Camorra fugitive arrested in Portugal after 20 years

PORTUGAL’S criminal police agency PJ said on Saturday it arrested a member of Italy’s Camorra crime group who has been on the run for two decades.

PJ said in a statement it made the arrest in the country’s northern region and that the member of the Camorra, as the Naples version of the mafia is known, was the target of a European arrest warrant.

Twenty years ago, the 69-year-old male was sentenced to 15 years behind bars for drug trafficking but absconded and has been wanted by Italian authorities ever since PJ said.

He has appeared before a Portuguese judge and will remain in jail until he is extradited.
