ANSA) - Parma, January 16 - Parma soccer boss Tommaso
Ghirardi is among several people under investigation for
suspected graft in the northern Italian city, judicial sources
said Wednesday.
The chairman of the Serie A club allegedly got a discount
on rent at the city stadium in exchange for giving former mayor
Pietro Vignali a press officer, police said.
Vignali, a 44-year-old who served as mayor of Parma
from 2007 to 2011 on a centre-right ticket, is accused of
misappropriation of public money and corruption.
Investigators believe he illegally used city money for
electoral-campaign spending and was involved in relatives and
friends obtaining jobs in public bodies.
From 2001 to 2007, Vignali was Parma's executive councillor
for environment and transportation.
He was forced to resign on September 28, 2011 after a
number of city officials and members of his city executive were
implicated in a corruption probe.
Vignali's resignation led to early elections in May 2012
won by Parma's current mayor, Federico Pizzarotti, a member of
comedian Beppe Grillo's anti-establishment Five Star Movement
(M5S).
Parma are joint eighth in Serie A, 15 points behind leaders
Juventus.
