Grillo says Rome mafia 'afraid of us'

5-Star Movement leader responds to wire taps

(ANSA) - Rome, December 10 - The leader of anti-establishmen 5-Star Movement (M5S) Beppe Grillo said Wednesday the recently uncovered Rome mafia dubbed 'Mafia Capitale' is afraid of his party, not Italian Premier Matteo Renzi's Democratic Party (PD).
    "I just read the wiretaps of Carminati and Buzzi that talk about me: Mafia Capitale is afraid of us. Not the PD," Grillo tweeted.
    In a telephone conversation intercepted by police, Salvatore Buzzi, right-hand man to Mafia Capitale boss Massimo Carminati, was recorded in 2013 saying, "The problem is that we aren't in anymore, it's incredible, Grillo has managed to destroy PD".
