"Italian mafia boss mistakenly released after his arrest in Barcelona"

El Pais:

Information about the arrest was widely disseminated by the National Police’s press department on October 12. In a media release, the police underscored that Raso is “a leading member of the 'Ndrangheta.” The suspect was also defined as a vangelo, “a leading figure of the Calabrian organization whose criminal activity mainly takes place through drug and weapons trafficking.”


The judge issued a new arrest warrant, but by then Raso had walked out of his holding cell inside the City of Justice in Barcelona. “Everyone is looking for him. The homes where he was known to have stayed have been searched, but there is no trace of him,” lamented one police source.
