Former New Camorra capo Pasquale Scotti, convicted of 20 murders, is now jailed,
Mr. Scotti was detained in the northeastern Brazilian city of Recife at about 7 a.m. local time. He arrived in Brazil in 1986 using false identification documents, Brazilian and Italian police said Tuesday at a news conference in Brasília.
He married a local woman, with whom he has two children, and set up businesses in the area, including a real-estate brokerage and a fireworks factory, police said.
He had escaped from a hospital room following a shootout with Italian police in 1984.
