Nicola Gratteri

Mobsters are where power and money are. Beyond cocaine smuggling 'Ndrangheta mobsters used to be strong on extortion and public bids; now it's gaming and the migrants centers. They are just one of the ways to become richer for the

Henry Wykowski

Things like this sort of take on a life of their own, and somebody who is obviously anti-cannabis has decided to push it. They think that this is the Achilles' heel. It is scary stuff. I just hope that the defendants get really good lawyers, because this could have an effect on the entire

Fay Vincent

In those days, we were very adamant against betting, because we had just been dealt and were dealing with the Pete Rose case. We saw the risks and the danger of corruption, and we saw that the mafia was involved in some of the things we investigated. It's dangerous, and it's still dangerous. But I think the American public wants to bet, and it's already

Letizia Battaglia

I still have lots of things to do, I feel a strength inside that I didn't feel when I was 20, 30 or 40. Maybe I feel strong because today, I am my own master, and this gives me strength. Like

Paolo Falcone

Letizia was a woman who was photographing the Mafia during the period of the bloodiest years of its history, destroying taboos. This makes her a figure that goes beyond being a photographer, a major retrospective of her works for the city of

Jairo Popeye Velásquez

I like to shoot and I like the mafia. I like the adrenaline and I like crime. I no longer want to do it in the streets; I don't want to kill anyone else. So I'll do it in the movies. They killed people at stoplights, in streets. They dismembered people, beheaded people, took out their eyes, cut off their fingers. Medellín transferred that [experience] to

Viktor Orban

There is an important element in public life in Hungary which is not transparent and not open – and that is the Soros network, with its mafia-style operation and its agentlike organizations. The Hungarian people, have the right to know who represents what and to what end, and what goals they seek to achieve through their

When Berlusconi started in the 1970s he started on the right foot, throw in some luck and he ended up what he is. When he found himself with a such a (big) party in 1994, he got drunk and said 'I can't share what I have with those who helped me'. He distanced himself and was a traitor. Berlusconi asked me for this favour…that's why there was the

George Soros

I am full of admiration for the courageous way the Hungarian people have resisted the deception and corruption of the mafia state the Orban regime has established. Most Europeans of my generation were supporters of further integration. Subsequent generations came to regard the EU as an enemy that deprives them of a secure and promising future. This feeling was reinforced by the rise of anti-European, xenophobic parties that are motivated by values that are diametrically opposed to the values on which the European Union was

Enzo Letizia

Such a murder, so heinous, carried out near a school, on the anniversary of the [Falcone;] massacre, shows how complex the mafia phenomenon is. Tomorrow the state will remember its heroes, slain by the mafia; today the mafia showed its dynamism, by killing once

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

The media has a long history of speaking truth to power with purloined or leaked material - Jack Anderson's reporting on the CIA's enlistment of the Mafia to kill Fidel Castro; the Providence Journal-Bulletin's release of President Richard Nixon's stolen tax returns; the New York Times' publication of the stolen 'Pentagon Papers'; and The Post's tenacious reporting of Watergate leaks, to name a few. I hope historians place WikiLeaks' publications in this pantheon. Yet there are widespread calls to prosecute

Edgardo Buscaglia

The governors are the main architects of this mafia-style financing for electoral campaigns. When they become public embarrassments, like Duarte and Yarrington, the prosecutors will act under international pressure, but they have a lot of information that could bring down half of the ruling class. They are negotiating their apprehension, their fortunes. That is why, miraculously, the ex-governors can't be

Nobile Capuani

Whoever knows me and links me to the Mafia or the Ndrangheta does not understand the Mafia or the Ndrangheta [organised crime in Calabria, Italy], I can assure you. If I had something to do with the Mafia or Ndrangheta, don't you think I would have been arrested in Italy? I have done nothing

Nigel Farage

Joseph Gioconda

Giving membership to a company who has been accused of being a major enabler of copyright infringement would really question what the purpose is of the organization. If you were going after the mafia, you wouldn't invite them to dinner and have a conversation about how you're going to go about working

Nigel Farage

You are behaving like the mafia. You think we are a hostage. We are not, we are free to go. What you could have done is acknowledge that we have put net over 200 billion sterling into this project, we're actually shareholders… and you should be making us an offer we can't refuse – to go. All I can say is thank goodness we're leaving. If you wish to have no deal, if you want to force us to move from the table, we will. You know we don't have to buy German cars, we don't have to drink French wine, we don't have to eat Belgian

Nigel Farage

What you're saying is that you want to put the interests of the European Union above that of your citizens and your companies and if you continue with that route it won't just be the United Kingdom that triggers article 50, there will be many more to

Nigel Farage

Mr Verhofstadt tells us that we cannot discuss trade deals with any other country in the world until we have left the EU. That has no basis in treaty laws whatsoever. We don't have to buy German motorcars, we don't have to drink French wine, and we don't have to eat Belgian chocolate. We can get these things elsewhere. You will hurt your people and your companies if you continue down this

Nigel Farage

The response to the triggering of Article 50 has been all too predictable. Already you have made a series of demands that are not just unreasonable but in some cases impossible for Britain to comply with. You began by telling us that Britain would have to pay a bill! A cool 52 billion sterling, a figure that has clearly been plucked out of the air, effectively a ransom demand. What you could have done is acknowledge that we have put net over 200 billion sterling into this project, we're actually shareholders...and you should be making us an offer we can't refuse - to

Andrea Agnelli

I will defend myself, I will defend my collaborators and I will defend the good name of Juventus, which has already had mud slung at it during some curious experimental sporting justice rulings in the past. I invite you reporters from today to look deeply into the themes of an inquest that has curiously seen the names of those accused of mafia links disappear to be replaced in the headlines by witnesses whose only crime is to work for a very famous club whose name is on everyone's

Andrea Agnelli

I similarly invite you all to be witnesses and not instruments to make prejudiced conclusions that would in my view be wrong and against everything the justice system stands for. I never met with any Mafia bosses. I want to remind everyone that at the time these ultras were, and indeed still are, free of any criminal record. I have met with ultras from various different groups… and always in the clear light of day. This is normal for a president of a football club.

That's why it's in the Panama Papers. We are like Sicily, with volcanic activity and huge family bonds, and a really strong mafia. The Sicilian mafia by comparison is totally amateur, so resorts to violence. Ours just rules. Iceland got one of the best deals out of the second world war and gained its independence from Denmark. Old people would arrogantly call it 'the blessed war', because the economy started booming. Two generations ago, we were the total scum of the earth.

What if these people buying real estate, as well as moving into services, also buy into newspapers or television – as they've already started to?
