Rome, April 10 - Italian police on Wednesday seized
assets worth some 10 million euros from a former boss in the
Magliana Gang that ruled Rome's criminal underground in the
1970s and '80s.
Ex-Magliana Gang chieftain Ernesto Diotallevi was also
implicated, but acquitted, in the case of Roberto Calvi, the
Italian banker found hanging under London's Blackfriars Bridge
in 1982 in mysterious circumstances.
Italian prosecutors have claimed he was murdered after
failing to pay back the Mafia, but no convictions have been
made.
Diotallevi was arrested last July with 10 others, including
a priest, on suspicion of fraud and money laundering. He has
since been indicted on those charges.
The unnamed priest is thought to have been behind a bank
transfer to an anonymous account opened by the Institute for
Works of Religion - commonly known as the Vatican Bank - at a
Rome branch of Italy's biggest bank Unicredit.
Calvi worked closely with the Vatican Bank, earning the
nickname 'God's Banker'.
Diotallevi, Sardinian wheeler-dealer Flavio Carboni and
ex-Mafia financial wizard Pippo Calo' were acquitted in an
appeals trial over the Calvi murder in May 2010 but prosecutors
appealed to the supreme Court of Cassation.
The Magliana gang was the most feared criminal organization
in Rome from the mid 70s to the mid 1980s, not just for the
robberies and murders it committed but also for its links with
the Mafia, freemasonry and right-wing extremists.
