ORGANISED CRIME

 Big crime, like big business, seems to be much the same world-wide. It is all about money and, ultimately, breaking people’s legs, whether in America, Russia or Japan.Throughout America the Mafia is a powerful business entity, absorbing one per cent of the GNP of the world’s largest economy. It deprives the US government of an estimated $30 billion in lost taxes. 1………………………………………. It owns sections of the trucking, garment and construction industry in New York and other cities. It also controls the trade unions whose members work in these companies.

The American Mafia are not alone: glasnost has revealed that they have their exact Russian counterparts, perhaps not quite so glitzy, but still doing well. The Moscow correspondent of The Independent newspaper describes one of them: “Known as the Uncle, he is 73. He made millions of roubles by running underground textile factories all over the Soviet Union and could have retired long ago. 2…………………………….. The Uncle was a political prisoner in one of Stalin’s labour camps in the Thirties. But he quickly realised that common criminals got better treatment, so he went over to them. He met all kinds of villains in the camps and learnt their skills. He last came out of jail in 1953. The police have not been able to nail him since.

“He has a good, three-roomed flat which is large and luxurious by Moscow standards. The outer door is reinforced with double metal plates. 3………………………………. He dislikes ostentation but he cannot resist fashion. He wears his clothes well because daily tennis has left him looking an agile and well-kept 55.

“Like the classic mafia godfather, the Uncle is a family man, loyal to his wife, who, though 25 years his junior, is no longer pretty. His daughter has a pampered life and spends hours in front of a mirror. 4……………………………………. They fear even to brush the daughter’s hand by accident. The Uncle has been known to hire hit men.”

There is one important difference between the American and Russian mobs: the Russian mafia are more interested in the consumer goods that people in the West take for granted. 5……………………………………….. One businessman had to arrange for three cars packed with colleagues to meet him and protect him when he arrived in Moscow from Paris with a small computer for his firm.

Like carrying samovars to Samarkand, such business would not interest the Japanese mafia, the yakuza. Japan has 80,000 yakuza, which, according to the Economist, is 20 times the membership of America’s mafia. The rackets are the same: drugs, extortion, protection, gambling and prostitution. But the system is different: it is Japanese, and very orderly. Crime in Japan, like everything else, is done in orderly, organised groups. 6………………………………… Instant trouble, probably fatal, would come to the intruder who tried to collect protection money from an already protected street market. No pickpocket would dare operate in a shopping centre protected by the yakuza.

The Japanese mafia are glorified as the modern equivalent of the samurai. Such glorification is found also in America and Russia. 7……………………………………
