A Molotov cocktail was thrown into the middle of night on a professional offices housing building, including that of Mr. Loris Cavaliere, who defended members of the Rizzuto family in recent years, and Leonardo and Bettina Rizzuto, two of children of the deceased godfather Vito Rizzuto became lawyers.
Shortly before three o’clock, firefighters received a call about a small fire lit in an alley in the back of an office located on St-Laurent Boulevard, near the Avenue Mozart in Little Italy . The flames were quickly contained and the damage is minimal. No one was injured in the incident which has every appearance of a message. The police took pictures of the crime scene during the night. “Investigators will visit the scene today to try to find clues,” says spokesman SPVM André Leclerc.
Besides the offices of Mr Berlusconi and his associates, the building also houses the offices of another lawyer and accountants; Investigators should therefore keep all hypothesis. However, sources tell us of renewed tension within the Mafia in recent weeks.
Members of the Rizzuto family and clan of the Sicilians still control the new leadership of the Montreal Mafia table according to police and are part of the criminal Alliance consolidated in Montreal after the natural death of Vito Rizzuto sponsor in December 2013 .
This tension could be the backdrop of the recent killing of a young man of 24, Marco Claudio Campellone, murdered ten days ago outside his home in Rivière-des-Prairies area. Reportedly, Campellone had worked for one of the members of the mafia management table and may have been killed in the context of a conflict between two traffickers implanted in the Rivière-des-Prairies area. Police fears retaliation.
