Deniz polisinden Adalar çevresinde 'deniz taksi' denetimi

The program was established in 2012 to prevent at-risk children from being lured by the 'Ndrangheta, Italy's most powerful mafia.

Italy's Ministry of Justice has announced the expansion of a project aimed at rescuing children from Italy's largest mafia by removing them from mafia families to include organized crime groups in Sicily and Naples.

The program aims to prevent at-risk children from following their parents into a life of crime and break the cycle in which power is passed down through blood ties and family loyalty.

"This is a historic moment in the fight against the mafia" Justice Minister Carlo Nordio said on Tuesday as he presented a protocol signed by five ministers and the Italian bishops' conference of the Catholic church.

The Freedom of Choice program was founded in 2012 by juvenile judge Roberto Di Bella in the Calabria region, home to Italy's most powerful criminal organization, the 'Ndrangheta.
