39 inc Ornella Muti's sister arrested in drugs op

'Sent rape drug to son in London'

(ANSA) - ROME, OCT 27 - Italian police on Wednesday arrested 39 including actress Ornella Muti's sister on suspicion of importing and distributing drugs including fentanyl, 'rape drug' GHB, synthetic substances and other pharmaceutical ingredients belonging to the category of New Psychoactive Substances, allegedly bought on the Deep and Dark Web.
    The operation was carried out with the help of Europol.
    Muti's sister Claudia Rivelli, 71, was placed under house arrest on suspicion of importing another suspected rape drug, GBL from the Netherlands and sending it to her son in London disguised as shampoo, police said.
    Rivelli had already been arrested on September 15 when police found a litre of GBL in her Rome home.
    She told police she was about to send the substance to her son in London because he used it to clean his car, while she used it "to polish the silverware".
    Among the others arrested are a lawyer, a dentist, a local-government functionary and a middle-school teacher who is alleged to have had drug deliveries made at his school.
    Police said those arrested included habitual criminals working as drug traffickers as well as professionals in the public and private sector. (ANSA).
