The underlying presence of the modern day mob is rarely reported, leaving many of us in the dark. When the mob gets spoken about we often reflect on the likes of John Gotti, once boss of the Gambino crime family in New York City and Carmine John Persico Jr. "The Snake", the long-time serving boss of the Colombo crime family until his death on March 7th 2019 whilst serving a sentence of 139 years in a federal prison. The latest report you can read about the modern day mob is one of Francesco Paolo Augusto Cali -- "Frank" or "Franky Boy" born on March 26th 1965 in New York City, New York, U.S. And the reason you hear about Frank Cali in recent day is due to the fact he got whacked thirteen days before his fifty-fourth birthday. The acting boss of the Gambino crime family was shot and killed outside his home in Staten Island om March 13th, 2019. Guess it just shows like as ever, the mob is exists.
In late 2017, Mirra Construction were facing charges under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act in connection with the workplace fatality for the death of an employee while working on scaffolding on a site in Alta. It was also alleged that it was erected by scaffolding employees who did not possess valid scaffolding registration cards.The case had its first listing at Superior Court of San Andreas on Monday when Judge Richard Petershead heard the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has directed Mr R. Mirra and his firm are to face trial on indictment. Mr Mirra faces charges under the health and safety legislation alleging that he as a director of the firm and as an employer, he failed to ensure workers were not exposed to risks to their safety, health and welfare, specifically in regard to part of the fourth level of scaffolding which was allegedly defective and had an improvised guard rail which was too low, and as a consequence of which Gregory Chido suffered personal injury and died. This means their case will go before a judge and jury in the circuit court. Judge R. Petershead agreed to a request from a State solicitor to adjourn the case for six weeks for the DPP to complete the book of evidence. The case resumes on February 25 next.
An Alta construction company, known as Mirra Construction has been fined $35,000 after being caught failing to ensure the safety and welfare of workers on site after the death of Gregory Chido back in 2017. In the first hearing Judge Richard Petershead agreed to adjourn the case in order to gather up evidence. On the second hearing, Mirra Construction failed to prevent risks from falls from height, exposure to asbestos and dangerous electrical systems. There were no suitable welfare facilities and no measures to prevent fire on site, with Judge Sarah Gatly adding “These risks could so easily have been avoided by simply carrying out correct control measures and safe working practices." Mirra Construction, owner Ray Mirra pleaded guilty to breaching Regulation 13(1) of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. The company was fined $35,000 and ordered to pay costs of $3,860.
