Two PdL secretaries under investigation in Fiorito probes


(ANSA) - Rome, September 28 - Two secretaries from
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL)
party are being probed in a regional corruption scandal that
erupted earlier this month.
Bruno Galassi and Pierluigi Boschi were both PdL
secretaries for former regional chief Franco Fiorito, who was
placed under investigation for suspected embezzlement of party
funds after his offices were searched by police mid-September.
Boschi is also Fiorito's cousin, investigators said.
Investigators say that Boschi and Galassi were authorized
access to the party's Unicredit bank account.
The men reportedly wrote and cashed two checks in their
own names for 4,600 euros each.
Bank transfers worth over 10,000 euros to Fiorito's
godmother and girlfriend for 'services rendered' are also being
The possibility that the scandal engulfing Berlusconi's
centre-right party is placing it at risk of imploding has been
denied by the party's founder.
"No, we are not in disarray," Berlusconi told journalists
on Tuesday.
