Ex-Berlusconi minister faces 16 months for rigging tenders


(ANSA) - Bari, October 5 - Prosecutors on Friday asked a
court to convict ex-regional affairs minister Raffaele Fitto and
sentence him to 16 months in prison for allegedly conspiring to
rig tenders worth over 15 million euros.
Investigators say Fitto, who was the governor of Puglia at
the time of the accusations, rigged public contracts in favor of
a company called Cedis, which ran supermarkets in the region.
A decision is scheduled for October 22.
A raft of regional corruption cases involving various
parties have recently come to a head in Italy, culminating in
the arrest of former Lazio caucus leader Franco Fiorito from
former premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL)
Fitto served as regional affairs minister under Berlusconi
from May 2008 to November 2011.
