‘Ndrangheta drug operation busted by authorities in Italy, Belgium and Germany

By Gangsters Inc. Editors

Authorities in Italy, Belgium and Germany joined forces with Eurojust and Europol in a new operation against the Calabrian Mafia, known as the ‘Ndrangheta, and its drug trafficking activities. Today, 31 suspects were arrested and assets worth over €3.8 million euros were seized.

The operation is a follow-up to a previous investigation conducted by the Italian authorities between 2013 and 2018 against the same criminal network. The suspects allegedly continued to use the existing and well-established network to transport mainly cocaine from South America to Germany and Italy via several European ports.

To this end, the group set up businesses in Germany to facilitate the drug smuggling. To cover its drug transports, its members used international companies trading in cars and food.

Police arrested 18 suspects in Italy, 8 in Belgium and 5 in Germany. A total of 53 searches were carried out. Assets worth over €3.8 million were seized, including cash, drugs, luxury vehicles and property.
