The Direzione Investigativa Antimafia, a directorate of the Department of Public Security, carried out an order of final confiscation issued by the Court of Appeal in Bologna against an entrepreneur in Ravenna operating in the wine sector.
The affected party was involved in several judicial proceedings, which resulted in his conviction for criminal association for the purpose of fraud as well as for several tax crimes. He was arrested in 2017 by the DIA within a previous money laundering and self- laundering investigation.
Based on the checks carried out, the Court in Bologna ordered in June 2021 the confiscation of his assets, highlighting a generic social dangerousness of the entrepreneur, having lived “habitually, also partly, off the proceeds of crime” and a qualified social dangerousness, being suspected of having “fraudulently transferred” company shares in favor of his cohabiting partner.
The decision of the Court of Appeal in Bologna became irrevocable in March 2023 and confirmed the Decree of the Court, ordering the confiscation carried out today, which involved 9 companies active in the wine sector, 74 real estate assets, 6 registered movable assets and 22 financial relations ( two of which at a credit institute in San Marino), with an overall estimated value of more than 50 million euros.
The confiscation is part of the institutional activities aimed at attacking illicitly gained assets, which are directly or indirectly linked to mafia-type crime contexts so to safeguard the domestic healthy economy.
