‘Ndrangheta, two double murders in the Vibonese area: the indictment of the DDA begins in Rinascita Scott

«Even the stones know who killed my brother». On 4 May and 8 September 2016 two letters arrived on the desk of the then deputy prosecutor of the Catanzaro DDA Camillo Falvo, now chief prosecutor of Vibo Valentia. He sends them from Secondigliano prison Leone Tabbya leading member of the Filandari clan of the same name (Vibo Valentia) and brother of Roberto Sorianowho passed away on 5 August 1996 together with Antonio Lo Giudice, another multiple criminal from the Vibo area. But while the body of Antonio Lo Giudice will be found, charred, in Roberto Soriano’s Renault Clio, nothing more will be known about the latter.

Those accused of the double crime are the alleged boss of San Gregorio D’Ippona Saverio Razionale, and the alleged boss of Zungri Giuseppe Antonio Accorinti, also accused in the section on the murders of the maxi trial «Rinascita Scott» which is being celebrated before the Court of ‘Assemblies of Catanzaro presided over by Massimo Forciniti. Today it has the indictment began with the discussions of the prosecutors Antonio De Bernardo, who dealt with the double murder of Alfredo Cracolici known as «Alfredo Palermo» (head of the Maierato gang of the same name) and Giovanni Furlano, and of the prosecutor Annamaria Frustaci who discussed on the Soriano-Lo Giudice case.

Frustaci recalled the letters from Leone Soriano, now detained under the 41bis regime, in which the man states that the names “even the stones know the names of those who killed my brother”, and invites us to hear the justice collaborator Raffaele Moscato and also indicates the burial place of the relative: «My brother is buried in Briatico under a sewer pipe. I want to help you but I don’t want to destroy my life”. The prisoner would then invite the DDA to deepen the relationship between San Gregorio D’Ippona and Zungri. The prosecution, however, recalled that Leone Soriano, during the trial, called to testify about the murder of his brother, made use of the right not to answer and that no one from the family was a civil party in this crime. Not only. The victim’s son, Giuseppe Soriano, stated in the courtroom that his father “disappeared” for him, that he was told this in his family and he never asked for anything, nor did he ever look for him. In reality, the magistrate recalled, according to the declarations of collaborators Emanuele Mancuso, in the past a close friend of Giuseppe Soriano, and of Bartolomeo Arena, Giuseppe Soriano would have tried to obtain an explosive device to kill Giuseppe Antonio Accorinti. “Here – said prosecutor Frustaci – we are not faced with a son who is not looking for his father but with a son who wants to avenge his father with a bomb”.
