(ANSA) – Milan, December 20 – An additional 37 regional
councillors have been placed under investigation in Milan,
adding to the many already being probed as part of an expenses
investigation being carried out by local magistrates.
The total number of people under investigation is 62.
Prosecutors on December 14 had started probing dozens of other
regional politicians for alleged misuse of public funds.
The investigation follows a series of corruption probes
that led Governor Roberto Formigoni to dissolve his executive in
October. Formigoni is suspected of wrongdoing related to
health-sector contracts in one of those cases. He denies any
wrongdoing.
The suspects could face charges of embezzlement over the
alleged misappropriation of party funds, including for personal
use. One councillor is reported to have spent 750 euros on
ammunition for hunting.
