Prosecutors to probe Sicily assembly budget, party documents


(ANSA) - Palermo, September 25 - Palermo prosecutors are to
examine the budget of the Sicilian regional assembly and
documents pertaining to spending by party caucuses as part of a
probe opened on Tuesday.
The investigation comes in the wake of funding scandals
involving parties from both sides of the political fence in
Milan, Rome and other cities.
On Tuesday youth coordinator for the Great South party
Massimo Cusimano called on the speaker of the regional assembly
Francesco Cascio to ''disclose the list of expenses made using
reserved funds at his disposal because the assembly president
has the moral obligation, even before the political obligation,
to say how he spends citizens' money''.
Cascio allegedly spent his entire budget allocation of
380,000 euros for 2010 and had the same amount available to him
the following year.
In the 2012 budget he was allocated 342,000 euros.
