    Italian mafia boss escapes from Uruguayan prison

    By Tatiana Arias and Eliza Mackintosh

    An Italian mafia boss has escaped from a detention center in Uruguay, where he was awaiting extradition to Italy, the Uruguayan Ministry of Interior said in a statement.

    Rocco Morabito, a notorious member of the Ndrangheta, or Calabrian Mafia, has been one of Italy's most-wanted fugitives since 1994.

    Morabito was arrested in 2017 in Uruguay after more than 20 years on the run. Convicted in absentia for drug trafficking and organized-crime activities in Italy, he was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

    The drug kingpin and three other inmates managed to break out of the National Institute of Rehabilitation (INR) in Montevideo through a hole and out onto the rooftop of the building late on Sunday night. The group robbed a nearby farmhouse before fleeing, according to the ministry.

    "Among the fugitives is the Italian Rocco Morabito, who was waiting for his extradition by the Italian justice being investigated for international drug trafficking," the statement said.

    Interpol has issued a red notice -- its highest-priority international arrest warrant -- for all four escapees. One of the fugitives is pending extradition to Brazil, and another to Argentina.

    In a statement on Twitter, Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said it was disconcerting that a criminal like Morabito had managed to escape from a prison in Uruguay while waiting to be extradited to Italy. He pledged to get to the bottom of the escape, and to "keep hunting Morabito, wherever he is, to throw him in jail as he deserves."

    When Morabito was arrested in 2017, Italian Interior Minister Marco Minniti said he was "considered one of the sought-after members of the Ndrangheta."

    Authorities said Morabito -- one of Italy's five most-wanted fugitives -- entered Uruguay in 2001 using false Brazilian identification papers including a bogus birth certificate. He lived in a comfortable rural villa near the town of Maldonado, adjacent to the resort city of Punta del Este, for about a decade.

    When he was arrested, Morabito had 13 cell phones, an automatic pistol, 12 credit and debit cards, a large quantity of Uruguayan money and $50,000 in US cash, plus currency certificates worth US $100,000, the Uruguayan Interior Ministry said.

    In a search of Morabito's home, authorities seized a 2015 Mercedes and a Portuguese passport in his false Brazilian name. His wife -- an Angolan national with a Portuguese passport -- was also arrested, authorities said.

    And now the murder of the Gambino leader gets weird

    Lawyer says suspect in mob boss killing believed he was on mission from Trump

    A New York man charged with murdering the alleged boss of the Gambino Mafia family believed he was carrying out a mission on behalf of President Trump, his lawyer said in court documents, according to The New York Times.

    Anthony Comello of Staten Island allegedly shot and killed Francesco "Frankie Boy" Cali outside Cali's home in March, which law enforcement initially suspected was the opening salvo in a turf war after decades of relative peace between New York's five major families.

    However, according to a filing from his attorney, Robert C. Gottlieb, Comello was not affiliated with the Mafia. Instead, he believed Cali was an agent of the "deep state" and that he was authorized by Trump to arrest him. Gottlieb said Comello had brought handcuffs with him and shot Cali only after he refused to submit to a citizen's arrest and reached for his waistband.

    Gottlieb, who sought to prove in the filing that Comello was not liable by reason of insanity, wrote that his client was a subscriber to the "QAnon" conspiracy theory, which claims that Trump is secretly working against a powerful network of pedophiles who control world institutions, according to the Times.

    "Mr. Comello's support for 'QAnon' went beyond mere participation in a radical political organization," Gottlieb wrote. "It evolved into a delusional obsession."

    Comello reportedly had planned to conduct several citizen's arrests of people he believed to be in on the conspiracy, including New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) on two separate occasions.

    Gottlieb wrote that his client also contacted federal marshals at Manhattan's Federal District Court to ask them to aid him in capturing Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), believing they were nearby, according to the Times. Law enforcement confirmed both incidents.

    How Comello came to believe the Mafia was also connected to the conspiracy theory, which generally focuses on prominent Democratic politicians or liberal figures, remains unclear, according to the Times.

    As expected, when the battle for death penalty is over, antis go in force after life imprisonment without parole.

    European court says Italy's prison regime for mafiosi and murderers breaches human rights

    By Nick Squires
    The Telegraph

    Italy has reacted angrily to a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights that it should relax conditions for prisoners serving life sentences, including mafia gangsters and terrorists.

