Italian Police Seize $156M In Mob Assets

NAPLES, Italy, Aug. 5 (UPI) — Italian police say they seized 60 properties Friday from a mob boss in the Camorra’s Casalesi clan — among more than $156 million in assets seized.

The seizures from one of the clan’s bosses, Salvatore Belforte, included a more than 13,123-square-foot villa, the Italian news agency ANSA reported.

“This is the heaviest assets blow ever inflicted on criminal organizations in Campania,” police said.

Casal di Principe, the home base of the Casalesi, is between Naples and Caserta in the Campania region.

Police also reported the fatal shooting of a member of the Camorra in Naples. He was struck by 12 bullets, ANSA said.

Writer Robert Saviano, who exposed the Casalesi clan in his 2006 book Gomorrah, which became a film, has been under round-the-clock police protection because of death threats from the Casalesi.
