German term or phrase: Kreditwuch
Einen Trost gab es für De Santis als er die Ermittlungen aufnahm: Ein gewöhnlicher Verbrecher hätte Italien verlassen können. Doch die vielfältigen Geschäftsinteressen eines bedeutenden Mafioso-die von Erpressun und Kredtwucher über Drogenhandel und Geldwäsche bis zu Provisionne bei lukrativen Regierungsverträgen reichten - zwangn ihn, vor Ort zu bleiben, damit er die Zügel in der Hand behielt. Nur auf Sizilien konnte er sich auf den Schutz des Mobs verlassen. Aber dieses weitverzwegte Netz von geschäftlichen Verbindungen war gleichzeitig seine Achillesferse.
