The arrests were made by the Provincial Command of the Financial Police, who seized 80,000 euros. The investigation was initiated by a complaint from the Port Authority of Western Sicily, regarding delays in the execution of the public contract. It was discovered that the company officials demanded extra payments from subcontractors, threatening to halt their activities if they refused. The investigation also revealed that the officials forced subcontractors to use lower quality materials and overcharge for their services.
