Antimafia – The Italian Experience in Fighting Organised Crime
Full text (Adobe PDF, 1.70 MB)(only in Bulgarian)

The current reader presents the Italian policies against organized crime, which encompass a broad set of instruments tailored to counter the threat from ‘mafia’ and other organised crime threats in Italy. The key measures among these are: the confiscation, administration and utilization of confiscated criminal assets; the dissolution of local municipal councils, infiltrated by mafia; special penitentiary regimes for high-ranking leaders of organized crime.

All these policies are a direct response to the challenges imposed by the organized crime. They expand the scope and the set of instruments available to the prosecution and law-enforcement systems. This set of policies complement the traditional approaches against the mafia, which have proven to be not sufficiently effective in a situation of persisting mafia pressure upon the political and economic life in the country. In light of this, the Italian experience could be applicable to countries, such as Bulgaria, which are vulnerable to corruption and organized crime.
