The Calabria mafia has contacts all over Europe and the world. The key to its success is the very strong family bond in which betrayal is very rare.

Belgium is an important transit country for the Italian mafia. An Italian parliamentary committee said this in a report about the 'Ndrangheta, the mafia in Calabria , in the South of Italy.

According to the report, the 'Ndrangheta is the most powerful mafia group in Italy at the moment.

The Calabria mafia has contacts all over Europe and the world. The key to its success is the very strong family bond in which betrayal is very rare.

Apart from using Belgium as a transit country for drugs the 'Ndrangheta also launders money here, mostly through investments in real estate.

Our country, together with the Netherlands and Germany, is also an important place of refuge for the Italian Mafioso's to hide out.

In 2005 and 2005 two fugitives, key members of the Calabria mafia, were arrested in Belgium.
