The anti-racketeering movement led by Tano Grasso celebrates twenty years of fighting against extortion.
From the first trial against racketeering in 1991-1992 (Court of Patti, Messina) to the trial against the extortionists of Herculaneum in 2011-2012 (Court of Naples).
From the first anti-racketeering association of Capo d’Orlando to the sixty associations present today in Italy: a well-established system in the collective fight against mafia blackmail.
But why does the businessman speak out against extortion, breaks his silence, thus carrying out an ‘irreversible act’? If the entrepreneur’s action is courageous, the strategy of the associations belonging to the Federation of Italian Anti-Racketeering Associations (F.A.I.) is decisive: the collective structure ‘shatters the risk’, allows the “depersonalization of an individual’s exposure“.
If he is perceived as a winner, further denunciations will follow.
