ROME «In drug trafficking, the hegemonic role of the Calabrian ‘Ndrangheta is strengthened, which continues to represent one of the most powerful and dangerous criminal organizations in the world. It is certainly the Italian mafia organization characterized by the greatest expansion, both nationally and internationallyand certainly the most influential in cocaine trafficking from South America e from the main temporary storage areas in Europe“. This is what is stated in the 2022 Annual Report of the Central Directorate for Drug Services of the Department of Public Security. The ‘Ndrangheta, “thanks to the presence of its representatives and operational brokers, established in the production sites and in the temporary storage areas of drugs, not only on the national territory, but also on a European level, continues to play a primary role in the management of worldwide drug trafficking, a real player capable of delocalizing its illegal activities worldwide – it is emphasized in the report -. The availability of huge capital of illicit origin is one strong ability to manage the various segments and traffic junctions have allowed it, over time, to consolidate an important role in international drug traffickingto which other criminal networks refer for the supply of drugs to be destined for consumer markets ».
Among other mafias, Cosa Nostra is catching up in drug trafficking, although it remains «in a position of subordination to other mafia-type organizations, from Calabria and Campania“. In this year’s report, crime also appears in the Lazio area, in the Roman context and in the other provinces: these are “well-structured associations, often on a family basis, which, for some time, have played a leading role in the management of drug trafficking. These criminal realities are flanked, in the capital, by projections of the historical Sicilian, Calabrian and Campania mafiasas well as foreign ones, attracted by the possibility of reinvesting the capital accumulated through their illicit trafficking, which operate with a “silent” strategy, with the aim of camouflaging and making it more difficult for the police forces to fight back “. in the annual report of the Central Directorate for Drug Services of the Department of Public Security.
