Bologna, November 8 - Public prosecutors in
Bologna on Thursday acquitted Emilia-Romagna Governor Vasco
Errani in a fast-track procedure on charges that he favored his
brother in a business deal that made use of public funds.
Prosecutors alleged that in 2005 Errani helped his
brother, Giovanni, obtain one million euros in regional funds
used to pay for the building of a new winery in the Terremerse
cooperative, in the town of Imola.
The investigation into the loan began in 2009, after
Italian daily newspaper Il Giornale suggested there may have
been irregularities in the issuing of the funds.
The prosecutors' actions unleashed comments from across
Italy's political spectrum, including calls for his resignation.
Errani's lawyer, Alessandro Gamberini, accused local
prosecutors of making a "serious mistake".
Following Thursday's acquittal Gamberini said that if
Errani would have been found guilty, it would have "inevitably
led to his resignation".
"Governor Errani is an honest man," said Gamberini.
