Investigations made it possible to acquire serious clues against two entrepreneurs operating in the construction and road works sector, which, aware of the risk of incurring financial prevention measures, have set up companies by fictitiously registering them to one of their collaborators, while maintaining de facto control.

The investigative activity outlined a serious circumstantial framework, against the entrepreneurs, “de facto” owners of the contractor of the works, who due to financial problems, with the complicity of the construction manager and an engineer from Anas , they would have used a type of mortar of poor quality, but cheaper than the one initially used. Furthermore, it emerged that the two entrepreneurs belong to criminal associations that had already emerged as part of the «Low Profile» operation, and aimed at the commission of tax crimes, money laundering, self-laundering, reuse and fraudulent transfer of values. Among the suspects reached by the precautionary measure in prison there is also an inspector of the Guardia di Finanza, already involved in the “Rinascita-Scott” operation, now under investigation for corruption in judicial acts and disclosure of official secrecy for acts committed while on duty to the Dda of Catanzaro. The soldier, in carrying out delegated investigations on the two entrepreneurs, in exchange for various kinds of benefits, did his best to mitigate the position of the two, constantly informing them of the development of the procedure against them.

The investigating judge also ordered the preventive seizure of three construction companies and over 200 thousand euros as a profit from the alleged crimes.
