Powerful Palermo mafia clan dismantled
18 alleged members of the Resuttana clan arrested.
(ANSA) – ROME, JUL 10 – A Palermo judge on Monday issued arrest warrants against 18 alleged members of the influential Resuttana mafia clan.
The suspects are under investigation for alleged mafia association, extortion, drug trafficking, illegal possession of weapons, and violation of the obligation of special surveillance, among other crimes.
Sixteen people have been placed under pre-trial detention and two people under house arrest.
The investigation has dismantled one of the richest clans in the Sicilian regional capital.
“They have a city in their hands,” reportedly said one suspected mafioso while being wire-tapped, referring to the clan’s top management. (ANSA).
