Justice and Public Security Minister Sergio Moro said on Monday (July 8) that "Brazil should not be a haven for criminals"
Moro took to Twitter to praise Operation Invisible Baron, in which the Federal Police arrested two Italian members of the infamous Ndrangheta, a mafia organization from Calabria.
"Congratulations to the Federal Police for arresting the Italian mobsters," the minister wrote. "Brazil should not be a haven for criminals," he added.
The mobsters were found in a penthouse apartment in Praia Grande, a town on the coast of São Paulo. According to the Federal Police, they are members of Ndrangheta's South American arm. They were arrested by order of Judge Edson Fachin (Federal Supreme Court) and are now awaiting extradition.
