Italian pizza maker a mafia boss!

The Hague, May 19

Dutch police have arrested a fugitive Italian mafia boss known in the Netherlands more for his lip-smacking pizzas than his links to organised crime, local media and prosecutors said today.

Prosecutors confirmed to AFP that an “important figure” within the Ndrangheta clan and wanted by Italian authorities had been arrested on May 12 in The Hague’s seaside suburb of Scheveningen after living in the country for about 15 years.

The mafia boss had been sentenced by Italian judges to 14 years and eight months in prison for fraud and drug-smuggling.
