Padua, October 26 - Italy's antimafia prosecutor
Piero Grasso warned that northern Italy could be at risk of
becoming a money laundering hub as financially struggling
companies are in danger of being snapped up by those seeking to
recycle funds of dubious origin.
"It is a fact that some (crime syndicates) with extra
funds, with liquidity, seek to infiltrate the healthy sectors of
the economy with dirty money," Grasso said speaking at
conference in Padua.
"From this point of view the north and also the Veneto
region are at risk".
The city of Padua is in the Veneto region.
"The risk is that mafia emissaries purchase companies that
are suffering financially at rock bottom prices", he added.
"We need to avoid this by keeping our eyes wide open and
keeping the spotlight on strange phenomenon".
Grasso went on to add that banks had an essential role in
monitoring irregular activities as they were obliged to signal
any suspicious activities to the authorities.
