Carabinieri discovered the second hideout of the arrested Sicilian mafia boss Matteo Messina Denaro. The media reported that officers discovered four cardboard boxes of documents and jewelry there.
The second hideout of the Sicilian mafia boss Matteo Messina Denaro, arrested on Monday, hiding for 30 years, was found by carabiniers in the same town on the island, close to the house where he was last staying.
“A secret room behind a wardrobe, like in a thriller” – this is how the Italian agency Ansa described the second hiding place of a powerful mafioso found on the ground floor of a house in Campobello di Mazara near Trapani. This is a town close to his hometown.
This is where the boss of the mafia bosses spent the last year. The latter place is close to the house where he actually lived. In the discovered second secret place, according to the findings, there were hidden documents that could be of great value to investigators in the investigation against cosa nostra.
RAI television informs about four cartons. Messina Denaro also kept valuable precious stones and jewelry there. Carabinieri and Financial Guard officers entered the bunker behind the wardrobe after receiving a confidential signal about the place.
Doctors under investigation
Matteo Messina Denaro, 60, was placed in a prison in the city of L’Aquila in Abruzzo under high security conditions. He is to be treated there, including chemotherapy.
Two doctors who treated the wanted man were included in the investigation. One of them is a famous Sicilian oncologist. The investigation is to determine whether they both knew who they were actually dealing with.
