(ANSA) – NAPLES, JAN 28 – Some 120 people have been placed
under investigation in a probe into suspected members of the
Neapolitan Camorra mafia getting the government’s ‘citizenship
wage’ basic income benefit, sources said Thursday.
    Some 1.18 million euros have been seized in the probe, they
said.
    The alleged Camorristi got the benefit in Naples and many of its
hinterland towns, police said.
    The 13 individuals, all convicted of mafia association in the
last 10 years, allegedly filed false applications for the
benefit, police said.
    Rightwing politicians said the basic income was “foraging”
Italy’s mafias. (ANSA).
