New Italian Citizenship Scam: more than 1500 cases involved

May 22, 2019

Be aware of any agencies, advisors or anyone else offering to help obtain Italian citizenship easily, in a very short period of time and regardless of not being resident in Italy for the necessary minimum time required, having a criminal record or not having sufficient income.

The Public Prosecutor’s Office in Rome and the Rome Police have just shut down an organized crime group run by an official in the Ministry of the Interior, which granted Italian citizenship to people who were not entitled to it by exploiting access to the SICITT computer system used by the Department of Civil Liberties and Immigration in the Ministry of the Interior to process Italian citizenship applications.

The President of the Republic has already revoked the status of some of these new Italian citizens by stripping them of their Italian citizenship as they did not meet the legal requirements
