All the branches of the ‘Ndrangheta’ between the continents are here

“Capillary proliferation beyond national borders”, drug trafficking, anti-Mafia law and “loose networks” of financial institutions abroad and “tax havens” abroad. The sprawling global ‘Ndrangheta’ emerges from Dia’s latest semi-annual report for confirmation and plastic, which ‘accurately’ maps ‘the dynamics of fueling the global Calabrian gang deal industry in drug trafficking. .

Transnational dynamics

Thea first describes the general context. “Overall, Italian organized crime has confirmed itself as one of the main global players, showing a clear economic and entrepreneurial profession, with a flexible organizational structure that does not affect the inseparable historical link with the territory of origin. ‘Is very clear, precisely because of the privileged relationships established with drug manufacturers in Latin America, which created the role of global ‘leader’. Knows how to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the territories, and promotes the establishment of “large mesh” regulatory bodies in the adopted States and easily reinvests illegal capital. Let’s do. The corruption scandal that erupted in Operation All World One Nation is significant, showing the ability of criminal units to obtain unauthorized permits to conduct mining operations in Côte d’Ivoire. Another indication related to the ability of associations to extend their sphere of influence abroad is the prolonged inactivity of Calabrian bosses outside our country, which demonstrates the wide spread of “entrangata” beyond national borders. . In this regard, on May 24, 2021, along with a member of the Volpiano Club in Joao Pessoa, Brazil, Interpol and Brazilian boss Rocco Morabido were arrested by Carbinieri in an operation carried out by Brazilian police. Is exemplary. In 2017, the boss was discovered by carabiner with DCSA operational support in Ponta del Este in Uruguay and apprehended by local police. However, in 2019 he was able to escape shortly after Italy’s extradition request was accepted by the Uruguayan criminal court.

Business on the Old Continent

The “radar” of anti-Mafia investigators monitors the presence of Ndrangheta in much of Europe. In Spain – writes Thea again – “Calabrian organized crime” began a murderous operation consisting in using the strong links of drug traffickers with criminal organizations to negotiate drug trafficking: Molo 13 “results in an action against the Clas clan . Cardavalle. “Another aspect involving Calabrian ‘Entrine in Spanish territory is related to illicit money laundering and aid to subsidiaries”, as evidenced by the arrest of a member of Romeo Stoche de Barcelona. The San Luca clan has been added to the Interior Ministry’s list of dangerous fugitives. In France, Ndrangheta, above all, chose the Côte d’Azur as a settlement, which is at the heart of the affairs of sects like the Raso-Gulles-Albanian clan of Novgorod. The UK is also interested in “various domestic mafias that infiltrate the UK economic structure, exploit the proceeds of investment and money laundering activities, and exploit the vulnerabilities and peculiarities of Anglo-Saxon company law”. . Operation “Rinascita Scott” enabled numerous recycling operations carried out by the Mancuso di Limbadi clan in the United Kingdom. In addition, other intelligence operations have already revealed Ndrangheta’s involvement in some recycling operations, carried out by UK-based companies using so-called “Chinese boxes”. Another migration site for Calabrian thighs is Belgium, where “Entrangata exploits the port of Antwerp, using international intermediaries to pave the way for the large-scale smuggling of narcotics into Europe from all over South America”. Same dynamic from the port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands: “Ndrangheta, with the most active and affiliated criminal organization in the Netherlands to date – Thea – is mainly dedicated to drug trafficking activities. Recycling”. The Spirited Enclave, apparently represented by the Germans: the Roméo-Belle-Votari and Nirda-Strancio clans of San Luca, was able to penetrate further into the German economy. In a concentrated way in the territory through a system, it is characterized by wide margins of functional autonomy, although it is gradually linked to the land of origin.This modernized structure, but at the same time linked to the cornerstone of its origins, is today one of the major criminal subjects, managing to give life to many economic sectors, especially the restaurant sector, involving a sector of illegal activities. Are recycled. This allows huge revenues from drug trafficking and inaction of the related subjects requested by the Italian and foreign authorities. The presence of the ‘Ndrangheta’ in Austria, the Czech Republic and especially in the Slovak Republic, since “blocked”, underlines its territory – Thea – represents a “libera economicization” an opportunity for the “Calabrian clans” to launch economic activities, thanks to the opening of new trade channels. Over the years, Vibonese associations have become more complex. He was able to make huge profits through recycling and fraudulent activities, which claimed the greatest victims in the banking sector, as well as by entering the agribusiness sector. “The presence of Ndrangheta in Romania, mainly active in the field of financial crime, is above all linked to the existence of the Grande Aragris clan, a criminal association closely integrated into the Romanian economic structure, but not only. The Regio clans also seem interested in exploiting Roman territory through the “Platinum Dia” operation. Then there is – according to Dia’s analysis – the island of Malta which, “thanks to its strategic position in the Mediterranean and its absolutely favorable and almost bureaucratic tax regime, represents an ideal environment for criminal organisations”.

‘Ndrangheta beyond Europe

In non-European areas of Thea, ‘Ndrangheta was found in the United States and settled in Canada, particularly in the Toronto and Thunder Bay areas. Entrangata’s hierarchical-mafia system was recognized for the first time with all “regular” attributes. “The presence of the Italian mafia in Canada – remembers Dia – was manifested in spectacular fashion through the Horrific Homicide Commission, the last time a brother of another man was transferred there in July 2020 against a leading member of the “Ndrangheta” family. Murdered in 2017. Not to mention Australia and Latin America. “Italian mafias, camouflaged in the presence of comrades on a large scale, were able to engage in drug trafficking and develop their illegal activities…in this lucrative contraband. The criminal – explains Dia – plays a leading role ‘Ndrangheta, thanks to his alliance with Mexican narcotics, manages relations between the major continents between the United States and Europe, and subsequently European trade.
