Bari council takes over mafia-linked beach

Risk of SCU infiltration

(ANSA) - BARI, JUL 9 - Bari city council on Thursday took over the running of a beach deemed to be at risk of mafia infiltration.
    The Puglia regional administrative court (TAR) rejected the current beach management's appeal against the move.
    The beach, at Torre Quetta, will be taken out of the hands of the Il Veliero company.
    The company will have to clear out of the beach and an associated bar.
    The Puglia mafia is the Sacra Corona Unita (United Holy Crown, SCU), which is highly active in extortion and drugs rackets.
    The SCU is Italy's fourth and smallest mafia.
    The others are Calabria's 'Ndrangheta, Sicily's Cosa Nostra, and Campania's Camorra. (ANSA).
