Rome, December 7 - Italian local administrators
received 270 threats by mafia organisations in 2011, up 27% over
the previous year according to a new report released on Friday.
The figure translates into one act of intimidation every 34
hours.
Of the 270 recorded incidents, 233 were aimed directly at a
person and 37 were indirect, targeting public property, the
report by Avviso Pubblico, an association of local and regional
governments, showed.
The largest number of mafia threats (31%) were recorded in
the southern region of Calabria, followed by the islands of
Sicily (25%) and Sardinia (13%).
Administrators in the northern region of Lombardy were also
targeted for the first time, with 9 cases reported.
Seven cases were registered in Lazio, particularly in Rome
province.
This year 25 local administrations have been dissolved due
to mafia infiltration, the highest number on record, according
to the same report.
