Mafia in Germany: lack of information Vs privacy
A conference on the diffusion of and the fight against organised crime in Germany takes place at Alte Feuerwache in Berlin, Germany.
On Saturday, January 15 2011, a conference on the diffusion of and the fight against organised crime in Germany takes place at Alte Feuerwache in Berlin, Germany.
The conference is intended to open a discussion on two main topics: firstly, the diffusion and infiltration of organised crime syndicates in Germany. Despite the numerous intiatives, the phenomenon is still not perceived as a urgent matter and German institutions find it hard to place the fight against organised crime on top of their agenda.
Secondly, the conference is the occasion to debate about the boundary between the right to be informed and the right to privacy. Such issue gains momentum as Francesco Forgione's book "Mafia Export" is about to see light in German language, likely to have some parts blacked - similar to what happened to Petra Reski's book "A Tale of Godfathers, Pizzerias and Fake Priests".
