The mob and criminal motorcycle gangs will always screw over society in pursuit of their criminal aims, this isn’t rocket science.
One of Italy’s largest migrant centres was mafia-run, say police
A police operation in the early hours of the morning led to 68 arrests, many of whom belonged to the Arena clan, part of the powerful Calabria-based ‘Ndrangheta mafia.
The clan reportedly made millions through its involvement in the running of a reception centre for migrants in Isola di Capo Rizzuto, Calabria – one of the largest in the country.
“Over 500 agents overnight arrested 68 people… accused of mafia association, extortion, carrying illegal weapons, fraud, embezzlement to the detriment of the state, (and) theft,” police in Catanzaro said in a statement.
Their investigation revealed “that the clan controlled, for profit, the management of the reception centre” at Isola di Capo Rizzuto – which has held up to 1,500 migrants at a time – and had been doing so for over a decade.
