Catanzaro, August 2 - Henry James Fitzsimons
landed at Rome's Fiumicino airport Friday morning after his
arrest and extradition from Senegal in a southern Italian mafia
probe.
A member of the Irish Republican Army (IRA), the Fitzsimons
served an eight-year prison sentence for terrorism in the United
Kingdom.
He was detained in Senegal following a warrant over alleged
money-laundering in the real-estate sector by the 'Ndrangheta
organized crime syndicate.
Operation ''Metropolis'' in March saw 20 arrest warrants
and the seizure of 450 million euros worth of assets over the
Ndrangheta's alleged use of intimidation and other illegal
tactics to assume control - both direct and indirect - over the
construction of dozens of tourism-residential complexes, mostly
located along the Ionian coast of Calabria, the southern Italian
region where the Ndrangheta's international crime group is
based.
Fitsimons is accused of investing in the developments with
members of the Ndrangheta's African offshoot.
Italian anti-mafia police believe laundering of illegal
proceeds is behind the enormous quantity of funds invested.
