Rome, November 7 - A group of 12 women were among
the 48 arrests carried out Wednesday by police near Naples in an
operation against the local Camorra mafia.
The women from the town of Torre del Greco on the foothills
of Mount Vesuvius had taken over the duties of their jailed
husbands, fathers and brothers in managing the drugs trade and
other illegal activities like extortion.
Investigators found that while the women began by simply
communicating orders received from their jailed kin to
associates, with the passing of time they became increasingly
entrepreneurial and took over management of their crime
families' finances, including paying their pushers' and their
family lawyers' 'salaries'.
Police investigators deciphered the criminal activities
through thousands of wire taps as well as with the help of local
informants.
Police also seized assets worth up to 30 million euros as
part of the operation.
