On 15 March, Malta Today reported that the Santapaola-Ercolano clan has had long-time links to Maltese remote gaming companies. It is alleged to have facilitated the evasion of some €30 million in tax by Italian finance police. Operation ‘Doppio Gioco’ has resulted in the seizure of over €80 million in assets from an online sports betting operation with branches in Malta, Germany, Poland and various Italian cities. Maltese companies laundered over €62 million through acquisition of land, buildings, companies in Apulia and Emilia Romangna, and Germany. Previous links between the clan with Malta have already appeared in connection with the Italian arrests of Maltese nationals Darren Debono and Gordon Debono implicated in a €30 million oil smuggling ring.
