Prosecutors say an Italian judge, politician and police official are among 10 people detained in a crackdown on the 'ndrangheta crime syndicate.
A statement from Milan prosecutors Wednesday said the investigation was conducted jointly by anti-mafia authorities in Milan and southern Reggio Calabria, home of the 'ndrangheta.
Last year, a major investigation that netted some 300 arrests showed that the 'ndrangheta wasn't just a southern association of clans, but rather a structured organization that had infiltrated itself into northern Italy's political and financial worlds.
Among those arrested Wednesday was Judge Giuseppe Giglio of Reggio Calabria, accused of corruption, revealing office secrets and allegedly helping his wife get a job. Others were charged with mafia association.
