Mobster looks like a lady!
Luciano Aviello, a jailed member from the Mariano clan of the Camorra or Neapolitan Mafia who is undergoing a sex change, showed up in a dress in court to testify that American citizen Amanda Knox is innocent of the 2007 murder of her British roommate Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy, and that his missing brother Antonio is responsible for the killing during a botched burglary as reported by the Independent.
Aviello is not the first tranny mobster.
In 2009 Italian police arrested Camorra capo Ugo Gabriele a/k/a Kitty for allegedly running a drugs and prostitution racket as then reported by Nick Squires for The Telegraph:
His police mugshot shows him to be heavy set, with broad shoulders and a double chin. But there is also an incongruous feminine touch -- carefully sculpted eyebrows, blonde highlights in his hair and a light dab of lipstick.
And it's not just a European thing.
