(ANSA) – TARANTO, MAR 17 – Italian police on Wednesday
arrested six people on suspicion of carrying out a scam on
personal protective equipment (PPE) including face masks and
gowns in the southern Puglia port city of Taranto.
    Those arrested are accused of fraud because the PPE, from Turkey
and China, did not comply with safety standards, police said.
    Police seized some four million euros in proceeds from the
supplies.
    The scam operated in the first critical days of the pandemic
wave a year ago, police said.
    Police said the proceeds of the scam were used for other illicit
operations. (ANSA).
