From the first light of dawn, the financiers of the Tax Police of Reggio Calabria, the scico of Rome and the Group of Locri the Guardia di Finanza are performing an order of preventive detention against 20 individuals for crimes of mafia association, fraudulent transfer of value and reinvestment of capital offenses and the seizure of movable and immovable property, company and holiday villages with a total value of approximately € 450 million.

The investigation, which also had a strong international flavor, coordinated by the Chief Prosecutor of the Republic acting Ottavio Sferlazza of Reggio Calabria, were directed by the Attorney Added - Dr. Nicola GRATTERI and Substitutes Prosecutors DDA - Dr. M.L. MIRANDA and Dr. Paul SIRLEO.

The investigations made it possible to ascertain how the gangs MORABITO and AQUINO, through an extensive and complex network of Italian and foreign companies, were able to secure by force mafia intimidation, management, control and execution of tens of important and well-known tourist and residential real estate complexes, located in the most beautiful beach areas of the Region Calabria.

In particular, starting from a "passenger inspection", made in 2008 by a Department of the Body of Bari, who left to assume the involvement of persons linked to the 'Ndrangheta in the construction of a hotel-tourist complex, due to METROPOLIS 2007 Srl, was expanded spectrum investigation in the management of many tourist and residential complex in Calabria, was able to show a cross-plot of interests between the powerful clans of the 'Ndrangheta and MORABITO AQUINO and important Spanish entrepreneurs.
The development of the investigation - carried out mainly with articulated technical activities - made it possible to reconstruct the branching investment in tourism by individuals Calabrian and Spanish, to turn into business with members of the top of the 'Ndrangheta of Jonica, which - ultimately - were found to be the real creators and promoters of the incredible business.

In detail, it was found that, from 2005, was created a true "joint ventures" between members of organized crime Calabrian and Spanish entrepreneurs, which has given rise to a complex network of companies, both Italian and foreign, aimed at the real estate construction for the residential tourism sector.

In rebuilding the "corporate Filieria Italian-Spanish", it has emerged that investment millionaires were the result of the specific will of the 'ndrine MORABITO and AQUINO, which - through the unquestioned power over the territory - had basically monopolized the industry, relying too the total "availability" of infidels municipal officials.

In practice, all investments identified are part of a "center of interest occult", well organized and connected, which made it possible to give the phenomenon a key unit and vertically, allowing at the same time to determine the criminal liability of individuals.

In this context, the leaders of the summit involved are the expression of the clans that govern the territory ion, even though the investment has been covered by other parts of Calabria and, specifically, the Province of Catanzaro and Vibo Valentia.

The investigations made it possible to document how in this lucrative business there was also added a subject considered by British investigators close to the IRA, the Irish terrorist organization, who had found precisely in relation to criminal organizations Calabrian how to reuse the large sums of money in his possession, through the intermediary of a well-known entrepreneur in Campania.

A "entrepreneurship 'Ndrangheta" and a new way of "doing mafia", where you do not shoot and can not be killed, but creates bonds of affiliation resulting from a single matrix: money and the unjust enrichment, with a total transposition of the most grim and customary mode mafia - in this cleverly "highly polished" from the screen provided by a series of legal persons - in the business world and the legal economy.

In conclusion, the operation today confirms that the clans of the 'Ndrangheta continue to achieve unjust and illegal profits and benefits, through a control, almost total area of ​​competence and its economic and productive activities, but with an innovation in terms of setting their relationship with the territory: in fact, investigations have also found that the interest of organized crime was also to create social consensus in public opinion, through the hiring of local workers and the creation of a trade with the induced 'arrival of foreigners, the main buyers of property made, such as to promote greater acceptance in the territory of the presence of criminal organizations.

Thus, what has emerged from the investigation today is the image of a 'Ndrangheta international and modern, with a structure and complex, with an attitude of colonization and expansion, in line with the real world economic and financial holding company, which has reached the maximum operational efficiency even in the world and with a leadership position thanks to a reliable personal and business now consolidated in time.

