Extradition proceedings  will continue against a  mafia fugitive who was captured  on the Island of Malta after almost six years of running  from  a murder rap,reports

Magistrate  Aaron Bugeja ruled today that despite errors in the description of some of the crimes committed by  Sebastiano Brunno , a reputed Sicilian mafia  boss , the extradition proceedings as a whole are still valid.

Brunno is subject to an extradition request over a mafia-related murder. Yesterday, his lawyers argued that this request should be nullified, since it was based on a sentence that has been cancelled.

Mr Brunno was arrested last month in a joint operation involving Maltese and Sicilian police. He was living in hiding in a St Paul’s Bay apartment, using a false Italian ID that identified him as a 49-year-old man from Palermo.
