'Ndrangheta mobsters Rocco Medici and Giuseppe Furina were tortured and murdered in 1984 upon the alleged orders of reputed boss Liborio Benvenuto -- "Medici's ears were cut off before both bodies were dumped in the Murrumbidgee River near the Calabrian mafia stronghold of Griffith in New South Wales" -- and now Australian police have learned that the supposed hitman "is still alive and living in Melbourne" as reported by Keith Moor for the Herald Sun.
Australian authorities have been aware of the 'Ndrangheta's presence in the early 1960s during a turf war among rival clans, and notwithstanding repeated investigations over the next fifty years little has been done to bring down the crime group.
Of course, a little corruption apparently goes a long way in Australia. A 1991 report by the Australian Bureau of Criminal Intelligence states that Mafia members or their relatives "have achieved a high degree of influence with, and even infiltrated, federal and state government departments, the judiciary and various law enforcement bodies."
Remember, organized crime cannot exist without public corruption.
