Strawberry fields forever: Council accused of going soft on Mafia-linked fruit farmer

Donnybrook Berries is owned by Pasquale “Pat” Cufari, a convicted drug trafficker from Mildura named in a 2003 confidential Australian Crime Commission report into organised crime as a known associate of Calabrian Mafia figures in Australia.
