In 2007, Italian police make a startling discovery during a raid on a village head of the mafia “: a list of the most sacred laws of the Mafia.
It is a startling discovery: a code of conduct for the mafia. Now for the first time, the former Evil Empire talk about the rules governing the criminal world, and reveal what happened when the underworld began to question the so-called Ten Commandments of the Mafia.
The document makes clear that people with police or informers in their family can not be members of the mafia. And although mobsters’ wives “should be respected, they should not expect much support during childbirth: the rules state that” always being available for Cosa Nostra is a duty – even if his wife is about to give birth. ”
The decalogue was discovered along with a large number of other coded documents in a house near Palermo where Mr Piccolo was arrested after more than two decades in the functioning of the police. Researchers say the documents – including the Ten Commandments – will give you an idea of how the Mafia operates.
The documents also reveal details of companies with Mafia connections and information about the hierarchy within the organization.
