Rackets in the province of Caserta are reinforced by murder. In fact, killings sometimes prompt offers of payment from the victims, as happened this summer after the murder of Raffaele Granata, who ran a bathing centre, La Fiorente at Castel Volturno. On 11 July, Granata was killed with the same Beretta 9 x 21mm pistol that had slain businessman Michele Orsi a month earlier and a month later would kill two Albanian immigrants.

See that? Albanians kill Italians in their own country. Thats embarassing, the Albanian crime organizations pushed the Ndrangheta out of the prostitution business. The only gang to have the balls to do that in Italy. They dont pay a tax or anything.
ahahahahahaha albanian never killed italian mobsters instead i proofed italians kill albanians when they want they are just chickenthieves to the mafia please be serious now north italy is a joke moron even a 8 years old southern could be a mini-mafia boss there LOOOOOL myself could be a boss it's enough ny southern accent :D :D :D
Italy's Prime Minister, Massimo D'Alema held crisis talks with police and local officials in Milan yesterday to try to restore order to a city that has seen nine murders so far this year.


ahahahahahahahaha the nine murders in 14 days were not done by albanians period i just exlpain that's wrong i'm italian and i know better than you italian facts moron that was a mix of crimes not related each other done by different people only 1 of them was committed by albanians
The government has deployed an extra 800 police and 90 patrol cars to Milan as a stopgap measure to ease the "crime emergency".
ahahahahahaha crime emergency LOOOOL in north italy it's enough a single murder to say criminal emergency the goverment had to send ARMY to fight the mafia in south italy moron nobody cares of chickenthieves gangs in milan

Diego Masi, an Interior Ministry under-secretary, blamed the Albanian mafia, which has entered the city on a tide of illegal immigrants. An official report puts the Albanians top among foreign crime organizations. It says they concentrate on drugs and prostitution. Their lack of Western moral values allows them to settle scores with appalling coldness, often murdering people in crowded streets and bars.


there are albanian gangs in north italy and what moron? LOOOOOOOOL everybody are in north italy romanians, nigerians, morocans not just albanians i post a map of milan and the albanians are the same influence of gypsy roma and less than africans and romanians surpassed them today LOOOOOOOOL but everybody pays the ndrangheta to operate there that litterally owns milan and north italy

In response to Bank of Italy Governor Antonio Fazio's plea that "immigration not to be evaluated negatively" because Italy may need immigrant workers, thousands of supporters of the separatist Northern League party marched through Milan in mid-January to protest the crime they blame on Albanian immigrants.
ahahahahahaha separatist are again everybody southern italians and foreign because they are racist today the romanians are the most hated among foreign nobody cares of albanians anymore LOOOOOL

Are you serious? I just gave you proof of the Albanian mafia killing nine people in nine days in Milan. Its right there in front of you. The government said it, the people said it. They protested against Albanians because of it. Italy declared a crime crisis. Your a moron. You cant even face the facts when there right in front of you. Your in denial.

The Albanians killed nine Italians in nine days to push them out of prostitution in Milan. Albanians dont care about the Ndrangheta, Camorra or La Cosa Nostra. To them, you guys are nothing. Just a target for their guns.
yeah i'm serious moron if you think albanian can match ndrangheta in milan you are mental disturbed LOOOOOOOOOOOL italy declared crisis? ahahahahahahaha yeah albanians don't care of mafia but the mafia kill them like dogs if it wants :D :D :D no albaniaunited the albaniass mob never killed 9 people in 9 days i'm sorry for you but... believe what you want LOOOOOL

The articles I have you were from BBC and an Italian website as well as from a Yugoslavian website. The Albanian mafia slaughtered nine Italians in nine days to control prostitution. The government had to come to the streets of Milan for a demonstration. They deployed hundreds of extra police on the streets.
ahahahahaha stop saying BS moron the articles don't say it it says there were 9 murders in 14 days in milan not that they are committed by albanians LOOOOOOOOOOOL you change the facts to hype albanians you're a clown :D :D :D i'm italian and you can't BS me about italian facts LOOOOOOL
I never said they dominate South Italy. I said they operate there. The Albanians are involved in cocaine import from the Reggio Calabria port as well. They frequently vist Africo, Pallati and other Calabrian and Sicilian mafia towns.
ahahahaha no they don't operate there moron and they are not involved in cocaine import LOOOOOOOL you're right there are links between italian mafia and albanian gangs but the italian mafia operates in albania more than albanians in italy because the italians use albania as logistic area

According to the report, that is being published by the Athens newspaper "TA NEA", it is the first time that the Italian Mafia has turned its attention toward Greece after appearing in Albania, Montenegro and FYROM.

None of those sources above specify what ethnic group those who were murdered belong to. The most telling statement is -

In the first month of 1999, there have been nine killings in Milan attributed to gangs of immigrants, many of them Albanians. The gangs are reported to be fighting for control of prostitution and drug trafficking.

It appears that the 9 murders happened in one month, and were likely between immigrant groups, rather than Albanians "killing 9 Italians" as JohnnyRed/AlbaniaUnited/TheEastSide has been claiming.