I am checking this with a notary. My understanding is that if you have a valid notary act your property cannot be confiscated.

I also would like to add that my company has not been involved in any of the developments mentioned and has always made an effort to do a due diligence that goes beyond legal and official information.

You will note Marasusa in the list and on our website, in Marasusa we sold the apartments in another block, directly for the owners, not the ones belonging to Bella Calabria.

Dennis.

17 holiday villages, 1,343 housing units, 12 companies, all assets of a value of € 450 million today came under seizure. A bargain when compared to the volumes unimaginable misery prevailing in the Ionian - precipitated at the bottom of the charts of living and income - but that did not treat the gangs alone.
Business associates of Rocco Morabito, son of the boss "Tiradritto" (been arrested in the raid today) and Rocco Aquino, respectively, at the top of the eponymous clan, were in fact not only a plethora of Spanish businessmen who in the course of the intercepted conversations - reported today the largest Mazzacuva Ferdinand - "Calabria defined the new Eldorado," in which to invest without any problem, but also a dark character gravitating around the IRA and Sinn Fein party, Henry James Fitzsimons, now a fugitive.
Already sentenced to 8 years for a bombing, Fitzsimons said the prosecutor Gratteri added: "He is the man delegated by the IRA to reinvest the proceeds of criminal activity and self-financing of the IRA. They had done this already in Portugal and Spain, so they started doing it in Italy. "
To get in touch with the former terrorist 'Ndrangheta of the district Ionian would have been a well-known entrepreneur Campania, Antonio Velardo, unlike the socio ended up in handcuffs. Together would then be entered into that - according to investigators - is set up as a real international joint venture between men of the 'ndrine and Spanish entrepreneurs, which has given rise to a complex network of companies, both Italian and foreign, aimed at creating real estate complexes for the tourism industry and residential.
A galaxy with a clear decision-making center, located in the Ionian and commandment refers to the elite of the Ndrangheta families in the area - the Morabito and Aquino - but that made use of the irreplaceable contribution of the law firm Giambrone and Law - located in Palermo and London, at this time sifted through by the men of Finance - to move those same Velardo and define Fitzsimons during a conversation intercepted "psychopaths movements of money," said the chief prosecutor acting Ottavio Sferlazza. An endless stream of capital triangolavano between North Europe, Spain and Calabria, and only thanks to a technical error that led to the bankruptcy of Italian screen has been reconstructed.

We are in Calabria at the moment and heard about these arrests earlier.

Today I received a PM asking me about a VFI development that I had previously posted about. I replied saying that I couldn't give any information as we had, thanks to our lawyer, pulled out at the initial stage... lost 3000 euros but that it was a drop in the ocean compared to what others had lost.

I didn't tie up the PM with the news but on hindsight wonder if it was merely coincidence or have others who have bought on the unfinished developments had a PM?

Posted March 5, 2013 by Roberto Galullo
journalist with experience in criminal economy and organized crime

The IRA, the military organization of Irish independence and the 'Ndrangheta do business together.

A survey reveal it is the Metropolis in which the anti-mafia prosecutor in Reggio Calabria today arrested 20 people linked to gangs and Morabito Aquino for the crimes of criminal association, fraudulent transfer of value and reinvestment of capital offenses and seized movable and immovable property to 450 million. The surveys were conducted by the Prosecutor added Nicola Gratteri and substitutes Maria Luisa Miranda and Paul Sirleo.

The link between the gangs and the army of Africo officially dissolved in 1998, is (would be) Henry James Fitzsimons, born 28 November 1949 in Belfast (Northern Ireland) and resident in Brancaleone (Reggio Calabria). According to the reconstruction of the Prosecutor, Fitzsimons is charged with promoting Ireland and Great Britain offer and reserve the property and provide potential customers with advice and assistance in buying and selling.

TERRORISM

Fitzsimons is a historical character of Irish terrorism, yet close to separatist political movements in Northern Ireland. The letter of request with England in 2009 showed that it is also close to the party of Sinn Féin, notoriously identified as the moderate and legally recognized the armed wing.

