Direzione Investigativa Antimafia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Direzione Investigativa Antimafia (English: Anti-Mafia Investigation Directorate", also known as DIA) is the Italian multi-force agency dedicated to solving and preventing mafia-related crimes.

The DIA was established with the decree-law of October 29, 1991, no. 345,[1] following the intensification of the fight against the Sicilian Mafia in Italy, just before the killing of magistrate Giovanni Falcone, the main inspiration and promoter, and was created with the urgent decree during the Andreotti VII government and Italian Minister of Justice Claudio Martelli.
