The Direzione Investigativa Antimafia carried out a seizure order of assets, issued by the Court in Santa Maria Capua Vetere – Section Preventive Measures – upon a joint proposal by the Public Prosecutor in Naples and the Director of the DIA, against an entrepreneur operating in the waste disposal and building sectors in the provinces of Naples and Caserta.
The affected person, heading a corporate group achieved a dominant position in this sector, due to his privileged relationship with Michele and Pasquale Zagaria, documented by the investigations conducted by the Antimafia District Directorate in Naples. In 2021, the Court in S. Maria Capua Veter, sentenced him in first instance to 7 years in prison for external support of a mafia-type association.
The investigation reconstructed a significant part of the facts concerning the waste emergency in Campania and the activities of mafia-type companies in the transportation sector, the building of waste disposal sites, the preparation of the places where to store the ‘ecobales’ and waste management in WDF (waste derived fuel).
Over the years, the entrepreneurial group, linked to the party affected by the seizure order, guaranteed the camorra clans an apparent legal image in the waste disposal and building sectors. Due to a steady growth of turnover and resources, the group succeeded in participating also in great public tenders, becoming a stable intermediary between the camorra organisation and public entities.
The preventive seizure order, targeting assets for an overall estimated value of approx. 4 million euros, concerned assets in the direct or indirect availability of the entrepreneur: 2 companies; 21 real estate properties located in the provinces of Caserta, Naples and Latina (6 plots of land and 15 buildings), including a villa in Sperlonga (LT); 15 financial assets; 2 vehicles.
