A verdict is expected in a maxi-trial against the ‘ndrangheta crime syndicate, the Calabrian-based mob organization that has exploited tens of billions of dollars in cocaine revenues. The trial involves 300 defendants and has been held in a specially constructed bunker. Investigators said the ‘ndrangheta has established bases in much of western, northern and central Europe, Australia, North and South America and is active as well in Africa. Among the various accusations being considered by the court are drug and arms trafficking, extortion and Mafia association, a term used in Italy’s penal code for members of organized crime groups.
