A massive mafia-busting- blitz  led by a special squad  of Italian police  saw 169 arrests of people suspected of involvement in the notorious ‘Ndrangheta  crime syndicate   in several Italian regions and in Germany on Tuesday. reports Ansa News

The anti-mafia operation was rooted  in an investigation into the activities of the  Farao-Marincola clan  led by the former fugitive boss  Silvio Farao, who was   captured in 2014

The infamous  clan’s infiltration of economic sectors allegedly allowed it to structure itself as ‘criminal holding’ conducting business worth millions of euros.

Assets worth a whopping   50 million euros were seized and two mayors in the province of Crotone, in the southern region of Calabria, were among the people arrested.
