FBI on alert for biggest Mob reunionApril 26th, 2009 - 5:38 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 26 (ANI): The FBI is on alert for the biggest Mob reunion of all time with six of the world’s most powerful Mafia bosses due to be paroled within months of each other.
The big six mafia bosses are Domenico ‘Italian Dom’ Cefalu, George ‘Big Georgie’ DeCicco, Joseph ‘Joe C’ Caridi, Benedetto Aloi, Matthew ‘Matty the Horse’ Ianniello, and Anthony ‘Fat Anthony’ Rabito.
All of them held key roles in New York’s five criminal “families” before being jailed for racketeering, extortion, conspiracy to murder and loan sharking. At least a dozen more underlings will also be freed this year.
Agents fear the mass release will trigger an unprecedented gangster bloodbath as the bosses reclaim their old positions, the Daily Express reported.
One senior FBI officer said: “Six of the Mafia’s most notorious capos and under bosses are hitting the streets at around the same time, as well as many henchmen.
“First, we expect a brutal power struggle as they push aside the Wise Guys who stepped-up in their place. Then we anticipate a series of turf wars between the families. When the dust settles, with hierarchies re-established, it’s going to be back to business…big time.”
The Gambino, Bonanno, Colombo, Genovese and Luchese mobs have fallen into disarray over the past two years.
Rules of entry have been relaxed, with wannabe ’soldiers’ allowed in if they can prove even distant Italian ancestry and murder no longer a prerequisite. (ANI)
