Arrest puts under the spotlight Italy-Colombia drug connection

The Colombian Police arrested today in Bogota Mr Roberto Pannuzzi, a boss of the Italian organized crime.

The Colombian Minister of Defense in person stated that Mr Pannuzzi was ‘the most wanted man in the country’. Mr Pannuzzi was also wanted by Italy and by the Interpol.

It is no secret, of course, that Italian organized crime has a core business in drug trafficking, as it was amply explained in the books by Roberto Saviano.

However, it is significant that in a country like Colombia, plagued by drug trafficking and a low intensity civil war, the most wanted criminal is an Italian.

The Colombian Government is ready to extradite Mr Pannuzzi to Italy.
