Traffickers may pay some NGOs, posits Italian prosecutor

ANSA: Catania prosecutor Carmelo Zuccaro said Thursday on state broadcaster RaiTre that “in my opinion, some NGOs could be financed by traffickers and I know of contact (between them). This trafficking is currently bringing in as much money as the drug trade“. He was speaking on the issue of an inquiry opened recently by his office. “Perhaps it could be even more disturbing,” he added, positing that some NGOs might “have different ends, such as destabilizing the Italian economy in order to benefit from it“.
