Rome, 29 January (AKI) - Anti-mafia police on Wednesday impounded luxury properties in the Italian capital worth 12 million euros belonging to the Reggio-Calabria based Mattiani di Palmi family.

The three properties are located in on Rome's Janiculum hill and the nearby upscale Monteverde neighbourhood, according to police.

A villa and an apartment bloc, a shop and agricultural land in the Calabrian coastal city of Palmi were also impounded in Wednesday's operation.

The operation followed probes by anti-mafia prosecutors that led to the police on 12 November of the four-star Grand Hotel del Gianicolo on the Janiculum hill, which is famed for its views of the city.

Anti-mafia police also seized two other four-star hotels in Rome and a four-star hotel in Palmi as part of the November operation.

In a separate operation on Wednesday, Italian tax police seized a tourist development worth 200 million euros in the Calabrian coastal town of Brancaleone after a probe by Reggio Calabria anti-mafia prosecutors.

Five people are under investigation in the probe, two of whom are under house arrest. The suspects face charges that include fraud and violation of building regulations in a natural beauty spot.
