Italian police catches one of most dangerous Cosa Nostra members
The Italian authorities have been looking for the man since 2016 for involvement in a triple murder in the north of the country.
On Friday, October 5, the Italian police arrested one of the most wanted members of the Cosa Nostra group in Sicily. His name is not disclosed, but the European Police Agency (Europol), which provided support for the operation to detain the suspect, indicated his initials as V.M.
Also, Europol clarified that the detainee is the son of one of the prominent members of Cosa Nostra, for whom the Italian authorities have been looking since 2016. Two years ago, the man became a suspect of involvement in a triple murder in the north of the country, committed in 2006.
It is to be noted that this operation was the fifth in the framework of the Italian project called Eurosearch, aimed at apprehending dangerous members of the European mafia groups.
In February of this year, a large-scale special operation was conducted in Italy to counteract the influential Ndrangheta clan operating in the region of Calabria.
The release of authoritative thief-in-law Tariel Oniani (Taro) became a milestone event for the criminal world. The conflict with followers of Ded Khasan was put on hold for the duration of his almost 10-year-old prison term – the rival parties were waiting for the first steps of Taro. However, the law enforcement authorities decided to procrastinate the intrigue further and detained the crowned thief for 40 days immediately after his release. Still, taking that ‘thief № 1’ Shakro Molodoy is serving a prison term, his successor Shishkan keeps low profile, while other thieves-in-law are either abroad or disorganized, Taro has a chance to reassert himself as a serious power.