The membership of the IRA terrorists Fitzsimons - explicitly refers to the order on page 26 - in addition to the official channels and institutional proved, conclusively, by a series of wiretapped conversations.

After eight years in jail, just for the sake of terrorism, "invented" entrepreneur and dedicated to a series of major investments, multiple and varied. The wealth is absolutely invaluable and lively areas where winds are varied, as well as the geographical areas concerned.

To move capital and invest - supports the accusation - Fitzsimons does not care about having to justify the origin or ensure that such is lawful and even on some occasions peacefully admits to act on behalf of others. Its strength is in the financial structure put in place to support the economic: a series of bank accounts payable to nominees and placed in different countries many of which operate in off-shore. The system created is functional just to make the money of endless laps in order to evade origin and destinanzione.

Fitzsimons, with two other people (an entrepreneur Campania, Antonio Velardo and Cuppari Antonio, a Calabrian considered by the investigators inserted fully into the "local" 'Ndrangheta Africo with the dowry of "gospel"), since 2006 it would take money in the construction of tourist complex "Jewel of the sea" in the municipality of Brancaleone.

The resources used - allegedly - would likely result of crimes committed in Ireland and crimes of the clans of Africo and Brancaleone. In particular, are the fruit of drug trafficking.

A Fitzsimons and entrepreneur Campania heads the Vfi Overseas properties real estate Agent Ltd, based in Dublin, Central Chambers Dame Court no. 41. It is they who made it and fund it. This company offers - exclusively - to the company Rdv Ltd. Brancaleone (whose legal representative is the suspect linked to gang Morabito), a continuous influx of tourists / customers from Northern Europe to the purchase of real estate that faanno the building complex "Jewel of the sea", which is nothing more than the "Jewel of the sea".

FRIENDS

Among the entities referred to Fitzsimons uses, according to the prosecutor, the principal is the 'Neapolitan entrepreneur Velardo. He, for the DDA, is the hand across the entire country, one that follows the business field. The area it covers is investment property, having the same also different projects being carried out in Calabria.

By his own admission his riccherzza and prosperity was due to the relationship with Fitzsimons, so that should explain to those who knew him in the past that he had become suddenly rich. According to the DDA Reggio is fully inserted into the gears of the Irish financial and moves their capital by exploiting the off-shore financial structure and the nominee to ensure irretrievability capital. The entrepreneur is useful to Fitzsimons also for his knowledge of the territory, the ability to acquire information about counterparts in Calabria, the owners of the land, the possible real estate and corporate acquisitions.

THE JEWEL OF THE SEA

It is from this union that the prosecutor in Reggio can be assumed that it is the idea to create the "Jewel of the sea". The Neapolitan entrepreneur, moving in real estate investments in Calabria, learns (many are in fact the business usually proposed to him or that he search) the possibility to build near the coast of jasmine. This possibility was already known in the industry because there had been some attempts. So he turns to the family of reference in the area agree that participation in the development.

The construction of the village is entrusted to Rdv Antonio Cuppari, considered by investigators is an entity affiliated with the 'Ndrangheta of Morabito Africo. Has (have) the degree of "gospel," he repeated previous drug trafficking, has absolutely no business experience in the field of construction of tourist resorts.

Improvised, so creator of "Jewel of the sea". Also invests capital whose origin is unknown, and certainly not compared to its economic and financial capacity. Cuppari according to investigators is the man of the family Morabito for real estate investment, invests the money of illicit origin and participates in the profits of the building. Fitzsimons and Velardo are - according to the survey - co-financing of the company Cuppari and intermediaries in the sale of the apartments. In this way, they also participate in economic investment and clean up the money moved through revolutions "psychopaths" and coming from the unlawful past associated Fitzsimons. "Well, everyone has their own personal gain and the use of illicit proceeds - we read in the order - and the transaction will achieve the goal by the protagonists of the story, and allows to obtain useful results. Ovviamante is needless to say that the presence of local reference has provided to overcome any obstacle, even carratere bureaucratic and construction and above all the protection you need to operate on the territory, but, in contrast, claimed their rights therefore imposed the company for the construction of the village, reacted in their own way when there are disagreements and disputes incui financial. Sostanzialemente, therefore, from the information it is possible there is no doubt that in this tourist facility are going to merge two separate transactions illegal re-use of money: one engaged in by Antonio Cuppari, which takes in economic activity proceeds of crime, and a mail be from Fitzsimons, who, with the complicity of Velardo, employs laundering linked to terrorism and other crimes. "

