The Ten Commandments of the Sicilian Cosa Nostra: Mafia Expert Revels Mob Secrets At Quebec Inquiry

CBCNews reports that Valentina Tenti, an expert on the Sicilian Cosa Nostra, reveled some of the organized crime group's secrets at a Canadian inquiry into organized crime. 

Quebec's corruption inquiry heard a detailed history of the Italian Mafia on Tuesday — with everything from its secret codes, its origins and the scope of its reach to how it got into the construction business.

The inquiry was even shown the so-called "Ten Commandments" of the Sicilian Mafia, the list of rules under which members must supposedly live.

The Ten Commandments of the Cosa Nostra

1. I swear to be faithful to the Cosa Nostra. If I betray my flesh must burn — as this image burns.
2. No one can present himself directly to another of our friends. There must be a third person to do it.
3. Never look at the wives of friends.
4. Never be seen with cops.
5. Don’t go to pubs and clubs.
6. Always being available for Cosa Nostra is a duty — even if your wife is about to give birth.
7. Appointments must absolutely be respected.
8. Wives must be treated with respect.
9. When asked for any information the answer must be the truth.
10. Money cannot be appropriated if it belongs to others or to other families.

Individuals who cannot be part of the Cosa Nostra
  • Anyone who has a close relative in the police.
  • Anyone with a two-timing relative in the family.
  • Anyone who behaves badly and doesn’t hold to moral values.
