Anti-mafia operation advances in Italy

Rome, Sep 6 (Prensa Latina) During a broad police operation called Metropoli-Hidden Economy, which is being developed in Italy, 13 people accused of links with the Ndrangheta mafia organization, were arrested, a spokesman for the Prosecutor's Office said on Tuesday.

The spokesman for the District Anti-Mafia Directorate (DDA) in the city of Milan, in the northern region of Lombardy, said in statements quoted by the Milano Today newspaper that those arrested were charged with drug trafficking.

In addition, some of the accused were charged with extortion, kidnapping, and arms trafficking, while two companies used for money laundering were raided and assault rifles were seized, the source added.

The investigations, carried out by units of the economic and financial police of Milan and Pavia, with support from the central investigation service for organized crime in Rome, led to the detection of illicit activities and the discovery of several drug trafficking routes.

On Monday, the Italian finance police arrested more than 30 people accused of money laundering, fraudulent transfers of securities, and other crimes, as part of the Metropolis-Hidden Economy anti-mafia operation against the Ndrangheta.

Authorities reported that dozens of investigations into the Ndrangheta are underway in 12 Italian regions, including Calabria, the criminal group’s main base, as well as Veneto, Piedmont, Umbria, Sardinia and Basilicata.
