Former Italy secret service chief probed for corruption


Naples, November 22 - Italy's former secret service
chief Nicolo' Pollari, known for his role in the CIA abduction
of Muslim cleric Hassan Mustafa Omar Nasr, is under
investigation for alleged corruption.
The case regards members of Italy's financial police (GdF)
accused of renting property from Naples realtor Achille D'Avanzo
at exorbitant rates.
Search warrants have targeted General Walter Cretella
Lombardo, GdF commander of the Veneto region, and D'Avanzo.
Investigators are looking at Pollari's role in the purchase
of real estate in Rome.
Before becoming a State councillor, Pollari headed what was
the SISMI intelligence agency, which is now the AISE.
He and his ex-No.2, Marco Mancini, are currently awaiting a
retrial at the Milan Court of Appeals for their role in the
abduction of Nasr from Milan, a case which grabbed headlines in
The two have twice been acquitted on appeal in the past
because of a State-secrecy injunction.
In September, Italy's top court of appeals upheld the
convictions of 22 CIA agents and a retired US air force officer
in the case and has requested their extradition.
