OIL HEIRESS AMONG DOZENS ARRESTED AS ITALIAN POLICE DISRUPT MAFIA FUEL FRAUD

On 8 April, the Guardian reported that dozens of people have been arrested, including an oil heiress and singer Anna Bettozzi, who was found with €300,000 in cash when her Rolls-Royce was pulled over in 2019, as Italian police disrupted a massive fuel fraud by mafia groups – and allegedly carried out by different clans within the Naples’ Camorra and Calabrian ’Ndrangheta syndicates.  It is said that more than €173 million has been laundered in various oil-related schemes investigated by police since 2015.  The investigation into the oil fraud schemes of the ’Ndrangheta groups is related to a massive operation against the mafia group in December 2019 that resulted in the arrest of more than 300 people.
