Anti-mafia police seize millions from known marble supplier (ANSA) - Palermo, March 14 - Police in Sicily seized five million euros in assets from a high-end marble supplier who was able to dominate the market with alleged help from the Mafia. It was the latest police seizure of property from Giuseppe Bordonaro, 55, which all told amounts to 21 million euros. Police said he was able to win high-priced building contracts for his brand of Billiemi marble, among the most rare and expensive varieties, thanks to relationships with known Mobsters such as Angelo Siino, the Cosa Nostra's so-called "public works minister".
