(ANSA) - Rome, September 27 - Anti-corruption legislation
was introduced in the Italian Senate Thursday, promising up to
six years in prison for public officials convicted of using
political contributions inappropriately.
The proposal, an amendment to a larger bill aimed at
curbing corruption, calls for a jail term of two to six years
for misuse of political funds.
Introduced by former premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of
Freedom (PdL) party, the amendment and the legislation overall
come at a low point in the Italian politics.
Politicians of all stripes have been accused of various
forms of corruption.
Most recently the PdL has been embroiled in an embezzlement
scandal in the Lazio region, which surrounds Rome.
The PdL governor of the region, Renata Polverini, stepped
down after the PdL's caucus leader, Franco Fiorito, was placed
under investigation for embezzlement.
