Italian Police Swoop On Alleged Online Gambling Organised Crime

11 arrest warrants executed on Mafia suspects

Italian police mounted an anti-organised crime operation Wednesday, executing 11 arrest warrants on suspects linked to various mafia organisations who allegedly have been illegally managing a major proportion of the video lottery and online gambling business in Italy, along with similar activities abroad.

Police sources did not release detailed information, but told local reporters that among those arrested was a senior member of the Calabrian-based 'Ndrangheta mafia, and a businessman in the gambling sector who is linked to a clan of Campania's Camorra syndicate.

Property and other assets worth tens of millions of Euros were seized in Wednesday's police action, code-named 'The Imitation Game'.
