Damiano Dipopolo
Dec. 11, 2005. Vancouver Province. A long-running feud in a family whose name is tied to some of Vancouver's biggest real-estate developments has once again spilled into B.C. Supreme Court.

This time, it comes complete with allegations of threats, assaults, intimidation - and a contract to kill a family member. In an unusual civil suit, Donato De Cotiis, 44, is seeking a court injunction and damages to protect himself from eight family members named in a statement of claim.

The suit alleges that the eight DeCotiis family defendants "have engaged, hired or employed the defendants Rocco Dipopolo and Damiano Dipopolo to assault, threaten and/or intimidate the plaintiff as an integral part of efforts to intimidate the plaintiff, to interfere in the business, commercial and leisure activities of the plaintiff and to injure the plaintiff." Chow confirmed that police investigated an incident between Donato De Cotiis and the Dipopolos. No charges were laid.
[18] At some point, on a date which was not clear in the evidence, Mr. Dipopolo won $80,000 in a lottery. He gave his twin brother $30,000 as a gift.

[48] At some point, Mr. Dipopolo acquired a one-third interest in a company called Liquid Zoo Holdings Ltd. On August 23, 2005, Mr. Dipopolo, together with the two other shareholders in Liquid Zoo Holdings Ltd., Messrs. Bruneau and Raffael, signed a promissory note for $350,000 payable to Amacon Management.

[62] Liquid Zoo Holdings executed a mortgage dated May 12, 2006, in favour of Amacon for the amount of $650,000. However, this mortgage was not registered until more than one year later, on August 10, 2007. Mr. Dipopolo appeared to consider the mortgage to be further security for Amacon's $350,000 loan to the three Liquid Zoo Holdings shareholders made about one year earlier, in August 2005.

Marcello DeCotiis and his sister, Lilliana
Lilliana De Cotiis runs the hospitality division of real estate developer Amacon, which she co-owns with eldest sibling Teresa and older brothers Donato, Luca and Marcello. Siblings have input on all aspects of Amacon's corporate operations. De Cotiis and her siblings named their company Amacon, after late father Amalio and mother Concetta.

Amalio was part of the first generation of De Cotiises to arrive in Vancouver. He came with parents Donato and Teresa and three sisters as well as brothers Marcangelo, Inno, Vito and Michael in a staggered migration.

Damiano DiPopolo
Eldest brother Marcangelo eventually had a falling out with his brothers that was serious enough to devolve into legal action. Vito died in his 30s. Inno created his own real estate development company and named it by spelling his own name backwards: Onni.

Youngest brother Michael then founded and still runs Pinnacle International.

In February 2003, Paolo De Cotiis approached Brandon Hughes at a nightclub and threatened "to get" his family.
Sunday, July 26, 2009. The targeted murder of 28-year-old Brandon Vito Hughes in North Vancouver last week was preceded by a tense family feud that included a death threat within the De Cotiis clan, who are connected to real-estate developments in the Lower Mainland.

Hughes was found gravely wounded outside 1956 Jones Ave. in North Vancouver. Hughes is grandson of the late construction mogul Marcangelo De Cotiis, whose widow, Addolorata De Cotiis, owns the home at 1956 Jones Ave. Siblings of the De Cotiis family own Onni Group, Pinnacle International and Amacon.

August 6th, 2010. B.C. Court of Appeal issues ruling in De Cotiis family feud. Donato De Cotiis's lawsuit against companies controlled by his uncles Amalio, Inno, and Mike was dismissed. Donato De Cotiis's deceased father Marcangelo, a construction magnate, was also listed as a plaintiff.

"This dispute is only part of a larger family feud that unfolded against a backdrop of profitable corporations and partnerships," Newbury wrote in the court's reasons for judgment. This lawsuit was a spinoff of another major dispute, which was addressed in a 1995 B.C. Supreme Court decision.