    The court in Strasbourg ruled that Italy’s tough prison regime, applied to mobsters and other criminals who refuse to cooperate with the justice system, is inhuman and degrading.

    The court’s decision will affect around 1,000 inmates in Italy’s prisons, more than half of whom have been behind bars for more than 20 years.

    Politicians, anti-mafia investigators and victims’ relatives criticised the court’s ruling, saying it represented a “gift to the mafia”.

    They said the existing tough regime helped persuade the country’s most hardened criminals, including mafia bosses, to turn “pentito” or informer in return for privileges such as day release and, in some cases, being allowed to serve out the remainder of their sentence under house arrest.

    Softening conditions would undermine the battle against organised crime and terrorism.

    "You must be joking. If you go hand in hand with the mafia, if you destroy the lives of whole families and innocent people, you do prison according to certain rules,” said Luigi di Maio, the foreign minister and head of the Five Star Movement, one half of the ruling coalition. “No prison time taken off, no conditional liberty. You pay, full stop.”

    Federico Cafiero De Raho, the head of the Anti-Mafia and Anti-Terrorism Directorate, said: “The only thing that mafiosi are scared of is the threat of life imprisonment. Their only glimmer of hope is to collaborate.”

    Matteo Salvini, the leader of the hard-Right, Eurosceptic League party and now effectively head of the opposition, called the ruling “the umpteenth crazy decision from the Strasbourg Court, to the detriment of Italy."

    He said: “We need to be nicer to lifers, mafiosi and assassins? Never. As far as I’m concerned, life imprisonment for the worst delinquents should be untouchable.”

    Italy introduced uncompromising prison regimes for mafia killers in the 1980s and 1990s, after an upsurge in violence by the mob, including Cosa Nostra’s 1992 assassination of two leading investigators in Sicily, Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino.

    Mafia prisoners who do not cooperate with the authorities are not allowed to communicate with the outside world because it is feared they may continue to direct the criminal activities of their clan or family.

    “If someone has not shown signs of reform then the prisoner is considered to be still part of the mafia,” said Nicola Morra, the president of the government’s Anti-mafia Commission. “The judges in Strasbourg have made a big error.”

    The court’s ruling revolved around the case of a convicted boss, Marcello Viola, a member of the ‘Ndrangheta mafia from Calabria in the far south of the country.

    He was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1999 after been found guilty of multiple murders, robbery and kidnapping.

    He was placed on the toughest prison regime in 2005 after investigators said he was trying to maintain contact with the ‘Ndrangheta, a name which derives from a Greek word for heroism or manly virtue.

    He has always refused to cooperate with investigators or to divulge information on other mafia gangsters, for which he has been denied privileges such as day passes.

    Viola was involved in a bloody feud between rival clans around the town of Taurianova in Calabria.

    He is nicknamed “the Surgeon Boss” because he took a degree in medicine while behind bars.

    The Strasbourg court did not call for the release of Viola but it did order Italy to pay him €6,000 in legal costs.

    “We absolutely do not agree with the ruling,” said Alfonso Bonafede, the minister of justice. “Our position is that any prisoner asking for privileges must show that they are willing to collaborate.”

    Leaders And Members Of Mafia Family Convicted Of Murder, Racketeering, And Other Crimes

    Department of Justice
    U.S. Attorney’s Office

    Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced that MATTHEW MADONNA, STEVEN L. CREA, CHRISTOPHER LONDONIO, and TERRENCE CALDWELL, were convicted today, after a six-week jury trial, of murder, conspiracy to commit racketeering, and other felonies. Fifteen other defendants have previously pled guilty to related charges.

    U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said: “The violent and disturbing acts of these four organized crime figures included the brutal murder of associate Michael Meldish. Fittingly, all four defendants have been found guilty of their heinous acts of fraud, extortion, and murder on the six-year anniversary of Meldish’s death. Thanks to the outstanding investigative work of the FBI and NYPD, we will continue our commitment to making organized crime a thing of a bygone era.”

    According to the evidence presented at trial, and other court documents:

    Until his arrest in this case, MADONNA was the Acting Boss of the Luchese Family of La Cosa Nostra, one of the “Five Families” that constitute the Mafia in the New York City area.

