Prosecutors seek 20-month sentence for Puglia governor


Bari, October 25 - Prosecutors in southern Italy on
Thursday said Puglia Governor Nichi Vendola should spend 20
months in prison for alleged corruption and abuse of office.
Vendola, leader of the leftwing Left Ecology Freedom (SEL)
party, is suspected of unlawfully appointing a local chief of
surgeons, Paolo Sardelli, at Bari's San Paolo hospital in 2010.
Vendola has denied any wrongdoing.
Prosecutors requested the same setence for Lea Cosentino,
the former head of the health board in Bari whom Vendola fired
in 2010 after she was placed under house arrest during a graft
Vendola has said the case against him is based solely on
testimony from Cosentino.
"She is accusing me due to her strong resentment," he says.
