Alfano calls for more work to reduce thefts, fraud of oldsters

Interior minister hails progress against mafia, terrorists

Rome, December 31 - Italian Interior Minister Angelino Alfano praised the forces of law and order for its work against organised crime and preventing terrorism Thursday but urged police to curb burglaries and fraudsters bilking old folk. "The results we have achieved in the prevention of international terrorism are obviously not the only ones," he said in a year end message to the forces of law and order and the fire service. "One only has to think of the extraordinary work that we have done in terms of fighting organised crime - assets seized, criminals on the run arrested, presumed or believed Mafiosi arrested, meaning Mafiosi from all the mafias, fugitives who were caught because of a blitz by some of our men and women in uniform, that is to say you". "Or public order - we have dealt with 10,000 demonstrations and all this concluded with a positive outcome for a great country that must always be clear that there is a point of equilibrium between freedom to demonstrate and think and the freedom of every citizen to enjoy his city". Alfano also praised the police for their work against "the terrible, very ugly phenomenon of gender violence, of violence to women," road safety, and for special events such as the Expo Milan and the Jubilee. Firefighters also were praised for making 700,000 interventions in 2015, an average of 2,000 a day while crime in general fell by 10% in Italy, following a similar fall in crime the previous year. "Now we must concentrate more on thefts, on fraud of old people, we cannot allow that all that continues to happen on this scale even if those also have fallen."