I can't breath

3 more Ex-Minnesota cops charged
Tou Thao, Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng were charged with aiding and abetting George Floyd’s murder
Derek Chauvin's third-degree murder charge is now a second-degree murder. The Minneapolis Police Department initially claimed that Floyd was resisting arrest.
The 3rd-degree murder charge Derek Chauvin faces carries a maximum sentence of 25 years. He applied pressure to the back of George Floyd's neck for over 8 minutes.
Derek Chauvin
Killer cop Derek Chauvin is an open racist.
Twitter has hidden a tweet by Trump, saying it violates rules about glorifying violence. Instead of being deleted, both tweets can be viewed by clicking on a warning. This is the latest in an escalating row. Given Trump's mush porridge brain, this is bound to drive him into a Trumpian tizzy.

Experts say "This pours rocket fuel over the online-harm-versus-free-speech debate. Online content policy doesn't get more incendiary than this."
A CNN reporter was arrested live on television while covering the Minneapolis protests. Folks best realize how dangerous this is and what it represents.
The cop who killed George Floyd in custody, Derek Chauvin, had 18 previous complaints filed against him and two letters of reprimand.

Derek Chauvin, sadist killer and former cop. He has been arrested for murder.

Jamaican Drug kingpin Norris ‘Deedo’ Nembhard to forfeit $200m in assets - update

Jamaican drug lord Norris 'Deedo' Nembhard has lost another appeal against the state. On May 4 the Appeal Court denied Nembhard's motion for leave to appeal a decision against him. He lost with costs, as his appeal had no chance of success.

Nembhard, along with Leebert Ramcharan, were designated “drug kingpins” under the US Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act in 2004. After fighting extradition for four years Nembhard was extradited to the US in 2008 along with four other Jamaicans — Robroy Williams, Glenford Williams, Vivian Dalley and Herbert Henry, a former police corporal.
Leebert Ramcharan
Some $200m in assets that belonged to convicted drug kingpin, Norris ‘Deedo’ Nembhard, will be forfeited to Jamaica following a Supreme Court ruling.

He lost a three-year battle to retain his assets that include six high-priced properties in St Ann and a dozen high-end vehicles. In 2004, Nembhard was one of several Jamaicans designated as drug kingpins by then US President George W. Bush.
Nembhard was sentenced to 13 years in prison but was released in August 2015 after serving nine years.

Co-accused Colombian national Luis Miguel Avila Arias said that the group used Jamaican waters as a trans-shipment point for cocaine moving from Colombia to the United States.

360 kg of cocaine seized in Sofia, Bulgaria

Some cocaine was of high purity over 75%, with the rest cut to 65-70%. Bulgarian police have seized more than 360kg of cocaine in the capital. The cocaine haul was made in the apartment of 33-year old Nikolay Petrov, after police had found 40kg during a routine traffic stop.
Cops say the haul is worth $50m with most of the drugs meant for shipment to western Euurope. Bulgaria lies on a drug route from the Middle East to Western Europe, and Bulgarians have long been active in the cocaine trade.

Bulgarian drug lord Evelin Banev 'Brendo', was sentenced to 20 years in 2012.

Career drug dealer Leslie John McCulloch shot down for release

West Kelowna drug trafficker Leslie John McCulloch will remain in jail where he belongs, in spite of his large fears of COVID-19. McCulloch was busted making acetylfentanyl pills. Acetylfentanyl is an analogue of fentanyl. McCulloch was on parole for cocaine trafficking when he was arrested in 2016.

The Parole Board labelled McCulloch a “middleman who transported drugs for the Hells Angels” in 2013. The fate of his girlfriend, Rebekka Rae White is unknown. McCulloch ran away from a plea deal for her role in the operation.
One year into an eight-year sentence for drugs, Leslie John McCulloch has accused Canada's attorney general of acting too slowly to hear his application for 'exceptional parole' because he has asthma. McCulloch was sentenced in January 2019 after skipping bail on charges of running a fentanyl drug lab ... while he was on parole for peddling cocaine.

He taunted cops while on the run. McCulloch says he is terribly worried about dying if he contracts COVID-19 in jail.
McCulloch has long standing ties with the HA in Kelowna.
