Rome police arrest 29 in anti-Camorra mafia sweep
400 million euros of properties and companies sequestered04 February, 12:39
Assets worth around 400 million euros were also confiscated in the operation, including properties in Rome, Gorizia, Genoa and Caserta and companies operating in the fields of property, construction, food and hospitality, car sales, financial investment, betting, and stud farms.
Investigators said the assets derived from illegal activities organised by the 'Zazo' crime family, including drug trafficking and extortion of shopkeepers and businesspeople in the Fuorigrotta district of Naples. The Camorra has been extending its grip beyond its home patch in the province of Naples in recent years and there are concerns that it and other organised crime gangs are becoming increasingly strong in the capital.
