Mafias using violence less, infiltration more - report

Clans increasingly operate 'in synch' with white-collar workers

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 22 - Italy's mafia organizations are increasingly changing the way they operate, using less violence and more "silent infiltration" of the economy by working in synch with white-collar workers, according to the latest report to parliament by the Antimafia Investigative Directorate (DIA).
    The report added that Sicily's Cosa Nostra, Campania's Camorra and the Calabria-based 'Ndrangheta syndicate were taking advantage of the COVID-19 emergency.
    "The tendency to infiltrate the healthy social and economic fabric in a widespread way," has increased during the pandemic, the report said. (ANSA).
