German police raid businesses suspected of mafia ties (ANSA) - Berlin, November 19 - German police raided 25 properties and businesses in six states as part of a money-laundering investigation involving the 'Ndrangheta mafia, prosecutors said Tuesday.

The probe focused on the financing of a wind farm built in Crotone in Calabria, which was seized in July 2012 by Italian courts.

German authorities are especially interested in money transferred between banks in Italy and Germany's HSH Nordbank and suspect a link with the powerful, Calabria-based 'Ndrangheta mafia.
