Rocco Mobster, who has been on the run for 28 years finally arrives in Rome

Rocco Morabito is a member of the ‘Ndrangheta, a Mafia-type organization in Calabria, and an Italian criminal. Before being arrested in Uruguay on 4 September 2017, he had been a fugitive since 1994 being wanted for drug trafficking, Mafia association, and other serious crimes.

After 28 years on the run, Italy’s second-most wanted mobster arrives in Rome.

Mobster Rocco Morabito, one of Italy’s most wanted individuals, has arrived in Rome after being extradited from Brazil, where he had been hiding.

Morabito, who was dubbed the “cocaine king of Milan,” was taken into custody by Brazilian and Italian police in May of last year during a combined operation.

The 55-year-old will spend 30 years in prison for distributing drugs.

The mafia boss used a false identity while hiding underground in South America for decades.

He was finally located by police last year in Joo Pessoa, a port city in northeastern Brazil, where he was detained alongside Vincenzo Pasquino, another Ndrangheta mafia member. Since then, Pasquino has been given a 17-year prison term for narcotics trafficking.

The arrival of Rocco Morabito in Rome ends a decades-long manhunt.

As part of an Interpol-led multinational police operation aimed at combatting the ‘Ndrangheta, he was finally tracked down to a hotel in the city of João Pessoa in 2021.

Brazil’s federal supreme court authorized his extradition to Italy last week.

Rocco Morabito Career, What is his profession?

At the age of 25, he was living in Milan, where he mixed with the city’s youthful, wild jet set while serving as his uncle Domenico Antonio Mollica’s right-hand man, another significant Morabito clan boss.

Morabito earned the moniker “cocaine king of Milan” due to his role in smuggling cocaine from South America to Italy.

As a result of the “Fortaleza” operation, which involved the trafficking of more than 600 kg of cocaine between Brazil and Italy, Morabito received a 30-year prison sentence in 1994.

Since police detected him under surveillance in October 1994 paying 13 billion lire ($8 million) to import almost a tonne of cocaine, he has been on the run.

On May 24, 2021, Morabito was apprehended once more in Joo Pessoa, Brazil, after two years on the run. The DEA, the FBI, the Interpol, and the Brazilian and Italian governments were all involved in the operation that resulted in the arrest.
