Político, abogado, profesor universitario y escritor, Leoluca Orlando es un mito en Italia, no solo por su lucha contra la mafia en Palermo (Sicilia), sino por haberse elegido como alcalde por quinta vez (en diversos periodos), y asumir otra tarea titánica: persuadir a la Unión Europea sobre la libre circulación de los inmigrantes, ofreciendo a su pueblo, como modelo de integración para otras ciudades que deben afrontar la crisis migratoria en Europa.

Behind the Mafia stereotype in Montreal

Nov 18 2008 / Published in Crónicas

In the beginning of November 2006 Canadian authorities arrested 100 people who were charged with offences ranging from drug trafficking, conspiracy and money laundering to gangsterism. Among those arrested were several that alleged to be high-ranking members of the Rizzuto clan. This arrest was just the tip of the iceberg. In October 2008, authorities revealed the Operation Colisee, a massive four-year police investigation, with a million hours of wiretap evidence that hit the presumed patriarch of Montreal’s mafia and five associates who pleaded guilty to gangsterism-related charges.
