The nephew of Elio Amato, an Italian mafia boss, is reported to have undergone training at a paramilitary camp in Bulgaria.
The 38-year-old Amato, who is in Italy's list of the 100 most wanted criminals, was arrested by the police on Sunday.
He is suspected of having participated in drug trafficking activities as the leader of the Amato-Pagano clan, which broke off from the Neapolitan mafia, the Camora....
Seems Bulgaria tries to revive an old 'tradition' - not the best one actually.
Bulgaria was also the training ground for the IRA and Ustasha terrorists some 90 years when they came here to receive paramilitary training from the then most successful terrorists, the VMRO.
"Ahem, if his polo shirt is to be believed...)
Nowadays, you can buy polo shirts with almost any crap on them, therefore a doubtful criterion. I've even seen such shirts with prison identifications on them.
A famous American humorist once wrote,"If nobody gives a damn about your opinion, what makes you believe they want to read your T-shirt?".
I get so annoyed at stores, especially those with sports articles. You can't buy unwritten-upon clothing any more. There is always some stupid saying on it, or at least the manufacturer's logo. Nothing plain is available.
My position is that if the manufacturer wants me to carry his advertising around town, he should pay me, not the other way around.
"Ahem, if his polo shirt is to be believed, he was also trained at the UK's elite military academy Sandhurst. Many a terrorist, dictator and mercenary has graduated there: Idi Amin springs to mind."
The contents (the man himself) of the polo shirt do not really point to elite military training, but more to elite beer drinking training.
"The contents (the man himself) of the polo shirt do not really point to elite military training, but more to elite beer drinking training."
So then, apparently this story boils down to the following:
Overweight wannabe mafioso in fake polo shirt returns from having a few Zagorkas in Sunny Beach, only to be arrested because of the gossip of some nameless Bulgarian.
Closer to the truth?
"Seems Bulgaria tries to revive an old 'tradition' - not the best one actually.

The IRA? Really?
And by the way VMRO is considered by many in Western Europe as a "Macedonian" organization despite having been headquartered in Bulgaria
So if the Frisians or the Sorbs set up an armed liberation movement as a response to Germany's unwillingness to grant them national/ethnic rights (theoretical scenario) that makes them terrorists? How about the "Austrians" (Germans) of South Tirol? Or the Slovenians of Austria?
Another proof of how stupid and ill-intended you are ;)"
Huh? About what are you blabbering? The VMRO was after the Balkan Wars a bunch of criminals and assassins in Pirin Macedonia who were financing themselves mainly by 'offering protection' to (unwilling) local people, very much like the ETA, IRA or some others later on. Beside from that they were notorious for hundreds of terrorist acts in Greece and Serbia (including ethnic cleansing of whole villages), but also in other countries, including the assassination of many politicians (including a French minister of foreign affairs). The co-operation with the IRA and the Ustasha is excessively documented. But I am not surprised you don't know about it. There isn't a single topic about which you actually know something, considering your frantic wallpapering devoid of any sense.
As for the rest: the news was on Bulgaria, and not on 'Slovenians in Austria', you illiterate.
