Paul's ear. If we don't get some money within 10 days, then the other ear will arrive. In other words, he will arrive in little bits."
  • 1971
    Age 14
    In early 1971, he was expelled from St. Georges after having painted the hallways of the school one night, taking inspiration from Charles Manson's Helter Skelter.
    More Details Hide Details Later that year, his stepmother died of a heroin overdose in Rome. While his father moved back to England, he remained in Italy, where he lived a bohemian life, frequented nightclubs, and took part in left-wing demonstrations. Endowed with a considerable artistic inclination, he reportedly earned a living making jewelry, selling paintings and appearing as an extra in movies.
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1964
    Age 7
    Getty spent most of his childhood in Rome, Italy, while his father headed the Italian division for the Getty family's oil business. His parents divorced in 1964 and his father married again in 1966 to model and actress Talitha Pol.
    More Details Hide Details They adopted a hippie lifestyle and spent much time in England and Morocco during the 1960s. Getty stayed in boarding school at St. George's English School (later St. George's British International School), in Rome.
