Messina, February 15 - Italian police on Friday
arrested five people in connection with Mafia infiltration of
contracts to build wind farms in eastern Sicily.
The arrests included a mayor and a town councillor near
Messina across the strait from Calabria, police said.
Cosa Nostra has been trying to get into the renewable-energy
and wind-farm business for years, Italian investigators say.
In December police arrested six people and seized 10 billion
euros in assets in a probe into suspected Mafia infiltration of
other renewable-energy facilities in western Sicily.
The proceeds from contracts are believed to have gone to
fugitive Cosa Nostra head Matteo Messina Denaro.
Police said Mafia members got contracts for work on wind
farms and solar-energy plants near Agrigento, Palermo and
Trapani.
A wave of arrests over recent years have closed the net
around 50-year-old Agrigento-based boss Denaro, one of the
world's 10 most-wanted men, who took control of Cosa
Nostra after the 2006 arrest of Bernardo Provenzano.
