(ANSA) - Rome, October 18 - Italian police arrested 52
people in a country-wide sting against an alleged
mafia-organized cocaine ring on Thursday.
Anti-mafia investigators said they found evidence of use of
commercial maritime routes to import drugs from Colombia and
Equador, for delivery to Europe via the ports of Hamburg and
Antwerp.
Investigators found the cartel behind the international
drug operation consisted of Milanese gangs belonging to the
Calabrian-born 'Ndrangheta syndicate who collaborated with
members of Sicily's Cosa Nostra in Palermo and Gela.
"A Milan-based cartel of various 'Ndrangheta gangs was
formed for cocaine destined for Belgium, Germany, Holland and
Austria, as well as Italy," read a note from the police.
The Milan-based criminal investigation was prompted by the
murder of a drug-trafficker a few years ago.
