It circulated rapidly, both in Albania and in Italy, the news this morning regarding the seizure of assets for 750.000 euro and the arrest of an Italian citizen residing in Durazzo suspected of money laundering.
In the afternoon, the Top Channel television station revealed further details on the case: the assets seized belonged to Ferdinando Muollo, sentenced in Italy to 12 years and 6 months of imprisonment, because he was considered the instigator of Salvatore Ridosso's crime in 2002 for past business bad among families.
The murder unleashed the Ridosso family's blood revenge, which paid 100.000 euro to order the murder of Luigi Muollo, brother of Ferdinando. The two clans were in conflict for some poker rooms and for a company that dealt with medical supplies.
Just to escape the conflict, Muollo had moved to Durres. The sentence against him was confirmed last week by the Cassation.
The investigation, which began after the Italian side reported, was closely coordinated by the Naples and Durres prosecutors and led to the seizure of 5 apartments and 13 garages in Durres, as well as a vehicle with 40.000 value euro and a bank account from 10.000 euro.
The Naples prosecutor's office, in response, confirmed that the citizen Ferdinando Muollo, 56enne, was sentenced by the Italian justice authorities as part of the Camorra gangs operating in the Naples area. The Italian citizen was in possession of a residence permit in Albania and exercised some commercial activities.
In 2012, in fact, he registered a company, in Tirana, aimed at producing and marketing medicines and dental equipment and of which he held the 50% of the shares. Three years later, instead he registered a company - of which he held the 45% of the shares - delegated to the production and trade of medical-surgical equipment for the washing and disinfestation of premises. The list of activities is closed by the dental laboratory opened in 2015 and of which it held the 30% of the shares.
