‘Ndrangheta, fugitive Valerio Salvatore Crivello arrested in Germany. He was accused of the Serpa murder in Paola

The Venice Carabinieri with the assistance of the German police arrested the 44-year-old in Keitum (Germany) Valerio Salvatore Crivellopresumably linked to Scofano-Martella-La Rosa di Paola ‘Ndrangheta gangwanted since November 2020, when he escaped the execution order for imprisonment issued by the General Prosecutor’s Office at the Court of Appeal of Catanzaro following the final sentence of life imprisonment, with daytime isolation for two months.
Crivello had been convicted of the murder aggravated by the mafia method of Pietro Serpa, committed on 27 May 2003 in Paola. At the time, Crivello had managed to escape the arrest order by escaping from his parents’ home in Scorzè (Venice), where he had been placed under house arrest with an electronic bracelet, awaiting the final sentence. Hence a manhunt that lasted almost three years, during which the fugitive was wanted in Italy and, after suspicions that he had fled abroad, also internationally.
