Swiss and Italian police operation leads to 75 arrests
Years of cooperation between Swiss and Italian police culminated yesterday after 75 people were arrested in a joint raid against organized crime.
Police on both sides of the border say the raids are the result of intensive investigative work.
Assets worth EUR 169m were also seized – including weapons and cash - and another 83 suspects are being questioned.
Most of the arrests were in Italy, but Swiss officers also raided premises in cantons Aargau, Solothurn, Zug and Ticino.
