The Direzione Investigativa Antimafia, a directorate within the Department of Public Security, carried out a confiscation order, issued by the Court in Reggio Calabria, against a 65-year-old person from Cittanova (RC), but living for many years in Albenga (SV).
The man is deemed to be close to a cosca of the ‘ndrangheta from Cittanova, whose operational tentacles in Ligury had been confirmed by the results of a previous investigation. At the end of said investigation, the DIA and the Italian State Police carried out a pre-trial custody order against 42 persons accused of alleged mafia-type association, fictitious registration of goods, and corruption. The affected person is among them.
Specifically, the above-mentioned person had the strategic function to convey the communication among the different affiliates of the clan and his brother, boss and promoter of the cosca.
Notwithstanding the fact, that he was acquitted by the Court in Palmi in July 2020, the Court in Reggio Calabria issued the confiscation order, considering that the set of evidence, stemming from the previous investigation, anyway determined his social dangerousness due to his closeness to the criminal syndicate.
The confiscation order involved 2 immovable assets and 1 banking relationship for a total amount of 400,000 euros approx.
Today’s result is the outcome of institutional activities aimed at countering illegal assets and linked, directly or indirectly, to criminal mafia-type phenomena, thus protecting the healthy part of the national economic tissue.
