The Direzione Investigativa Antimafia, a Directorate within the Department of Public Security, carried out an order of preventive seizure issued, on an urgent basis, by the court in Bologna, on proposal of the Prosecutor’s Office – Antimafia District Directorate – in Bologna. The order involved movable and immovable assets as well as companies, with an estimated value of about 10,500,000.00 euros, linked to a top-level member of the ‘ndrangheta-style organised crime group operating in the areas of Reggio Emila, Parma, Modena and Piacenza, historically linked to the cosca Grande Aracri from Cutro (KR)
In 1977, the affected party moved to Bologna, where he had partnerships in construction and real estate companies. He was arrested on 28.01.2015 within operation “Aemilia”, together with 202 persons, under art. 416 bis c.p. for belonging to the above-mentioned organised crime group. He is currently detained.
The subject played a crucial role, acting as a link between the mafia-style cosca and the members of local bodies, strengthening and encouraging the economic growth of the syndicate.
The order of seizure involved no. 57 real estate assets, including a prestigious villa in Reggio Emilia, industrial buildings and land plots in Emilia Romagna and Calabria, no. 1 real estate company, no. 5 commercial vehicles and cars and over 50 bank accounts in different credit institutions.
In 2020, the court ordered to put the subject under Special Surveillance of Public Security for 5 years. The measure was to be applied after the subject had served the 10-year-and-8 month final sentence issued by the Court of Appeal in Bologna on 17.12.2020. On 07.05.2022, the judgment had the force of res judicata.
