40 people sentenced following 'Ndrangheta op in Lombardy

Milan, December 6 - A Milan magistrate Thursday sentenced 40 people to prison sentences of between three and 20 years following a police operation against suspected infiltration by the Calabrian 'Ndrangheta mafia into public institutions and private businesses in Lombardy. Three people were acquitted. On November 8, public prosecutors requested sentences of between two and 24 years for the 40 people, who were previously arrested by police as part of a massive sting operation called Operation Infinity. Sentencing was expected before Christmas. Among those sentenced are the head of the ASL public health authorities in Pavia, a former member of the Carabinieri police, the presumed head of the 'Ndrangheta's operations in Lombardy and a local entrepreneur. As part of the sentencing, some of the accused were ordered to repay the Lombardy Region 1.2 million euros in damages. Other accused were ordered to pay the office of the prime minister, interior minister and defense minister damages each of 500,000 euros.
