Colombo administration bust. A substantial number of Colombo administration members were arrested Tuesday on racketeering and extortion charges, including alleged boss Andrew “Mush” Russo, 87, and alleged underboss Benjamin “Benji” Castellazzo, 83.
The bust was carried out in a join operation between the NYPD and FBI to unravel a labor racketeering and extortion fraud system.
In Brooklyn federal court, 14 defendants were charged on a 19 count indictment. Of these 14, 10 alleged members of the Colombo crime family were reportedly attempting to penetrate the long-standing construction labor union and its healthcare program in Queens. The defendants are also facing extortion accusations having to do with workplace safety certifications.
Gomorrah (Italian: Gomorra – La serie) is an Italian crime drama television series created by Roberto Saviano for Sky Atlantic. Based on Saviano’s book of the same name, the show premiered on Sky Atlantic in Italy on 6 May 2014, and has run for four seasons; a fifth and last season will air in 2021. The 2008 film of the same name is loosely based on the same book, but unrelated to the TV series.
The show, largely filmed in the Scampia neighborhood of Naples, tells the story of Ciro Di Marzio (Marco D’Amore), a member of the Camorra‘s Savastano clan, headed by Pietro Savastano (Fortunato Cerlino), a high-ranking member. Ciro aims to navigate the dangers of the criminal world, while also fighting a brutal civil war. The Savastano family also consists of his wife Immacolata (Maria Pia Calzone) and son, Gennaro (Salvatore Esposito). The show also features rival crime boss Salvatore Conte (Marco Palvetti), while introducing the characters Annalisa Magliocca (Cristina Donadio), Patrizia Santore (Cristiana Dell’Anna), Giuseppe Avitabile (Gianfranco Gallo) and Enzo “Sangueblù” Villa (Arturo Muselli) in the show’s later seasons.
