MAFIA SOTTO SEQUESTRO Confiscated Mafia

Ivo Saglietti | Zeitenspiegel | PROSPEKT Palermo, Italy,

November 2007 The impound of assets and companies has been lately become one of the most effective mean in the struggle against Mafia, especially in the case of the so called financial Mafia. While justice and investigations follow their course, as by law enacted the goods and business companies that have been confiscated need to be runed in order to safeguard jobs as well as capital investments: illicit trades are therefore converted into legal activities. This is the work assigned to a task force headed by Antonio Ingroia, deputy state attorney at the antiMafia County Office of Palermo since 1992. Elio Collovà is part of this team. A former chartered accountant, aged 62, he manages building enterprises, various companies and also bingo rooms: all acitivities confiscated to mafia. It’s a risky and challenging profession, that he carries out first of all with great passion: “ Sicily - he said - our beautiful land it’s ravaged by a perverse phenomenon: Mafia. It’s everyone’s responsability to fight against it with his own means”
