Three men, including one with ties to a neo-fascist political organization in Italy, have been seized by a police raid in northern Italy after a large cache of automatic firearms, Nazi-themed material, and a three-meter missile was discovered in a “Neo-Nazi” camp.
The neo-fascist Forza Nuova party’s senate candidate in 2001, Fabio Del Bergiolo, was unsuccessful, according to a statement released by the Turin police on Monday.
Nine assault weapons, nearly 30 hunting rifles, pistols, and bayonets, as well as ammo and antique Nazi plaques with swastikas, were found in his Gallarate home by authorities.
Most likely, all three were involved in the sale of these weapons in some capacity. Terrorism and organized crime are the main focus of the Digos police force. It was in charge of the operation from Turin, with the help of police from Forli, Milan, Novara, and Varese as backup and support.
The 245-kilogram (540-pound) Mantra Super 530 F missile was recovered by police throughout the course of the operation, according to authorities. They also discovered automatic assault guns of the “latest generation,” according to the report.
