Alleged emerging Italian mob boss arrested in Bali
Bali: Police on the Indonesian resort island of Bali have arrested an alleged up-and-coming Italian mob boss implicated in a number of crimes in his country.
Antonio Messicati Vitale was captured at his luxury villa in the Legian neighborhood of the popular tourist area of Kuta early today in a joint operation by Indonesian and Italian police.
Police Maj Pande Putu Sugiarta said Vitale was believed to have hidden out in the seaside resort for the past six months.
Indonesian police received a notice about the 40-year-old fugitive from their Italian counterparts in November.
Italian police officer Andrea Vitalone said in Bali that Vitale was wanted for involvement in various crimes, including murder, human trafficking and illegal arms trading. Plans are under way to take him back to Italy.
