(ANSA) - Bologna, October 23 - A clerk at Italy's supreme Court of Cassation has been arrested for allegedly telling a boss in the Calabrian 'Ndrangheta mafia she could help fix a trial for him.

Police said the trio told boss Nicola Femia, who is now in jail, they could influence the outcome of a trial for 400,000 euros.

No magistrates are involved, police said.
