Prosecution asks for prison term of six years-plus for Fitto


Bari, January 21 - Prosecutors asked Monday that
Raffaele Fitto, a former cabinet minister in the government of
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi, be sent to prison for more than
six years for fraud-related charges.
Fitto faces prison for charges of corruption, embezzlement,
and abuse of his public office.
Investigators say Fitto, who served as regional affairs
minister under Berlusconi from May 2008 to November 2011,
accepted a bribe of 500,000 euros from Rome businessman
Giampaolo Angelucci.
Sentencing was postponed and may not come until late
February, possibly after the general Italian election set for
February 24 and February 25.
As well, Fitto - governor of Puglia from 2000 to 2005 - is
accused of illegally ensuring a company called Fiorita won the
contract for all cleaning services for public health authorities
in the Puglia region.
Another contract that came into question, worth 198 million
euros, was awarded to a company owned by Angelucci for the
management of 11 assisted care residences.
The prosecutor in Bari also asked for a prison term of four
years and six months, plus the confiscation of 10.5 million
euros, for Angelucci, accused of corruption and unlawful public
funding to political parties.
