A member of the Democratic Alliance and Italian Republican Party in the 1990s before he joined the Democrats of the Left in 1998. He was known as an "anti-mafia" magistrate, and had functioned as an "anti-Mafia" judge. He raised doubts about whether it was only the Mafia that was involved in the killing of Giovanni Falcone.
In 1993 he published a book entitled La guerra dei giusti: I giudici, la mafia, la politica (The war of the righteous: The judges, the mafia, politics), detailing his experiences in politics and his encounters with the mafia.
