Flying pigs

Public enemy

Rafael Di Zeo, head of Boca Juniors’ hooligan group La Doce, turned himself in to police at around lunchtime on Thursday, after close to three weeks on the run from justice. As mentioned previously, his brother and another La Doce gangleader had already been sentenced, but Di Zeo was the big draw. Today he was finally sentenced to four years and three months in jail for his part in the riot / scrap / civil war between ‘fans’ of Boca and Chacarita Juniors on the 3rd March, 1999. Justice is finally being done.
