Using italian anti mafia model, a global structure of prosecutors is the answer to defeat transnational organized crime.

Vice Attorney General in Palermo, Italy, Mr. Antonio Ingroia

Rome, Italy .- The struggle against transnational organized crime requires a global prosecutor, said the assistant prosecutor of Palermo, Antonio Ingroia. The italian prosecutor assured  that the mafia is now global , has laundered its dirty money and has increased its presence in the legal economy.

“In order to defeat an increasingly global mafia, the countries must oppose a structure that enhances legal collaboration and assistance. This new structure must be able to use the different national legislative experiences and develop a common intervention strategy based on the model of the Italian anti-Mafia prosecutor,” he said.

By participating in a conference on the subject in Palermo, Ingroia said that the mafia spends most of its illicit resources investing in shares and financial stocks.

He stressed that organized crime has not only admitted to trading on the stock market, but has sunk deep roots throughout the world.

“We need a global instrument to fight the transnational mafia, and a global prosecutor office  is the answer” he said.

Regarding the figures of the Italian government, which claims to have arrested six thousand 754 mobsters, including 28 of the 30 considered most dangerous, Ingroia warned that it is wrong to think that organized crime is on its knees.

“The Mafia today is mostly financial mafia, which has increased its global presence in the formal/legal economy,” he said.

He stressed that the mafia`s military phase is over and that, in contrast,  the mafia now seek to be accepted in the circles of economy and politics.

“This is an increasingly global mafia, while the majority of Italians believe that we are facing a mob almost on their knees, because there is a widespread propaganda that tends to remove the problem by saying that the mafia has been almost defeated” he said.
