(ODM) in Lugano today, and published shocking evidence that his company is forming a new partnership with the organized crime to implement plans for the illegal burial of radioactive and hazardous waste under the sea. For several years now ODM is offering burial of radioactive and hazardous waste in the sea, a practice which is clearly prohibited by international conventions.ODM’s financial backbone is in Switzerland, while Italy is its main field of operation. More than 40 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and eastern Europe are proposed dumping sites at ODM. Greenpeace activists unfurled banners reading: “Stop Waste Trade Mafia” in German, English, French and Italian at the ODM headquarters. “We discovered that ODM is only the most recent criminal enterprise of a large waste-mafia network specialized in illegal waste management activities” says Stefan Weber of Greenpeace Switzerland. Greenpeace started a courtcase against ODM and gave seized documents out of ODM’s office as evidence to the Swiss police.
