They laundered millions of euros in Italy, the names are disclosed, here are the

The names of the persons who were investigated by SPAK after the mega-operation developed in cooperation with the Italian authorities, where it became possible to dismantle the Italian-Albanian criminal group who laundered money through a network of restaurants, have been disclosed.

SPAK announced yesterday that in cooperation with the Public Prosecutor's Office of Florence, coordinated by Eurojust, controls were carried out in four cities of our country as well as 23 controls in several cities in Italy.

During the investigations, an investment of 13.5 million euros was discovered in 31 restaurants, 2 hotels and several different businesses. Also, the prosecution body announced that the work is continuing for the collection of evidence and the criminal responsibility of the subjects under investigation.

Albanians who are under investigation are: Albiona Ziaj, 39 years old, living in Florence, Gazment Kociu, 50 years old, Redon Marku, 40 years old, Samir Houjeiri, 39 years old, Eros Gjona, 34 years old, and Orkes Kamami, 35 years old. While the Italian media report that at the head of this group was Eluert Kamami, 40 years old from Elbasan.

Full list of businesses: Osteria del Proconsolo, Il Cavallino, Gustavino Enoteca Ristorante, Braceria dei Tre Amici, Ponte Vecchio, Osteria del Fiore Ristorante Pizzeria, Bisteccheria Santa Croce, Trattoria de Pitti, Orcagna, Hosteria Antico Bottaio, Sasso di Dante, Santa Maria Novella, Casa del Vin Santo, Osteria da Caterina, Locanda Fiorentina, Trattoria Giovanni, Lo Spuntino di Pesce, Museo della Bistecca, Osteria San Fiorenzo, Borgo Saccardi, Tre Pepi, Osteria Le Pietre Bisteccheria, La Tenda Rossa (ex Rossopomodoro), Cimatori 30 Osteria, Il Caminetto, Palapa, l'hotel Ferdinando II De' Medici, il bed & breakfast Black 5 Florence.

We recall that newsbomb.al announced a few days ago that nine suspects, including the former goalkeeper of Fiorentina and Napoli, Giuseppe Taglialatela, and two Albanians, Eluert Kamami, are being investigated by Italian justice in the framework of the operation in cooperation with SPAK.

Eluert Kamami is considered the "brain" of the organization, which has acquired dozens of assets in Italian cities. In total, the investigators of the District Antimafia Directorate believe that the group has managed to buy 31 restaurants from 2012 to date, most of them in the center of Florence, two hotels, car rental businesses and beer production, for about 13 million e half a euro.

In particular, investigators have knocked on the door of Ischia Calcio and Il Cavallino restaurants in Piazza della Signoria - considered a kind of base where black money can flow, Trattoria Giovanni, La Bistecca Osteria Fiorentina, Ponte Vecchio, Bistecchia Santa Croce, Trattoria de Pitti, Osteria Lungarno and Orcagna, most of which belong to companies managed by Eluert Kamami or Bigi.

According to the indictment, Kamami created a criminal association in Florence by providing places for the collection of sums gradually diverted from restaurants, causing the money to leave the businesses illegally: simply when the money was paid for the service, the tax bill was not received .

The group is believed to have circulated around one and a half million euros in cash. The money was then used, at least in part, to pay employees without declaring them and the rest to be reinvested in buying restaurant businesses in downtown Florence. But the leaders of the organization - Kamami and Bigi according to investigators - also bought luxury personal goods such as three Ferraris, jewelry, gold bars and diamonds.

The money was also used to buy a 50 percent stake in Ischia Calcio between December 2023 and May 2024 at the official price of around 9,000 euros. However, the money that has been handed over is thousands more than that.
