Italy's answer to the Mafia: an Anti-Mafia school
I want to cry...!!!
Rome, 29 Sept. (AKI) - A university course to teach 'secret agents' how to fight the Mafia is to begin on Saturday in the southern Italian region of Calabria, a Mafia stronghold. A group of 35 agents will be trained by the University of Calabria and Cosenza on how to fight the Mafia known as 'Ndrangheta, reported the Italian weekly, Gente.
"The master's first objective is to create an 'intelligence' to contrast with organised crime," said programme director, Mario Caligiuri." In Calabria there is not even a shred of a university course that deals with the 'Ndrangheta. The Turkish language is taught, but nothing about the history of 'Ndrangheta. "The students will learn about economic intelligence and the role of new technologies in criminal activities. Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga as well as the former director of the Italian intelligence agency SISDE, Vittorio Stelo and Judge Rosario Priore will play a role in teaching the course.
The course lasts 19 days, with classes lasting 8 hours, followed by 100 hours of internship. The course costs 4,000 euros per person. Italy's four main criminal organisations are the Sicilian Mafia, the Camorra in Naples and the surrounding Campania region, the 'Ndrangheta in the southern region of Calabria, and the Sacra Corona Unita in the southern Puglia region.
My advice to the 35 agents: if they don't teach you Calabrian, you're wasting your time and money! Read my lips: "U Calabrisi first"!
See that guy in the pic above? It took the Italian authorities 20 bloody years to arrest him! His main strength? He never spoke a word of Italian!!! (Link to article-in English!)
