Palazzolo was convicted of being a money launderer for the Mafia and allegedly “cleaned” millions of euros from drug trafficking and other crimes.

Palazzolo had been arrested in March 2012 by Thai immigration officials at the Bangkok International Airport as he was preparing to leave the country.

He had been sentenced in 2006 in Italy to nine years in prison for mafia association after laundering money for infamous mobsters including former Cosa Nostra chiefs Salvatore ‘Toto’ Riina and Bernardo Provenzano, who are now in prison.
