Italian mafioso Edgardo Greco to be sent to Italy

The Lyon appeals court agreed to Italy’s extradition request. Greco was convicted in Italy in 2006 to a life sentence for the murder in 1991 of Stefano and Giuseppe Bartolomeo, brothers who were members of a rival gang. He is also accused of the attempted murder of Emiliano Mosciaro. The mafia hitman was nabbed after 16 years on the run.

He is a member of the Perna-Pranno clan, which was the most important in the city of Cosenza, where he lived.
Edgardo Greco worked as a pizza maker in a pizzeria in Saint-Etienne under the name Paolo Dimitri - the name of a criminal from Puglia. Greco, 63, is a member of the Calabrian mafia - the 'Ndrangheta. He was sentenced to life for two murders committed in 1991 and an attempted murder. He was on the run for over 16 years.
