Businessman arrested for tax evasion, another 18 probed

Finance cops seize 40 million in assets

(ANSA) - Naples, July 16 - Finance and anti-mafia police on Thursday arrested a businessman and seized assets worth over 40 million euros as part of an anti-tax-evasion operation targeting the Neapolitan Camorra crime organisation.
    Morgan Meluzio from the town of Battipaglia in Salerno province was arrested and another 18 people were probed on charges of racketeering, using front men to falsify asset ownership, attempted fraud, and issuing false invoices.
    Assets seized in Campobasso, Rome and Salerno provinces as well as overseas in Bulgaria included 11 dairy and trash collection companies, six buildings and lots of land, five large-cylinder vehicles, two large pleasure boats, stocks, and accounts in some 40 banks.
    Investigators say the assets amounted to much more than the suspects' declared income.
