Catherine Deneuve's Grandson Has Been Arrested And Is Suspected Of Links To The Italian Mafia
The grandson of Catherine Deneuve and her first husband, director Roger Vadim, was arrested in France on suspicion of links to the Italian mafia. He has been charged for his part in counterfeiting money.
As part of Europol's special operation "Nero," in addition to Vadim, the police detained another 43 people. They were seized counterfeit banknotes worth 9.9 million euros, 8.3 million euros in genuine bills and valuables worth about 10 million euros. The operation is aimed at suppressing the activities of the Camorra, a Neapolitan criminal structure. Previously, the clan was associated with the drug trade, but now, they have expanded the scope of activities and engaged in the production of counterfeit banknotes with a face value of 50 euros.
Vadim is currently under arrest in Paris and faces extradition to Italy. Although little is known about the life of the heir to the actress, sources say, he was always a favorite of his famous grandmother and often accompanied her to social events.
