Milan, December 14 - Ex-Lombardy regional
councillor Nicole Minetti of former premier Silvio Berlusconi's
centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) party and Renzo Bossi of
the right-wing Northern League were among dozens of centre-right
politicians to be placed under investigation on suspicion of
misusing party funds, it emerged Friday.
Berlusconi's former dental hygienist, 27, allegedly spent
around 800 euros on food and drink at the five-star Principe di
Savoia hotel in Milan.
Renzo Bossi, otherwise known as 'the trout' because of his
looks, is the son of the Northern League's historic leader
Umberto.
On Friday Milan prosecutors announced a new corruption
probe involving around 40 Lombardy regional councillors
representing PdL and the Northern League.
The investigation follows on the heels of earlier probes
that led to the collapse of the Lombardy executive
administration led by Roberto Formigoni, also of the PdL, in
October.
Lombardy is due to go to the polls to elect a new regional
administration early next year.
In a separate case, Minetti is on trial in Milan for
allegedly procuring prostitutes for alleged sex parties at
Berlusconi's private residence at Arcore near Milan.
Co-defendants in the case are bankrupt talent scout Lele
Mora and former TV anchorman Emilio Fede.
Berlusconi himself is on trial in a parallel case for
allegedly paying for sex with a then underage Moroccan
prostitute known as Ruby and allegedly getting police to release
her from custody on an unrelated theft claim.
Both Ruby and Berlusconi deny having sex.
