After four years on the run,  Leo “Lillo” Caridi, the  reputed ranking  boss of the ‘Ndrangheta clan ” Caridi-Borghetto-Zindato”, was    brought back to Italy from Switzerland  by Italian and Interpol police

Caridi  was arrested in  2011 in operation   “High Voltage 2”  along with  numerous  criminal characters  including Giuseppe Plutino, Councilor PDL Reggio Calabria , a political powerhouse  considered in cahoots with  the ‘Ndrangheta

The investigation arose from information  supplied by  two Mafia turncoats who revealed the  collusive relations  between politicians and  the ‘Calabrian Ndrangheta

Caridi served two years in prison but was released without supervision during the course of the trial and disappeared for shelter in Switzerland because he was  disheartened by the Italian courts, said his lawyer

Interpol police eventually tracked him down  to a location in Switzerland and alerted Italian police who secured  Caridi’s extradition to Italy.  The fugitive mafia boss arrived at Fiumicino    airport in  Rome  on Friday.
