The Direzione Investigativa Antimafia, a Directorate within the Department of Public Security, carried out an order of confiscation issued by the Court – 1st Crime Section – Preventive Measures – in Palermo. The order involved the assets of an entrepreneur operating in the fields of gambling and betting.
The confiscation is the result of an investigation carried out by the DIA, which traced back the entrepreneurial and criminal career of the affected party, highlighting his social dangerousness and focusing the attention on his fraudulent activities of gambling, betting and aggravated fraud. Such activities were aimed to obtain unlawful profits to the detriment of the Stat, making use of foreign companies to collect the illicitly gained proceeds.
The in-depth checks carried out by the DIA revealed not only the criminal profile of the entrepreneur but also the disproportion between the incomes declared and the huge assets he had over time accumulated.
The final confiscation order, for a total value of over 500,000.00 euro, involved:
- shares in companies, including foreign companies, collecting bets;
- 2 luxury cars;
- insurance policies;
- current accounts;
- savings accounts.
The entrepreneur was put under special surveillance of public security with the obligation to stay in the area of residence for 2 years.
