I knew, even if they have a lot of production, there's NO WAY Sicily makes the best marijuana or concentrates in Europe. They control the LOCAL market.....

Holland, still I believe has the BEST stuff, and all the hash is still the preferred concentrate, which is still dominated by Gangs from Naples I believe.....

True, but if the sicilians got the expertise and seeds from Holland they can produce high quality themselves.

Camorra doesn't dominate the Dutch hashish market as far as I know.

Moroccans living in the Netherlands definitely bring in a ton of hashish because they can directly source it from their native area in the Riff. The stuff is solid quality.

The, in my opinion, best hashish in the Netherlands is still stuff that's trafficked by the Dutch networks (often 'Kampers' from Brabant and South Holland). They mostly have direct lines to Pakistan and Lebanon to source the stuff.

Albanians move a shitload of hashish around Europe, including the Netherlands, as well. They seem to take a quantity over quality approach, but it's solid enough.

The established Italian community in the Netherlands has never been publicly associated with Italian organized crime, but from an internal report it can be concluded that between 1989 and 1990 about 30 criminal investigations were conducted in various places in the country into the big three mafia groups. But the first reports in the 70s did not relate to the Italian mafias but to members of the American Genovese family, who belonged to Meyer Lansky.
There is no doubt that the well-known Mafia organizations are involved in criminal activities (or have them carried out) on Dutch territory. Clans of cosa nostra have imported drugs directly and indirectly - via Belgium and Germany - from the Netherlands. Contact persons in both The Hague and Amsterdam were called in for this. South American cocane importers maintain close contacts with representatives, brokers, of one or more camorra clans in Amsterdam, via a few Italian restaurants (in the city and its surroundings).
Italian anti-mafia investigations have shown how the 'ndrangheta has used the Netherlands for its cocaine trafficking since the 1980s.

They definitely set up shop in the Netherlands. I don't think they have much interest in any kind of local "control" in the Netherlands though.

Belgium seems to have a bit more noticeable Italian OC activity. I'd say Belgian Limburg is one of the most important bases abroad for the Ndrangheta. Liege and other parts of Wallonia on the other hand are more Sicilian. They're all over though; a few years ago a Camorra member was arrested in Antwerp for raids on a few jewel shops throughout Belgium.

In 2011 Belgian intel still named Italian OC the most prevalent kind of "foreign" OC with at least 24 active criminal networks connected to the Cosa Nostra, Ndrangheta and Camorra. Italian OC was followed by Dutch, Albanian, Moroccan, Turkish (including Turkish-Assyrian and Turkish-Kurdish) and to a lesser extent "Russian" (including Russian and Georgian Jewish, Chechen, Georgian, Armenian, Azeri, Georgian Kurdish), Israeli, Chinese, Greek and Lebanese networks.

Major hit !!

Antonio Di Liberto is a cousin of Filippo Bisconti, the boss of Belmonte Mezzagno who has repented and who in recent months has filled out reports by reconstructing the Cosa Nostra business not only in the area between Misilmeri and Belmonte Mezzagno but above all in Palermo.

Bisconti was arrested along with Settimo Mineo as they tried to rebuild the Cupola and restore order among the families.

Italian anti-mafia champion sentenced for corruption

Sicilian member of Italy’s employers’ organization found guilty of links to the mob.

A former anti-mafia champion, Antonello Montante, was sentenced to 14 years in jail on Friday for a string of offences including corruption, according to Italian media reports.

Montante, who has always denied the charges against him, was the national spokesman on legal issues for Italy's employers’ organization, Confindustria, as well as the head of its Sicilian branch.

The sentence was tougher than expected as the prosecution had asked for 10 years. It could have been higher still; the jail time was cut by a third because of the type of trial Montante agreed to. Without that, he would have been jailed for 21 years: “Almost like a murder,” complained Giuseppe Panepinto, one of his lawyers, who said an appeal would be launched.

A probe was launched in 2015 after a string of mafia turncoats told prosecutors that, despite his attacks on organized crime, Montante was actually involved with Sicilian mob bosses — in particular Vincenzo Arnone and his father Paolino, who were best men at Montante's wedding in December 1980.

As part of the investigation, prosecutors uncovered what they dubbed "the Montante system" — a complex web of informants whose job it was to provide the former Confindustria man with information on his rivals and on the probe into his alleged mob links.

Prosecutors said they found a haul of documents in January 2016 in a room in Montante's villa at Serradifalco, near Caltanissetta in central Sicily. There were dossiers on politicians, prosecutors, investigators and others full of details collected by his informants. The suspicion is that the dossiers were to be used for blackmail, wrote the daily La Stampa.

The sentence “shows the gravity of the so-called Montante system,” said Nicola Morra, chairman of the Italian parliament's anti-mafia commission. However, Montante's lawyer Panepinto said his client had been set up by the mafia.

It's not the first time an anti-corruption figure has been arrested for such offences. In 2015 Roberto Helg, then head of Palermo’s chamber of commerce and a leading figure in the fight against corruption, was arrested after pocketing €100,000 extorted from a local businessman, although in that case the mafia was not involved.

Prosecutors have long denounced attempts by the mafia to infiltrate anti-corruption efforts in a bid to delegitimize them.

What would you say are the strongest Sicilian clans these days?

Just by sheer number, it seems like the most clans are situated in Palermo and its province followed by the province of Agrigento.

Clans from Palermo followed by Trapani not Agrigento. Trapani is Sicilian mafia powerhouse for last 40 years.

In Sicily you have families that have much bigger power than mafia clans. For example you have Guttadauro's,they are members of multiple clans from all over Sicily,they are extremely rich and powerful. Giuseppe 'The Doctor' Guttadauro who is prime of Palermo hospital , is boss of Roccella family,probably member of freemasonry too,he is close to powerful politicians.Carlo Guttadauro capodecina of Bagheria family and Filippo Guttadauro powerful member of Castelvetrano family.

Then you have D'Ali's.(Matteo Messina Denaro's father started as armed guard for them) Antonio D'Alì Sr. was CEO of Banco Sicula,one of biggest private banks in Sicily,he was also member of P2. His son Antonio D'Alì jr. is a senator for Silvio Berlusconi's party Forza Italia, he was also under-secretary at the Ministry of the Interior, the institution responsible for fighting organised crime. Giacomo D’Alì is a counsellor of the Banca Commerciale Italiana in Milan. Antonio D'Alì jr. was photographed meeting with powerful Sicilian mafia members last year.

Thanks for the info. It does seem like Agrigento has a lot of mandamenti though; 10 as opposed to 4 in Trapani.

They have 7 mandamenti: Agrigento, Palma di Montechiaro, Burgio, Canicattì, Santa Margherita Belice, Cianciana and Santa Elisabetta.
Of course there are also stiddari operating there.

Stiddari and Cosa Nostra are working together in these past years.
