In the night, the DIA officers in Salerno, carried out an order of personal preventive measures issued by the preliminary investigating magistrate (G.I.P) at the court in Nocera Inferiore, on a proposal from the Public Prosecutor’s Office, for the manufacture and possession of war weapons.
The DIA Resident Office in Salerno carried out a well-structured criminal investigation into individuals living in the area of Salerno and Naples. Within the investigation, a huge quantity of explosives was detected. They were partly contained in a device, manufactured by an individual of Scafati, in complicity with other members, through a well-defined division of the operational tasks.
The investigations carried out – including the use of interceptions and surveillance services – highlighted the involvement of five individuals with several criminal records. They had manufactured a war explosive device, weighing 3.4 kg and were in possession of several explosives, which were to be used to manufacture other explosive devices (no. 17 pyrotechnics, a 140 cm long detonator with black powder, 3.600 kg of a mixture of gray pyrotechnics powder and 8.400 kg of powdered potassium perchlorate).
As a result, an order of pre-trial detention against two individuals and a house arrest order against further two individuals were issued. Moreover, a series of house searches were ordered by the Prosecutor’s Office.
The above-.mentioned operation dealt an important blow to the bomb attacks lately carried out in the area of Nocera.
