(ANSA) – Rome, October 31 – Italian Senator Luigi Lusi is
set to stand trial for having allegedly embezzled 22 million
euros of funds from the coffers of the now-defunct centre-left
Margherita party, whose finances he managed before being
arrested.
Lusi, of the center-left Democratic Party (PD), was taken
into custody earlier this year on suspected embezzlement of
Margherita funds when he was still its treasurer before the
party merged with the reformed rump of Italy's old Communist
party in 2007 to form the PD.
He was expelled from the PD earlier this year after the
corruption scandal exploded.
Lusi is also accused of having slandered the president of
the Margherita party Francesco Rutelli.
His wife Giovanna Petricone Lusi, together with accountants
Mario Montecchia and Giovanni Sebastio, will stand trial for
possible criminal association.
