Mafia arrests for Sicily renewable energy infiltration 

Credit:  ANSA | December 7, 2012 | www.lagazzettadelmezzogiorno.it ~~

Italian police on Friday arrested six people and seized 10 billion euros in assets in a probe into suspected Mafia infiltration of renewable-energy facilities in western Sicily whose proceeds are believed to have gone to fugitive Cosa Nostra head Matteo Messina Denaro. Police said Mafia members got contracts for work on wind farms and solar-energy plants near Agrigento, Palermo and Trapani.

A wave of arrests over recent years have closed the net around fugitive 50-year-old Agrigento-based boss Denaro, one of the world’s 10 most-wanted men, who took control of Cosa Nostra after the 2006 arrest of Bernardo Provenzano.