    In 2013, MADONNA became displeased with Michael Meldish, a longtime organized crime associate who had refused to collect debts owed to MADONNA. MADONNA ordered Meldish killed, leading to Meldish’s murder on this date six years ago.

    As the Acting Boss of the Family, MADONNA also received payments from a host of other illegal activities, including the extortion of labor union members, loansharking, illegal gambling operations, and drug-trafficking.

    CREA is the official Underboss, or second-in-command, of the Luchese Family. As the Underboss, he participated in MADONNA’s decision to kill Meldish, and relayed the order to lower-ranking members of the Family.

    As a member of the Family’s leadership, or “administration,” CREA also profited from the same illegal activities as MADONNA. CREA was personally involved in several criminal schemes, including fraud and extortion in a large construction project at a public hospital, the extortion of one of his subordinates, and ordering the assault of a relative.

    LONDONIO is a made member of the Luchese Family. Acting under the orders of MADONNA and CREA, LONDONIO helped setup Meldish—a personal friend of LONDONIO’s—to be killed, and acted as the getaway driver for the murder.

    LONDONIO also carried firearms and other weapons, beat an associate of a rival crime family with a baseball bat, and personally participated in extortion, operating illegal gambling businesses, and drug-trafficking, among other crimes.

    CALDWELL is an associate of the Luchese Family, who participated in its crimes but was not formally inducted as a member. On May 29, 2013, CALDWELL ambushed a member of the rival Bonanno Family in Manhattan.

    CALDWELL fired several shots into the victim’s car at close range and struck him once in the chest, but the victim survived.

    On November 15, 2013, CALDWELL carried out MADONNA’s and CREA’s orders to kill Michel Meldish. CALDWELL met Meldish and drove with him to a Bronx neighborhood to meet LONDONIO. As Meldish got out of his car, CALDWELL shot him once in the head, killing him instantly. CALDWELL then drove off with LONDONIO.

    MADONNA, 84, of the Bronx, New York; CREA, 72, of Crestwood, New York; LONDONIO, 45, of Hartsdale, New York; and CALDWELL, 61, of Manhattan, New York, were each found guilty of one count of racketeering conspiracy, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison; conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering, which carries a maximum sentence of ten years in prison; murder in aid of racketeering, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of life in prison; and use of a firearm in furtherance of murder in aid of racketeering, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison and a maximum sentence of life in prison.

    CREA was acquitted of one count of attempted murder and assault in aid of racketeering and one count of use of a firearm in furtherance of attempted murder and assault in aid of racketeering.

    LONDONIO was also found guilty of one count of conspiracy to distribute narcotics, which carries a maximum sentence of twenty years in prison. LONDONIO was acquitted of one count of attempting to escape from the Metropolitan Detention Center.

    CALDWELL was also found guilty of one count of attempted murder in aid of racketeering, which carries a maximum sentence of twenty years in prison, and one count of discharging a firearm in furtherance of attempted murder in aid of racketeering, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years in prison and a maximum sentence of life in prison.

    Mr. Berman praised the outstanding investigative work of the FBI, the NYPD, the Department of Homeland Security Homeland Security Investigations, the Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor, and the Bureau of Prisons.

    The case is being handled by the Office’s White Plains Division. Assistant United States Attorneys Hagan Scotten, Celia V. Cohen, Alexandra N. Rothman, Scott Hartman, and Jaqueline Kelly are in charge pf the prosecution; paralegal specialist Shannon Becker provided additional support.

    Francisco Rosado had ties to the Italian Mafia and the Aryan Brotherhood

    Leader of Bronx biker gang shot dead Saturday in apparent hit

    By Larry Celona and Kenneth Garger
    New York Post

    The leader of a Bronx motorcycle gang was shot dead Saturday in what is believed to be a targeted hit, sources said.

    Francisco Rosado, 51, who headed the Bronx chapter of the Pagans Motorcycle Club, was gunned down by two masked men on Holland Avenue near Mace Avenue in Allerton at about 3:20 p.m., according to law enforcement sources.

    The suspects fled in a blue Jeep Cherokee with stolen license plates, sources said.

    Rosado was struck in the head and chest and declared dead at the scene, police said.

    As of Sunday night, no arrests had been made in the deadly shooting.

    The Pagans operate all along the East Coast with over 1,000 members. The biker gang has a hand in drugs, tattoo parlors, strip clubs and junkyards.
