Investigation linked to alleged mafia infiltration into ultras’ ticket touting

Twelve leaders of hardcore Juventus “ultra” football fan groups have been arrested on suspicion of criminal association, money-laundering, violence and aggravated extortion in connection with ticket sales.

The suspects allegedly threatened to sing racist chants during matches if the Italian Serie A champions’ ticketing officials did not hand over blocks of reduced-price tickets that the ultras could then sell on to fans. The threats came after Juventus stopped distributing blocks of tickets for sale in 2017. Clubs are fined and can have points deducted over racist chanting.

Eighty-two migrants have disembarked in Italy, marking a break from the era of hardline immigration measures pushed by former interior minister, Matteo Salvini.

On Saturday night, the migrants were transferred from the Norwegian-flagged rescue boat Ocean Viking, operated by the French charities SOS Méditerranée and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), to a coastguard vessel before being taken ashore on the Sicilian island of Lampedusa.

Pro-European government seeks to draw line under crisis sparked by far-right leader

A career civil servant and specialist in migration policy has succeeded the far-right leader Matteo Salvini as Italy’s interior minister in a new left-leaning pro-European coalition government aimed at drawing a line under a crisis sparked by Salvini’s populist League party.

Luciana Lamorgese, a 38-year veteran of the interior ministry, has in recent years been in charge of planning refugee and migrant reception centres in northern Italy and is known for promoting integration events and policies. She was also the first female security chief, or prefect, of Milan.
