(ANSA) – ROME, NOV 29 – A trade unionist constituted the
“armed wing” of an ‘Ndrangheta clan in Potenza, police said
after smashing the Calabrian mafia unit on Monday.

one of 37 people arrested on suspicion of drug trafficking and
other mafia crimes Monday.
The man, Rocco Della Luna, coerced the region’s biggest hospital
into taking on a Mob-linked cleaning firm, police said.
Interior Minister Luciana Lamorgese hailed the “vast and
articulated operation that dealt a hard blow to the clan” in
The clan, led by Renato Martorano and Dorino Stefanutti, two of
those arrested, had become a leading player among mafia clans in
Lucania, Sicily and Puglia, police said. (ANSA).
