Police seize Camorra stores and assets in Rome worth 7 mn

Apartments and firm in Naples and Reggio Calabria hit too

(ANSA) - Rome, April 11 - Italian police in Rome have seized stores, restaurants, apartments and assets worth seven million euros from three Neapolitan entrepreneurs allegedly linked to the Campania-based Camorra crime syndicate, investigators said Friday.

The operation follows the arrest in January of the three businessmen - brothers Luigi, Antonio and Salvatore Righi - and the seizure of several pizza outlets and restaurants they owned in downtown Rome.

The Righi brothers are accused of money laundering on behalf of the Contini Camorra clan. The new operation has led to the shutdown of an ice cream parlor on the central Via del Tritone street and three bars and pizza outlets in the famous Piazza Navona and Piazza di Spagna squares. Police also seized apartments in Naples and a company in Reggio Calabria.
