Rome, April 8 According to an Italian newspaper 24 Hours Sun on the 8th, Italian authorities recently arrested about 70 people and confiscated about 1 billion euros of property in a large-scale anti-triad operation.
It is reported that the operation was coordinated by the National Anti-Mafia Prosecutor’s Office with the anti-Mafia regional directors in Rome, Naples, Reggio Calabria and Catanzaro. The report quoted the police as saying that the people involved were charged with a number of crimes, including dealings with the Mafia, money laundering and tax fraud related to the oil trade.
Chief Prosecutor of Catanzaro, Nicolas Gratery, said at an online press conference on the 8th that the operation was related to a major mafia case currently under trial, and more than 300 suspected members of the mafia organization “Glory Club” have been prosecuted.
Gratery pointed out that the people involved in the arrest were related to a money laundering activity of the Mancuso family in the “Glory Club”.
The three major mafia organizations in Italy include “Our Cause” in Sicily, “Camora” in Naples, and “Glory Club” in Calabria. It is believed that the Honor Society has developed into the largest mafia organization in Italy in the past decades, and cocaine trafficking is its main source of wealth.
