In March 2022, the Public Prosecutor’s Office – Anti-Mafia District Directorate (DDA) – in charge of coordinating and directing the wide-ranging investigations carried out by the Direzione Investigativa Antimafia, a Directorate of the Department of Public Security, ordered to carry out an order of confiscation issued by the Court of Appeal in Potenza – Section Preventive Measures – against DI MURO Vincenzo, a member of the family bearing the same name from MELFI , which was involved in bloody struggles with rival groups and a great number of investigations developed by this Office.
DI MURO, who has long been living in Emilia Romagna, has several final convictions, including a conviction for belonging to a mafia-type association.
In compliance with the order issued by the Court of Appeal in Potenza – Section Preventive Measures -the Direzione Investigativa Antimafia seized real estate assets and plots of land in Emilia Romagna as well as the sums of money in the financial assets of the affected party and his relatives.
Recently, the Supreme Court of Cassation, based on the action taken against such a measure by DI MURO , has confirmed the judgement of the Court of Appeal in Potenza (except for the confiscation of the financial assets worth about 15,000.00 euros, for which the court ordered to make a referral to the Court of Appeal for a new judgement), which not only considered DI MAURO as socially dangerous but also ascertained that there was a significant disproportion between the assets of DI MAURO and his relatives and the income declared, as highlighted by the financial investigations carried out by the DIA officers and confirmed by the confiscation order carried out.
As a result of the judgement of the Court of Cassation, the confiscation order of the real estate assets worth about 1 million euros and registered for DI MURO Vincenzo and his relatives cannot be revoked.
This important result is part of the investigative activities carried out by the DDA and the DIA aimed at attacking illicitly gained assets, which has become one of the primary objectives of our Office.
Attacking and confiscating the huge assets, which are directly or indirectly linked to organized crime members is one of the most effective State responses.
