It is suggested that his reputation, and the alleged presence of other clan members working in various roles, allowed the Camorra in effect to take over the running of a medical institution. The clan allegedly used the hospital as its social headquarters - a safe haven - and a meeting place for Camorra summits, and as a location for the exchange of extortion money and loan repayments.
It is even said to have controlled the system of medical visits and operations, gaining favours from doctors including signing false medical certificates and looking after injured clan members and special access to medical treatment bypassing the normal bureaucratic channels and waiting lists. Moreover, according to the DDA, the private company that managed the ambulances was allegedly close to the clan , apparently enabling it to manage comings and goings to the hospital as well as make a healthy profit. It was also said to be able to influence decisions involving the distribution of public contracts for hospital services, in particular, prosecutors allege, the cleaning contract which their company won with its members as employees, or the hospital canteen being run by a Camorra company.
If proved in court, these allegations represent the true colonisation of a public space by a traditional mafia — a shocking example of how the Camorra continues to infiltrate all aspects of life in the city.