LACK OF CO

With reference to Fitzsimons, the corresponding British and Irish authorities have not demonstrated a fully collaborative attitude towards the judicial Italian, not having provided information about the origin of the huge economic availability of the suspect and being limited to validating the data, already caught by Italian investigators through conversations captured during the investigation, that the same has been held (eight years) for terrorist offenses committed as a member of the separatist group IRA (Irish Republican Army).

It is in this membership and related links and activities that can be reasonably traced - according to prosecutors - ingentissimo the flow of money that the suspect has proven to have promptly and that, as stated by the same, is to be "recycling" in this assisted by his 'hook' Italian (his real long arm of the country) that the investigations have shown to be Velardo, investigated also significantly without significant income (from 2000 to 2007 said income for amounts between € 0.00 and 9305.00), but in constant contact - in a subordinate position to Fitzsimons - with subjects (often proved as Cuppari, members of organized crime) business.

According to the DDA Reggio Fitzsimons so that Velardo were well aware of what they themselves called it, so non-technical but quite significant, "recycling" (Fitzsimons), not to mention the explicit statements of Velardo, according to which "the money has to come in Ireland, then return to Italy, they make movements psychopaths "(16.2.2009), and that just talking with Cuppari (29.5.2009), he was able to say that" some customers pay in Russia and that money will have to take a ride particular.

Hi Dennis,

The sale on my property was completed nearly 5 years ago. I used a British based legal company and an Italian notary. Are properties owned by indviduals likely to be seized?

Kathryn


I have checked this with a lawyer who confirmed my opinion that this regards property belonging to the developers/builders whose assets have been seized. Also at the Marasusa in Parghelia I have been informed that only the few unsold units belonging to Bella Calabria have been seized.

Hope this helps,

Dennis.

I would hope that there should be no ownership problems as title should be good if the lawyers have done their job properly.

I suspect though that there may be problems in terms of the relationship with the new 'landlord'. Italian state bureaucracy may make it difficult to get things done in terms of decisions, actions, infrastructure and maintenance. Will there be smooth processes to pay bills for the complexes, employ staff, collect fees, answer queries etc? Who will people talk to if there's a leak in the roof and what will they (can they) do? Will they have any powers to do anything if, as seems likely, the seizures are contested?

Hi.

Thanks for all the postings on this topic.
Could anyone confirm if ALL JOTS buyers should be contacting the administrators (including those who have rescinded the contract and are taking legal action against any of the parties).

Many Thanks

If it was me I would contact the administrators to confirm your interest/ any legal claims you may have.

