'Ndrangheta boss extradited from Netherlands to Italy
Gang behind 'Duisburg Massacre'13 December, 20:03
While wanted for a separate murder, Nirta is not directly linked to the Duisburg shooting, which saw one boss and seven 'Ndrangheta members receive life sentences. Nirta was considered one of Italy's 10 most dangerous fugitives. He was found guilty in absentia of murdering a rival member of the Pelle-Vottari clan in a vendetta shooting in Italy in 2011, and sentenced to life in prison. Police tracked him down in Utrecht in September. The 'Ndrangheta is considered Italy's most powerful mafia for its virtual stranglehold on the European cocaine trade.
