ROME (AP) — A convicted Italian mobster, one of Italy’s most sought-after fugitives, has been extradited from Brazil. Italian police said that Rocco Morabito, who was No. 2 on the list of Italy’s most wanted mobsters, arrived on Wednesday morning on a flight from Brazil. Morabito, convicted of drug trafficking as part of the ‘ndrangheta organized crime syndicate, must serve a 30-year prison sentence. He was arrested in May 2021 by Brazilian police in a joint operation with Italian and U.S. investigators. Italian police describe him as one of the world’s top drug brokers. The ‘ndrangheta, based in southern Italy, is a global player in the cocaine trade.
