Milan, May 14 - Police near Milan on Tuesday
morning arrested seven people accused of having links to
organized crime.
The arrests include some local entrepreneurs and public
officials and the charges include corruption and fraud in public
procurement contracts.
The investigation which lead to the arrests helped police
uncover direct and indirect links between some of the arrested
entrepreneurs and local operatives of the Calabrian-based
'Ndrangheta crime syndicate who are already at the center of
another investigation, called 'Infinite', and lead to the
discovery of a well-established system of corruption in awarding
public works projects.
The investigation, which lead to Tuesday's arrests, began
in 2012, when officials of the town government of Desio, near
Milan, asked Carabinieri police to investigate the process which
lead to the awarding of certain public works contracts by the
town government's own offices.
'Ndrangheta (from a Greek word meaning 'heroism' or
virtue') once lived in the twin shadow of its Sicilian cousin
Cosa Nostra and the Camorra in Naples, but now operates widely
throughout Italy and has stretched operations into Europe.
