  • Naples - Paolo Di Lauro, a reputed top boss of the Camorra crime syndicate, was sentenced to 30 years in prison, said Italian court officials on Thursday.

    Di Lauro, 52, was convicted in a courtroom in Naples on charges of mafia association, extortion and drug trafficking for the period from 1991 to 2000.

    The sentence on Wednesday followed his arrest in September 2005. He had been on Italy's list of most wanted dangerous fugitives since 2002.

    In Italy, a conviction was not final until all the appeals had been exhausted.

    Di Lauro was said to be the head of a criminal clan involved in a vicious turf war with a breakaway group that sparked dozens of murders in the Naples area in 2004.

    Officials said that the violence was believed to be over the control of drug trafficking. The leader of the breakaway group, Raffaele Amato, was also arrested in Spain in February 2005.

    The Camorra, the equivalent of the Sicilian mafia for the Naples area, controlled drug and arms trafficking, prostitution, extortion and illegal betting rackets.
