Police make Liguria arrests in mafia-related investigation

Genoa, December 3 - Police on Monday were carrying out various arrests, including of a suspected 'Ndrangheta crime boss, in towns in Italy's northwestern Liguria region, as part of an investigation into presumed corruption of public officials. As part of the roundup underway, two people in the southern city of Reggio Calabria were also arrested and the homes of three former public officials in towns on the Ligurian coast were searched. Police searched the homes of former local officials, including that of the former mayor of Ventimiglia, not far from Italy's Mediterranean border with France. The three are being investigated for supposed ties to the Calabrian 'Ndrangheta crime syndicate. Giuseppe Marciano, a presumed 'Ndrangheta crime syndicate boss, along with his son Vincenzo and a nephew were among those arrested. The local governments of the towns of Ventimiglia and Bordighera were dissolved in February 2012 and March 2011 respectively following investigations into presumed mafia infiltration.
