The biography of Vladimir Putin but also that of Adolf Hitler. And then many books on history and philosophy (Xenophon, Plato). This is what the men from the Ros of the Carabinieri found inside the apartment Matthew Messina Money, in San Vito alley. The former fugitive had lived in that house since June 2022, when he had it bought by Andrea Bonafede, the surveyor who had “lent” him his identity, providing him with the necessary 15 thousand euros in cash.
Some plane tickets were also found in the same house, in the name of Bonafede: who used them? The real Bonafede or Messina Denaro? And in this second hypothesis, was there by any chance a passport in the ex-fugitive’s possessions? These are the questions that investigators are asking. The destinations of the flights, in fact, were for cities of theEngland And South America. It is not confirmed, but it is possible that it was the Venezuelaa country where the Messina Denaros have ancient contacts.
In Messina Denaro’s past, links with Caracas have often emerged. Already in the 50s his father, don Ciccio Messina Moneywas linked to the Cuntrera and Caruana: even an exponent of the Siculiana clan he was a witness at the wedding of Matteo’s father. In the 1960s, the Cuntreras and Caruanas left the province of Agrigento to emigrate to Canada and then also to Great Britain and Venezuela: they will soon become among the main drug traffickers in the world. It is estimated that 80 percent of the drugs produced in Colombia arrived in the United States passing through Caracas: there were the people of Siculiana who distributed it. The peak, according to the Goddess, is reached in 1983: 3 billion narcodollars laundered by the Agrigento mafiosi, who worked with the Colombian cartels, from Pablo Escobar to Calì. The link between Venezuela and the Messina Money it also pops up from other old forgotten cards.
There’s a mafia turncoat, a second-tier guy, whose name is Frank Safina: twenty years ago he told that Messina Money he had a treasury in Venezuela, created after investing five million dollars in a poultry company. Isn’t five million for a poultry company a bit much? Was it poultry or was it cocaine? Talk about Venezuela as well Salvatore Grigoli, the killer of don Pino Puglisi: in the 90s he was injured after an attack in Alcamo. With him was Matteo, who told him: “If you want, you can go to Venezuela for a certain period and don’t worry”. Grigoli never went to Venezuela. Messina Denaro probably yes. He sure went there Andrew Bonafede..
