Reggio Calabria, July 12 -Italian police on Friday
arrested the mayor of a Calabrian town in a probe into the
Calabria-based 'Ndrangheta mafia's vote-buying and
contract-rigging there and investment of dirty money in other
parts of Italy.
Pasquale Basile and five of his councillors were arrested
on suspicion of granting 'Ndrangheta members lucrative
contracts.
In all, 38 people were detained in the provinces of
Cosenza, Bari, Matera, Terni and Salerno.
Police seized 60 million euros in assets, mainly in Lazio
and Umbria.
They included 22 companies, 81 properties, several shops
and plots of land as well as two yachts and 33 cars including
Jaguars, Bmws, Mercedes and vintage cars.
Police froze 78 bank accounts and 23 insurance policies.
'Ndrangheta, Italy's richest mafia, controls the European
cocaine market.
