Investigators say money management 'chaotic' in PdL party


(ANSA) - Rome, September 20 - "Chaotic" money management
allowed Lazio regional officials easy access to funds from
Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party, investigators
said Thursday.
"With only one phone call" regional councillors could gain
access to party funds, say investigators who spoke one day after
Lazio Regional Councillor Franco Fiorito said he was not guilty
of embezzlement of funds from the PdL, for which Fiorito is a
former caucus leader.
Fiorito told investigators after seven hours of questioning
that although he was not guilty of embezzlement, he would "pay"
if he "made mistakes".
Italian finance police raided the councillor's offices last
week in search of evidence for probes into the local
politician's handling of party finances.
An obligation for Italian political parties to have
external auditors certify their budgets was reinstated Wednesday
into a new draft of House regulations on financial transparency
Several parties, including the main centre-left Democratic
Party and the centrist Catholic UDC, had said they would have
their party budgets scrutinized by external auditors even if
this was not obligatory.
Berlusconi's PdL party did not.
