‘Clash of personalities’ behind Monaco murder

By Staff Writer - March 7, 2017

policecarA clash of personalities may be the root cause of the falling out of two colleagues at the Pulcinella restaurant in Monaco that resulted in a 30-year-old Italian of Albanian origin fatally stabbing his colleague, investigators believe.

Ricard Nika has confessed to killing Alfio Fallica, also 30, and Sicilian, on the evening of February 24. Mr Nika, a waiter, has been described by co-workers as taciturn and unstable, and also ambitious, but so far no one has been able to identify the real reason for the killing.

Nika remains in custody in Italy and has said nothing since his arrest in Bordighera, accept for admitting the facts, according to reports.

Twelve days ago, the body of Alfio Fallica was found in a pool of blood in the wine cellar of the popular upmarket restaurant on 17 rue du Portier at 5:30 pm on Friday night, and investigators believe he had been ambushed and stabbed to death. The two men had, reportedly, had a difference of opinion about a month before the incident, colleagues have said.
