Taranto, November 28 - Rescue divers have stopped
searching for a 29-year-old employee of the ILVA steel plant who
fell into the company harbor after a small tornado hit earlier
in the day.
As dusk settled, port authorities decided to call off the
search for the man until Thursday, as darkness and poor weather
conditions made the search too dangerous.
Earlier Wednesday the head of Taranto's civil protection
unit said that ILVA production sites, which were battered by
heavy storms earlier in the day, were secure.
The troubled ILVA plant is at the center of a
legal-political dispute which could lead to its permanent
closing.
On Tuesday, Environment Minister Corrado Clini said that
the government was ready to take on prosecutors in order to keep
the steel plant open.
ILVA said Monday's court order for the seizure of steel and
semi-finished products as part of a corruption probe that saw
seven top managers arrested would lead to the "almost immediate"
closure of the plant.
The company said operations in other parts of Italy would
be shut down too as a result.
The Taranto plant's furnaces were placed under special
administration in July following accusations emissions from them
caused abnormally high levels of tumors and respiratory
diseases in the Taranto area.
ILVA and the government have been trying to keep the plant
in operation while remediation measures necessary for ILVA to
obtain environmental authorization (AIA) are carried out.
