Arrestan a Messina Denaro, el “último padrino”

By Jordi Bou

January 17, 2023 - Se cree que el último “custodio de los secretos” de la Cosa Nostra guarda la clave de algunos de los crímenes más atroces perpetrados por la Mafia Siciliana

The arrest of Italy’s most-wanted Sicilian Mafia boss, ended a 30-year hunt for a gangster convicted in absentia of the 1992 murders of Italy’s two most famous anti-mafia prosecutors, and of other crimes.

For years, Messina Denaro had been a symbol of the state’s inability to reach the upper echelons of the organised crime syndicates.

Messina Denaro was a disciple of the Cosa Nostra’s most powerful 20th century boss, Salvatore “Totò” Riina, who was arrested 30 years ago and died in prison in 2017.

But on Monday, the most wanted mafioso in Italy was finally captured, seized in a private clinic in the Sicilian capital Palermo after police found out he was receiving treatment there for cancer.
