ANSA) – Naples, April 6 – Italian Anti-Mafia police on Wednesday seized some 13 million euros in assets from  Cipriano Chianese, the suspected ‘garbage king’ of the notorious Casalesi clan in the Neapolitan Camorra mafia  


Among the assets seized were luxury villas at the exclusive resort of Sperlonga between Rome and Naples, mansions near Caserta and industrial warehouses around Padua. Justice Minister Angelino Alfano hailed the operation as an “extraordinary success” and said it had “inflicted a hard blow to the finances of the Casalesi clan and, in particular, to the interests of an entrepreneur believed to be a protagonist of the largest Camorra penetration in the waste sector and the ecomafia system in Campania”.
