Reggio Calabria, October 22 - Italian police on
Monday seized a building in the Calabrian city of Palmi regarded
as a symbol of the sway of the locally based 'Ndrangheta mafia,
the world's most powerful crime syndicate.
The four-storey building with five apartments and four
basement meeting rooms, surrounded by large grounds with high
walls and an imposing gate, was "the symbol of the mafia power
exerted over the area by the Gallico' clan," prosecutors said.
The building, worth an estimated three million euros, was
impounded on the orders of the local office of Italy's
anti-mafia department.
'Ndrangheta has overtaken Cosa Nostra as Italy's richest
mafia, whose impenetrability is matched by its international
reach.
It controls the European cocaine trade and has branches
throughout Italy, northern Europe, Canada and Australia.
