One of the rare turncoats of le milieu corse has written a book. Claude Chossat former bodyguard of Francis Mariani, one of the sponsors of the Sea Breeze, lives in fear of reprisals. Mariani was killed by a remote-controlled bomb in 2009.

My knowledge of French is unfortunately nonexistent , but thanks for sharing this nonetheless .

Does the article mention upcoming foreign language translations of this fellow's work by the way ? I must say that information about Corsican OC groups is rather scarce when it comes to English language sources , so it would be great if some major international publisher were to snap this man's book up .

I agree, even in french good books are scarce. Part of the problem is that the omerta is still strong compared to their Sicilian cousins.

The Corsican Mafia was written a lot in Octopus by Claire Sterling.

Heavy into Heroin.

Does anyone know if the Corsican mob is Italians from France? Or is there no ethnic back ground for them?

Their own culture and language are similar, but they have assimilated. Napoleon Bonaparte was a Corsican.

Is it possible that part of the reason why so little information is available about Corsican OC is due to the connections many groups had with the French and American governments ?

Jean Jehan was the big guy behind the French Connection in NY, but there were so many Corsicans involved.

"Honorable families" invest up to Nice, forming agreements with local banditry or the Corsican milieu.

One person was killed and two other wounded in the parking lot at Bastia airport, in Corsica. According to information from BFM-TV, the victim, a man, was killed by a bullet to the head. One of the injured is serious and the car with the killers is on the run. The first investigations on the ambush are directed towards the track of settlement of accounts in the environment of banditry. Prosecutor Caroline Tharot arrived on the spot.

Jacques Mariani convicted on appeal for corrupting a prison guard

Mariani is accused of paying 15,000 euros to a prison guard against several phones, 3G keys and alcohol.

He is considered the heir of the criminal band La Brise de Mer. He was sentenced by the Criminal Court of Marseille on March 22, 2017, to two years in prison, one of which suspended for having paid 15,000 euros to a guard of the central house of Saint-Maur (Indre) in exchange for the delivery in his cell of several mobile phones, two 3G keys and about thirty bottles of alcohol transferred into bottles of mineral water.

But on 18 September, the Advocate General had called for a worsening of the sentence by describing Jacques Mariani as "a guy with strong charisma and important authority". Also, the Court of Appeal of Aix-en-Provence has increased this sentence on Tuesday, sentencing him to four years in prison.

In its judgment, the Court of Appeal stated that the targeted public servant, "identified as particularly fragile", had been the target of "a figure of organized crime whose influence in prison was emphasized". This new sentence pushes the final sentence of Jacques Mariani, originally scheduled for August 29, 2023.

Currently incarcerated in Les Baumettes, Jacques Mariani, 52, has already spent 35 years behind bars. He was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for the murder of a young nationalist in 2001 in Bastia.

How true is the claim that Corsican mobsters tend to be rivals of radical Corsican nationalist groups like the FLNC ? If so then what are the reasons behind it ?

There could be several reasons but often control of the black market is behind the killings. For example nationalist leaders like Orsoni made many investments in the gambling sector.

Very surprised no one has brought this movie up which features the Corsican Mafia heavily - https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/film/2010/jan/21/a-prophet-review

The movies called - A Prophet and it’s brilliant. 97% on rotten tomatoes for what that’s worth. Lot of murders in this too

Jean-Louis Andreani, 61, was targeted Tuesday by an assassination attempt in Vescovato he was hospitalized at the hospital center of Bastia. Out of danger but injured in the back and one arm, he could be heard by the investigators of the Regional Directorate of Judicial Police (DRPJ), in charge of the case. Several elements suggest that the investigators are on the trail of a crime in connection with le milieu du grand banditism. The modus operandi, first of all. The attempt was perpetrated, at a busy hour, on the parking lot of a residence which is in a very busy place. Sign that it could be an act done with a lot of coolness by a "professional".
