Police Seize Sicilian Companies of Mafia Boss; Matteo Messina Denaro's Assets Worth $14M

Police in Sicily today (February 11, 2017) confiscated four olive companies, farmland, villas, and other property that anti-Mafia prosecutors say belong to the business empire of Italy's top Mafia boss, who has been on the run for more than 20 years, according to the Newsmax website.

The property confiscated in the western part of Sicily considered to be Matteo Messina Denaro's power base, was estimated to be worth 13 million euros ($14 million).

The convicted Cosa Nostra mobster is Italy's most-wanted fugitive.

Prosecutors allege the olive businesses and 108 other properties, plus vehicles and bank accounts, were listed in the name of accomplices to hide their actual ownership by the fugitive.
