Cantone says changes in Camorra may signal future

Anti-corruption chief says Camorra adapts faster to change

Cantone says changes in Camorra may signal future

Naples, January 15 - The president of Italy's national anti-corruption authority Raffaele Cantone on Friday said that the Camorra may have been underestimated in its capacity to rapidly adapt to change, and that the Naples-based Mob is undergoing changes within its organisation. Cantone spoke about the mafia in response to questions on the current scandal in the town of Quarto, near Naples, where police are investigating former Quarto city councillor Giovanni De Robbio on suspicion of taking Camorra votes in exchange for a public works project. "I don't want to speak on the Quarto case, because it's not my area. As a citizen I'm concerned," Cantone said. "Maybe we've underestimated the idea that the Camorra, in this respect, is much more modern than other mafia organisations because it's very horizontal," he said. "The Camorra has the ability to take note of new things even more quickly than the (Calabrian) 'Ndrangheta and the (Sicilian) mafia". "The Camorra is changing with respect to the past and it's certainly weaker, but the faces of the stakeholders change". "It's undergoing an interesting change and since in the past the Camorra has shown itself to be a forerunner of many changes because of its lack of ideology, its flat organization, maybe these changes could be a sign regarding the future". Cantone also said that without prevention efforts, organised crime would continue to rebuild itself even despite arrests. "If there aren't the economic, political, and social conditions to corner the Camorra, it's clear that criminal organisations will re-form immediately".
