Rome, January 15 - Piergiorgio Stiffoni, former
treasurer of the Northern League in the Senate, was charged
Tuesday with embezzlement.
Stiffoni has been under investigation for more than a year
as prosecutors probed the illegal use of funds that were
allocated to the political party.
Investigators had previously accused members of the
scandal-hit Northern League of using public party funds to buy
diamonds worth 400,000 euros and gold bullion worth 200,000
euros.
The accusations were part of an investigation into former
League treasurer Francesco Belsito for allegedly channelling
public funds to the family of ex-leader Umberto Bossi, who
stepped down at the beginning of April 2012.
Belsito is accused of buying the jewels along with former
Senate deputy speaker Rosy Mauro, expelled from the party in
April, and Stiffoni.
Probes were also launched into Northern League activities
by investigators in Milan, Naples, Reggio Calabria, Reggio
Emilia, and Genoa.
