200+ Mafia Members Taken Down in German Operation, Global Significance, Tectonic Shift

Editor: We ran into this headline about the takedown of over 200 Italian mafia members from a recent video by white hat military affiliate and former SAS commander Riccardo Bosi (link), put up on Bitchute a week ago. The full video, posted below, is over 2 hours but he mentions this information at around the 7th minute.

The full story we are putting out below about this is from May of this year when arrests were being reported, although arrests had already been made much earlier (see the following below). Western MSM in English were picking up this story of the court’s VERDICTS on November 20, 2023. This recent BBC report from Nov. 20 indicates that the trial had gone on for around three years (since January 2021) and was the largest of its kind since the 1980s. Many arrests took place in December 2019, apparently.

Bosi is absolutely right, we believe: if we don’t see this kind of judicial event against some of the worst kind of criminality as a success, we are not paying attention. He refers to this mass arrest as a ‘tectonic shift’ and we are inclined to agree.

January 2021, around the time the trials were getting underway, was a time when there were many reported blackouts around the world, such as at the Vatican, Pakistan, Ireland, Paris, either Iran or Iraq, etc. In January, many countries were under their second ‘pandemic’ lockdown. We also saw other events such as the deaths of prominent entrepreneurs, bankers and Catholic archbishops, and the recorded gunfire heard in the Vatican, with daytime video footage showing many Mercedes vans travelling through Rome. The report below indicates that travel restrictions were successful in forcing these mafia members to use their mobile phones, which could be intercepted. Maybe we are beginning to see the white hat logic behind the apparently tyrannical methods employed by our governments. Have the white hats been in charge all along?

Bosi’s address was made to an Australian public on Nov. 26, 2023. We highly recommend watching it. Here is the full video:

On the subject of Bosi, we couldn’t resist posting this:


The ‘Ndrangheta mafia, while not the most powerful, comprise 150 clans with global reach in many global ‘markets,’ including drugs. More information can be found here via the BBC from Nov. 20, 2023 —

Italy mafia trial: ‘Ndrangheta bosses get lengthy jail terms

Of note:

Prosecutors had sought guilty verdicts for 322 defendants, charged with crimes including drug and weapons trafficking, extortion and mafia association — which is specifically designated in Italy’s penal code.

“The relevance (of this trial) is enormous,” Italian lawmaker and former anti-mafia chief prosecutor  Federico Cafiero De Raho, told The Associated Press in an interview.

“First of all, because every trial against the ‘Ndrangheta gives a very significant message to the territory, which is not only the Calabrian one, but the national territory.”

“But it has repercussions also at a European and world level, because the ‘ndrangheta is one of the strongest organizations in the world, able to manage the international traffic of narcotics, as well as many other activities,” Cafiero De Raho said.

The trial had to take place in a specially constructed high-security bunker in Lamezia Terme in southern Italy.

The police of several European countries, Brazil and Panama, on Wednesday morning carried out an operation to arrest members of the Italian mafia clan ‘Ndrangheta.

The international operation Eureka was led by Germany, and was preceded by a four-year investigation conducted in strict secrecy.

During the operation, around two hundred people suspected of cocaine smuggling, money laundering and tax crimes were arrested.

Most of them were arrested in the Italian city of San Luca, where the headquarters of part of this clan is located.

According to some information, 108 people have been arrested, and another 15 are in Genoa, in northwestern Italy.

Dozens of people were detained in western Germany, where the Ndrangheta, according to police, has a large money-laundering center.

The ‘Ndrangheta is a large Italian organized crime group whose center is located in the province of Calabria. (ER: on the toe of Italy’s boot)

It is not as well known as the Sicilian Cosa Nostra or the Neapolitan Camorra, but it is considered one of the most powerful criminal organizations in the world.

They are present in a large part of Europe, and have also spread to the United States of America, Mexico and Latin America.

On Wednesday morning (ER: May 3, 2023), police officers in different countries made synchronized raids on the homes and offices of the suspects.

How the pandemic accelerated the exposure of the mafia

In Germany alone, about a thousand policemen and intelligence agents took part in the action.


From October 2019 to January 2022, the Ndrangheta clan distributed about 25 tons of cocaine from Latin America to Europe, according to the police of the German state of Bavaria, who worked closely with colleagues from Italy and Belgium.

Most of the drugs were brought to Belgium and the Netherlands by cargo ships.

It was also established that part of the cocaine was then sent to Australia.

The investigation also showed that during the same period, the mafia organization laundered more than 22 million dollars in Europe, mainly through chains of pizzerias, cafes and ice cream shops, most of which were located in the western parts of Germany.

Police became suspicious when a group of Italian nationals came to the attention of Bavarian police in July 2020.

A secret investigation found that they were connected to cocaine smuggling in Germany and involved in illegal financial transactions.

A similar scheme was discovered in Belgium, and the police managed to discover the connection of these people with the Calabrian ‘Ndrangeta.

The main role in uncovering the mafia was played by the fact that they managed to penetrate the mobile phone communication of criminals, equipped with special crypto protection, according to the police.

The ‘Ndrangheta is known for the fact that its members have never used mobile communication to solve business problems.

They preferred to travel hundreds of kilometers to meet each other in person.

However, the corona virus pandemic forced them to resort to mobile phones, which significantly accelerated their capture.
