The Direzione Investigativa Antimafia carried out an order of preventive seizure, issued by the Court in Bari – 3rd Criminal Section – functioning as Court for Preventive Measures. The seized assets amounted to one million euros and were linked to an individual in Trinitapoli (BAT). This link emerged from the proceeding enforcing the mentioned preventive seizure but must be cross-examined with the defence counsel.
The order is the outcome of a complex investigation carried out by the DIA officers aimed at back-tracking his social dangerousness and identifying the capital and financial assets linked to this individual and his family members.
The social dangerousness of the individual (at this stage and unless differently established by the cross-examination with the defence counsel) is based on his involvement in complex investigations which had reportedly revealed a drug trafficking crime group selling drugs in Trinitapoli (BAT).
In the light of the evidence obtained in criminal proceedings, the individual has been arrested several times for drug-related offences and arms trafficking.
The asset-related investigations carried out by the DIA allowed investigators to ascertain the huge disproportion between his assets and his income.
Today’s order of seizure involved 23 real estate properties, mainly parcels of arable lands, fruit orchards and a farm in BAT, as well as financial assets in current accounts and saving deposits.
Today’s result is part of the institutional activities of the Direzione Investigativa Antimafia aimed at attacking the illicitly gained assets which are directly or indirectly linked to criminal activities, thus protecting and safeguarding the healthy sector of the national economy.
