Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The gang de la Brise de Mer is one of the most powerful Corsican criminal organizations. Based in the Northern Corsica, the gang controls various activities (racketeering, slots machines traffic, laundering, night clubs, gambling clubs, casinos, etc.) in Corsica, but also in the South of France, in Paris, in Occidental African countries (Gabon, Mali, Cameroon, etc.), and in Latin American countries. The gang's moniker came from a Bastia cafe called "La Brise de Mer" (the sea breeze) where they held meetings throughout the 1970s. The gang is well-known for its spectacular, violent armed robberies in Corsica, France and the rest of Europe. The robbery of the UBS bank in Geneva, Switzerland in 1990; the attack of a Securipost's trunk in 1991 and the robbery of Air France Mercure in 1992 are probably the most important robberies of the gang. The "Brise de Mer" is also suspected of involvement in the murders in 2001 of members of Armata Corsa, a separatist Corsican armed group.show more
