Considered one of Italy’s most dangerous fugitives, suspected of being a boss of the Camorra mafia and the one-time owner of two stolen Van Gogh masterpieces, Raffaele Imperiale is now counting the cost of his life of crime.

Arrested earlier this month in Dubai, he is facing hefty charges back in Italy and a lengthy prison sentence for his role at the very top of organised crime.

But Imperiale is no ordinary mafia Don. Documents from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) in the U.S. suggest that he was part of a European cocaine super cartel which included, amongst others, the Kinahan mafia.

Nicola Tallant chats with Sunday World deputy editor Niall Donald about what his capture means for the takedown of the European narcos and how it leaves Daniel Kinahan as one of the last men standing in Dubai.
