- 'Ndrangheta, assets worth 15 million seized from the Raso-Gullace gang
- 'Ndrangheta: police blitz against cosca Libri, 17 arrests
ShareMay 22, 2020 Goods for 8 million euros were confiscated by financiers of the Special Currency Police Unit to a fifty-year-old businessman.
The military, under the coordination of the Prosecutor of the Republic of Reggio Calabria - District Anti-Mafia Directorate, directed by the Chief Prosecutor Giovanni Bombardieri, executed a measure issued by the Prevention Measures Section of the Court of Reggio Calabria. The entrepreneur subject to special surveillance with an obligation to stay, would have had interests with the gangs of 'ndrangheta of the Iamonte of Melito Porto Salvo and of the Piromalli of Gioia Tauro who act in the territory of Reggio Calabria.
The measure is based on investigations by the Guardia di Finanza, from which it emerged that the entrepreneur had long been in business with the 'ndrangheta. A relationship that had allowed him to expand his businesses thanks to the gangs.
The investigations began with the "Ada" police operation, which ended in 2013 and led to the arrest of numerous members of the Iamonte gang for the crime, among others, of a mafia-type association.
The activity carried out by the Guardia di Finanza, thanks to the statements of some collaborators of justice, would have allowed to ascertain how the entrepreneur had not only known for some time the top of the Piromalli gang for their common interests concentrated both on the Calabrian territory but also in Emilia Romagna, Lazio and Lombardy.
The prevention measures section of the Court of Reggio Calabria, at the request of the local DDA, with two different measures dating back to 2018 and 2019, had ordered the seizure of the assets illicitly accumulated by the entrepreneur.
The confiscation concerns the assets attributable to the Reggio entrepreneur, consisting of the corporate compendium of various companies, company shares, real estate, motor vehicles and financial relationships.
