palermo - The Italian police have arrested twenty-five Mafiosi in a large-scale operation in Sicily. The 49-year-old Maria Angela Di Trapani is one of the 'biggest fish' that the police managed to capture.
The wife is the wife of Mafia boss Salvatore Madonia, nicknamed 'Eyes of Ice', who is in prison for murder. Di Trapani would pass messages to the gang members behind the scenes. She would also streamline the temporary succession of her husband.
The police were able to cope with this by, inter alia, intercepting communications, presumably from mobile phones. This showed how different groups fight each other in a struggle for power. Maria Di Trapani would keep the neighborhood of Resuttana in her grip.
