The Direzione Investigativa Antimafia carried out an order of final confiscation, issued by the Supreme Court of Cassation – 5th Criminal Section – of the assets linked to an individual from Bitonto (BA) worth over one million euros. The confiscation followed the order of asset-related preventive seizure issued by the court in Bari in 2019.
The confiscation carried out is the outcome of a complex investigation led by the DIA officers aimed at tracing the social dangerousness of the affected party and at identifying the assets and the financial resources linked to the individual or his family members.
The party affected by the preventive measure was acknowledged as socially dangerous due to his great number of criminal records for violent crimes or crimes committed to make profits and a criminal record for mafia-type association.
Within the evidence gathered during the criminal proceedings, some hints emerged highlighting that the individual was to be considered as socially dangerous since his tendency to commit crimes had been well-structured and constant over a long period of time.
The asset-related investigations carried out by the DIA and coordinated by the Public Prosecutor’s Office and the Antimafia District Directorate ascertained the great disproportion between the property and the income of the affected party and of his family members.
The order of confiscation involved real estate assets, cars, company shares, corporate assets and current accounts.
This result is in line with the institutional activities carried out by the Direzione Investigativa Antimafia aimed at tackling illicitly gained assets which are directly or indirectly linked to crime groups and safeguarding the healthy sector of national economy.
