Italian police have arrested 29 suspects from the Commisso and Aquino clans of the 'Ndrangheta or Calabrian Mafia for their alleged roles in various schemes including "skimming between 1.5 and 3 per cent off public works contracts and also forcing butchers to buy beef from Mafia-connected farms" as reported by Peter Edwards for The Star.
Among those arrested is Antonio Coluccio, an alleged member of the Commisso clan, who was a resident of Toronto, ON Canada until 2010 when authorities booted his sorry ass back to the old country:
Coluccio's two older brothers Giuseppe and Salvatore are already in prison in Italy on Mafia-related charges. They are both former GTA [Greater Toronto Area] residents. His father-in-law, Carmelo Bruzzese is in custody in the GTA fighting deportation to Italy after being accused of Mafia-related offenses.
In April 2014 Commisso clan associate Carmine Verducci who "was also tightly tied to the Gambino Mafia family of New York City, according to police" was gunned down in the parking lot of a Woodbridge cafe outside Toronto as then reported by Peter Edwards for The Star.
The Calabrian Mafia is suspected of backing a breakaway group from the Rizzuto family with Cosa Nostra or the Sicilian Mafia in Montreal, QB for control over the drug rackets in Canada and New York, and the turf war has resulted in dozens of murders over the last few years.
Earlier this year Italian and American police arrested dozens of suspected mobsters on both sides of the Atlantic for their alleged roles in a joint drug smuggling plot between the Gambino family and the Calabrian Mafia.
