Rome, May 31 - Former Naples prefect Alessandro

Antonio Manganelli who died in March.
Pansa, 62, worked closely with the highly respected
Manganelli and their then-commander Gianni De Gennaro at the

of Interior Minister Angelino Alfano.
Pansa, who was born in Eboli in Salerno province, studied
law in Naples and began police work in 1975 in Calabria.
From there, he made a steady climb through the ranks of
various police forces, specializing in organized crime and drug
trafficking at the national and international level before
eventually moving into the field of economic crime
investigation.
In 1996, he became director in the State police where he
continued in investigations of international criminal
organizations.
Pansa become central director of Italy's immigration and
border police in 2003 and within two years, was promoted to
deputy chief as well as director of criminal investigations.
He also began director of the joint Criminalpol
organization, which implements government policies related to
crime fighting.
In 2007, Pansa was appointed prefect of Naples and was
quickly drawn into a major investigation of the Campania
region's waste emergency.
