Fiorito appeals to top court against asset seizure


(ANSA) - Rome, October 17 - The detained former caucus leader
of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party
in the Lazio region on Wednesday appealed against the seizure of
assets in a probe into the alleged embezzlement of more than one
million euros in regional funds.
Franco Fiorito, arrested earlier this month after a scandal
that had led to the resignation of governor Renata Polverini,
appealed to Italy's highest appeals court, the Court of
Cassation, against the seizure of assets including a luxury
villa at a resort south of Rome, a jeep and 11 current accounts,
seven in Italy and four abroad.
Fiorito was arrested for allegedly pocketing over 1.3
million euros in State-subsidized party funds.
Police say he also spent party money on pleasure trips to
London, the French Riviera, Paris and the Amalfi Coast.
The disgraced ex-caucus leader was put into custody when a
judge declared he was at risk of tampering with evidence, and
prosecutors said they found traces of destroyed financial
records at his home.
