Crime of #Encrochat: How Kinahan pal Raffaele Imperiale blew €7m in ‘expenses’ in just three months


Kinahan gang associate Raffaele Imperiale spent an astonishing €7 million as a fugitive in just three months, with half described as "personal expenses", new documents have revealed.

The Camorra broker Imperiale - considered one of the biggest drug traffickers in the world - was arrested last year at his Dubai home and flown to Rome in March to face charges.Imperiale, who became infamous after two paintings, including a Van Gogh stolen in 2002 in Amsterdam were found hidden in a wall in one of his villas in Naples, blew through more than €3 million for “personal expenses” while on the run in Dubai.Another half a million went to his ex-wife, while hundreds of thousands of euros were spent on houses and horses, and €200,000 on air travel in just one three-month period.

The “management" expenses that are comparable to those of a large company, were, in reality, the private budget of Imperiale, who also used the money in an attempt to bribe Interpol to have his associate Bruno Carbone released from prison, according to a “collaborator of justice”.The accounting is listed in an encrypted message that the 48-year-old Imperiale sent to what is believed to be his accountant, and relates to just the first quarter of 2020.

The message was sent via the Encrochat platform on April 3, 2020 from the nickname ‘Opentiger’, which Italian investigators identified as Imperial, to ‘Mightywood’ which refers to the accountant, they believe.

The total amount comes to €6,922,742 euros, which includes personal expenses (€3,275,275, of which €181,000 went to his wife); €492,700 to ‘Davide’ (identified as his brother-in-law David Charles Mirone); €497,000 euros to Imperiale's ex-wife; and €355,000 to other family members.

A total of €855,000 went on ‘office’ expenses; €147,000 under the item ‘Xxx’; €313,952 euros for ‘Case’ and €312,250 for ‘Cavalli’ (including €12,800 for ‘Juao Portugal’). The items dedicated to travel are also noteworthy: €41,000 for "Rent Car" and €214,510 for "air flights".

Further investigations since Imperiale’s arrest have led to the arrests of 28 people, who are all believed to be connected to the criminal organisation who specialised in transnational cocaine trafficking.

The operation was carried out by the Naples Mobile Squad, the Guardia di Finanza of the Provincial Command of Naples, the Central Organized Crime Investigation Service (SCICO) and the Central Operational Service of the State Police (SCO).

“ If you need to communicate top classified information or you need to store secret data and be absolutely sure that no state-sponsored hackers, no foreign Governments , no intelligence agencies will be ever able to decipher the files, you need an Above Military Level Offline SuperEncryption System” 


Rule number 1 ☝🏼:

EncroChat evidences has been collected from the storage on the devices seized . A real military grade encryption device can’t be ever accessed by any digital forensic tools such as Cellebrite.

Rule number 2 :

Never 👎 use encryption services that are server based . Servers can be hacked easily and all data passing through them can be intercept. Servers also store the messages so that also this cloud based storage can be accessed and used as evidence.

Rule number 3:

Never , ⛔️ ever trust their party encryption services. The moment you trust a third party for generating your encryption keys, manage and store them for you , it’s game over . It’s like giving the keys of your bank vault to a total stranger .

Rule number 4 :

Stop 🛑 trusting cheap online encrypted phone suppliers! ⚠️ The garbage online are fake encrypted phones based on a $ 50 USD cheap Android cellphone bought in China and installed with a very low level security end to end encrypted messaging app.

Work like a pro, like intelligence agencies do ! Stop being scammed by online marketers selling you security illusions .
