  • Правоохоронці заарештували ватажка Cosa Nostra

About this reported "UNIAN" with reference to ANSA.

The 46 others could face charges of belonging to the mafia, extortion and illegal possession of arms amongst others.

It should be noted that the last time the mafia was going through a hard period of reorganization that is associated with a long absence of rigid centralized management.

The purported jeweller allegedly became the new head of the Cosa Nostra after previous boss Salvatore "Toto" Riina, also known as "the beast" and the "boss of all bosses", died in prison past year.

In recent years police have hit the Cosa Nostra network hard, but it has been trying to rebuild its leadership, Italian media report.

Palermo prosecutor Francesco Lo Voi told journalists that the Cupola meeting was identified thanks to phone taps and that the main topic at the meeting had been "rules".

Italy's chief anti-Mafia prosecutor, Federico Cafiero de Raho, said the election of Mineo, 80, was significant because it showed that the center of power of Cosa Nostra had shifted to Palermo.

Le point sur les fermetures et annulations d'événements samedi — "Gilets jaunes"

"These people, despite being heads of families, were kept outside because only regional bosses could take part".

Colletti reportedly rejoiced in the resurrected Cupola, which was to be an improvement on Riina's "tyranny". In 1992 two leading prosecutors, Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, were blown up in Mafia hits.

Mineo was again arrested on mob-related charges in 2006 and was released a year ago.

It was the first such gathering of the powerful Palermo clans since their previous leader, Salvatore "Toto" Riina, was arrested in 1993 and convicted of ordering dozens of murders.

The country's deputy prime minister Luigi di Maio, announcing the arrests, said they "represent one of the biggest blows inflicted on the mafia by the state". "There is no more room for this type of scum in Italy".

Mineo survived a 1992 ambush that killed his brother Giuseppe, around six months after another brother, Antonino, was murdered outside the family jewelry shop.

Falcone was murdered in a massive vehicle bombing in 1992.
