Finance police from the command of  Calabria have arrested 13 alleged members of a mafia driven drug organization, accused of trafficking  large loads  of cocaine from South America into Italy through the port Gioia Tauro

After a long prosecutors probe dubbed ”Puerto   Liberadi ” , police dragged away in handcuffs 13 out of 61 suspects  involved in drug trafficking and seized 4 tons  of pure cocaine worth a  staggering street value of  800 million euros.

A ‘Ndrangheta mafia drug gang used well paid workers on their payroll in the port of Gioia Tauro, to evade police checks, and import cocaine from South America, and distribute the drug to dealers across Europe.

 

The gang  gave the workers an alphanumeric code, which enabled them to identify the ship and the container with the cocaine at the port.

Among the arrested was   ex-port worker Giuseppe Brandimarte, considered   well- connected to  the  ‘Ndrangheta, with an important role in the drug operation

TORONTO — An international alert accusing a man living north of Toronto of being a mob boss went ignored by Canadian police because Canada does not recognize the crime of Mafia association, the tool used by the Italian government to tackle powerful organized crime groups, an immigration hearing heard Wednesday.

A warrant was issued in Italy for the arrest of Carmelo Bruzzese and registered with Interpol, the international police agency, on April 30, 2012, but he was not arrested even though local police agencies knew where he was living in Canada with his Canadian wife. He had even had interaction with police.

The Sicilian Mafia tapped the telephone calls of judge PaoloBorsellino before slaying  him, top boss Totò Riina told a fellow prison  inmate in a conversation recorded by the authorities, ANSA sources said.

Borsellino was blown up and killed by a car bomb near his mother’s house along with five members of his security escort in July 1992. “We knew he was meant to go there because he said, ‘Mum, tomorrow I’m coming,’” said Riina, who is believed  to be  boss of  the Cosa Nostra from the early 1980s until he was arrested in 1993.

Borsellino is considered a  champion of justice, a  judicial  martyr of sorts , and symbol of the Italian State’s battle against Cosa Nostra, along with  his friend and fellow anti-Mafia magistrate Giovanni Falcone, who was assassinated by Cosa Nostra 57 days before him.
