(ANSA) - New York, August 1 - The United States Treasury
Department on Wednesday froze the US assets of five bosses of
Italy's Camorra crime syndicate, including Antonio Iovine and
Michele Zagaria, jailed kingpins of the notorious Casalesi clan.
The Treasury officially sanctioned the Camorra members by
freezing assets they have within the jurisdiction of the United
States and by prohibiting any transactions with them by US
persons.
"This action is designed to squeeze the Camorra out of the
global financial system and protect the U.S. financial system
from laundering its criminal proceeds," said US under secretary
for terrorism and financial intelligence, David S. Cohen, in a
statement. "We will continue to pursue members and supporters of
the Camorra, and today's action against the group's leadership
will help us cast an even larger net to expose their financial
facilitators and associates wherever they may operate".
US President Barack Obama in July 2011 identified the
Camorra as a "significant TCO", or transnational criminal
organization, and charged the Treasury with pursuing additional
sanctions against its members and supporters.
