Italian and German police forces launch serious attacks against ‘Ndrangheta Mafia’


Inflicting a serious injury on the infamous ‘Ndrangheta Mafia’, the Italian and German police forces have arrested nearly one hundred and sixty nine people, who have direct or indirect connections with the dangerous criminal gang.

It is the first time that such a serious operation against the powerful criminal gang has been jointly conducted by the Italian and German police forces.

Ndrangheta is one of the most notorious criminal gangs operating in the European continent. It runs powerful extortion and money laundering network, apart from a deep rooted narcotics trafficking network.

The latest arrests have been made to contain the criminal gang’s efforts to force the German restaurants to buy the products such as wine, pizza dough and pastries made by those living in the southern region of Italy.

The criminal gang is originally based in the Italian region of Calabria. The gang enjoys the support of the infamous criminal network ‘Sicilian Mafia’.

During the 1900s, and during the 2000s, the gang was much more powerful than how powerful it is now. In its heydays, its operations were limited to Italy.

The unfortunate fact is that though now it is not powerful in Italy, it has managed to develop a powerful criminal network across the European continent.
