Over 90,000 suspects were prosecuted for mafia-style crimes in 2019, an increase of 60.3 percent over the previous year. More than 1,400 suspects were prosecuted for providing "protection umbrellas" for such crimes.

The Supreme People's Procuratorate said it has reached an agreement with the Ministry of Public Security to intervene in all cases of mafia-style organized crime in advance, starting this year.
