Anti-mafia police in the northwest Italian coastal city of Genoa impounded property worth more than 20 million euros from two businessmen Monday as part of a probe targeting the Calabrian mafia.
The two businessmen were named in local reports as Roberto Piras and Riccardo Trusendi, both aged 71. Both are suspected of belonging to the Calabrian mafia or 'Ndrangheta.
The seized assets included industrial vehicles and shares in companies, as well as various items of real estate and bank accounts, several of which were located in France and Switzerland, police said.
Piras and Trusendi were arrested in June 2015 for allegedly having reused assets stemming from fraudulent bankruptcy.
The pair were also accused of money-laundering and fraudulently transferring securities and in August 2015 were banned from leaving their place of residence for two years.
