U.S. Imposes Sanctions on Foreign Mafia Oufits

"The US has slapped sanctions on criminal gangs engaged in organized crime across several countries as part of a major crackdown, reports said on Monday," according to RTT News.

Washington's Treasury Department imposed the sanctions to target Italian, Japanese and Mexican mafiosi, as well as sponsors of organized crime in ex-Soviet states.

Italy's feared Camorra mafia tops the list. The Treasury Department says the group is engaged in counterfeiting, drug trafficking and largescale distribution of pirated goods.

"The illegal market dealing in pirated CDs, DVDs, clothing and software is a major drain on legally produced American products," the article adds.
