UN HIGHLIGHTS ECONOMIC COST OF ORGANISED CRIME IN ITALY

The study by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime in Vienna out on Tuesday (25 October) estimates that organised crime in Italy – mostly illegal waste disposal, drugs and people trafficking – is worth €116 billion a year, equivalent to 7.7 percent of the country’s GDP.
The scale of the problem is far larger than in other industrialised nations – organised crime accounts for 1.3 percent of the economy in Germany, 1.2 percent in the UK and 2.3 percent in the US.