Rocco Aquino si è avvalso della facoltà di non rispondere all’interrogatorio di garanzia, professandosi innocente rispetto alle accuse contenute nei suoi confronti nell’ordinanza di custodia cautelare in carcere “Metropolis” notificategli nel carcere dell’Aquila dove si trova recluso in regime di 41-bis. Il 62enne, presunto boss dell’omonima famiglia di Marina di Gioiosa Ionica, assistito dall’avv. Giuseppe Scenna del foro dell’Aquila, in sostituzione del legale di fiducia, avv. Riccardo Misaggi del foro di Locri, ha scelto di non rispondere alle domande del gip competente per territorio, delegato dal magistrato reggino, giudice Massimo Minniti, firmatario della misura su richiesta della Procura distrettuale di Reggio Calabria. Nell’ambito dell’inchiesta denominata “Metropolis”, eseguita martedì scorso dalla Guardia di Finanza, nei confronti di venti persone, Rocco Aquino in particolare viene ritenuto un «socio occulto » e «amministratore di fatto » insieme a Rocco Morabito, delle società “Bella Calabria srl”, “BC Immobiliare srl”, entrambe con sede sociale a Bianco, all’interno delle quali il 62enne gioiosano avrebbe attribuito in maniera fittizia la titolarità formale delle quote sociali ai coindagati Domenico Vallone e Francesco Arcadi. Rocco Aquino, secondo la ricostruzione degli investigatori delle Fiamme gialle, sarebbe altresì «socio occulto» anche delle società “Isca dream srl” e “Lagano Costruzioni srl”, con sede a Isca sullo Ionio, in provincia di Catanzaro. L’indagato Aquino avrebbe inoltre intestato fittiziamente alla società “I m m o b iliare costruzioni turistiche srl”, con sede a Caulonia, la titolarità dei complessi immobiliari ubicati nello stesso comune ionico denominati ma concrete, spiegando la linearità degli investimenti e dei movimenti di denaro, completamente tracciabile, che proveniva dagli acquirenti stranieri degli immobili gestiti dalla società che gestiva insieme ad altri soci. Domenico Vallone, rispondendo alle domande del Gip distrettuale reggino, ha spiegato i movimenti economico-finanziari della società, escludendo rapporti con soggetti terzi, tranne che con l’i n g egnere Bruno Verdiglione, altro coindagato dell’i n c h i esta, fino a quando quest’u l t imo si è «messo in proprio ».

What I want to know is where are all the lawyers that we have regularly visited this forum? Many until now been very active in seeking business/$$$$ and handing out advice on how they can help. Not seen anyone offer any help or free advice so far.... may be they are all lying low. I wonder why?

W P If you have your deeds and they are registered you should be ok. As I understand it they had good title to the land so have sold it on the issue is the money used to buy the land was being laundered thus police are seizing the money and unsold land and assets they hold bought with ahem money they have obtained.

HI all

Can anyone say if they yet have had a visit by the 'Procature Judiciale' regarding the seized complexes and companies seized by the state?

There seems to be little news if any of any forward moving issues. Eg electric supply and ongoing administration of existing complexes. Also if anyone has had dealings with Consul or embassies and if any help is available there?

Thanks

Given that so many properies were involved with Operation Metroplis I am surprised that the forum is so quiet on feedback on progress to date. We all seem to be in the same or similar positions with the Government appointed administrators. It is obvious that the "general standard approach" of one answer fits all has not worked - not in our situation anyway. How about yours?. Any feedback as to how the other developments are getting along would be greatly apprecaited. Are things so quite because we have been told to keep things "confidential" or is it due to lack of progress or results. We have all got this far by sharing information and strength is in numbers so feedback on what you have been asked to do by the goverment appointed administrators would be helpful for all of us. Even a response on if you agree in the way its been handled or not would be helpful.

We were informed that our site on the East coast has been inspected and everything is in order.. cant say anything more.. was very alarming when news first broke about it all tho!! We had looked at getting solicitor to look to verify ownership etc . however that would've proven very expensive and uneccesary.

Hi Sunflower
I think the reason some people are not posting is because they have lost the will to live. In San Rocco the administrators want us to pay a second time for the installation of electricity. The builders have no money in their accounts so the don't have to pay anything for the flats they still seem to own. The administrators are consulting with the builder's son ?? We are the baddies because we don't appear to trust them. I wonder why?

Yes its true
Sunflower after losing 50k My will to live has been severely tested the Italian legal system is a farce, assets once siezed have now been released to the bandit ( sorry builder again) who promptly transferred them all to Spain !!!
I have written to the Italian ambassador in London, he ignored me , I have written to MEP and Mps all as much use as a fish on a bike
It has been a shame from the off, everything that could be done to ignore / threaten ( by the lawyer arrested ! , note to self if you are going to respond in kind to threats , best not make threats to a Mafia lawyer ! ) etc was done but I am still here like a bad smell!
It is disheartening as now I stand quite a good chance of losing my English home due to being out of work that investment would keep me and my family from going under.
Shattered dreams and broken bank balances, it was not sold that way in the Daily Express !!!! :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:
