ITALIAN MAFIA BOSS PICTURED ON ISLE OF MAN

On 27th January, local media in the Isle of Man reported on a revelation in a BBC documentary that an Italian Mafioso, linked with the theft of 2 Van Gogh masterpieces worth $100 million, has been pictured on the Island.  It is said that this is the only known public photo of a Camorra crime boss, Raffaele Impieriale (though no date was given for when the photo was, secretly it seems, taken).  The claim featured in ‘Stealing Van Gogh’, a programme which traced the paintings’ journey after they were stolen from a museum in Amsterdam in 2002
