AMERICAN Mafia families are recruiting their killers in Sicily because Americans are seen as unreliable and indiscreet, according to authorities in Rome and Washington.


uS Mafia bosses, such as the late John Gotti are recruiting new killers in Sicily after a perception American hitmen are 'unreliable'


Mob families in New York, Chicago and Philadelphia needed new blood after being decimated by turncoats and arrests, said Roberto Centaro, the head of the Italian parliament's anti-Mafia commission.

"Soldiers from Sicily are considered less likely to end up collaborating with police."

Dozens of Sicilians aged between 20 and 30 are believed to have been sent from towns in the Palermo area to the US to help shore up the ranks of clans such as the DeCavalcante family in New Jersey and the Bonanno family in New York.

Mr Centaro has just spent a week in New York discussing organised crime with the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the US protection program for Mafia turncoats and the Justice Department.

Investigators in the US told him that using telephone taps they had heard new arrivals discussing attacks on American investigators and judges.

Mafiosi in Sicily and the US are not only linked by blood but also co-operate in drug-trafficking and occasionally supply each other with personnel when an unknown face is needed for a job.

In recent years American crime families have sent "soldiers" to Sicily to learn the Mafia code of honour.

Experts see the decline of the code as one of the main reasons why American police have been able to make inroads into their activities in recent years.

Nice to see John is active from the grave.
Back to the subject, I wouldn't blame them. How many triggermen have rolled over in the past 2 decades? And, even if the Sicilian's somehow turn over, I doubt they'll try to sell a screenplay to really F' the family over.
