Lazio councillor says he did not embezzle party funds


(ANSA) - Rome, September 20 - Lazio regional councillor
Franco Fiorito told investigators after seven hours of
questioning Wednesday that he was not guilty of embezzlement of
party funds, but 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.
Fiorito is a former caucus leader from ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party.
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.
Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL)
party did not.
