Genoa, January 22 - Three regional councillors in
Liguria of the Italy of Values (IdV) party founded by one-time
anti-corruption prosecutor Antonio Di Pietro are being probed
for embezzlement as part of an investigation by Genoa
prosecutors into the expenses of local politicians and the
regional council.
Also being probed by the authorities are Maruska Piredda,
IdV's current party caucus head in Liguria, along with the
party's regional treasurer, Giorgio De Lucchi, and his
girlfriend.
IdV, an anti-graft party, has suffered several defections
in the national parliament since one of its leading members was
arrested on embezzlement charges late last year and Italy's top
investigative TV show reported on Di Pietro's extensive property
portfolio.
Funding scandals have hit across the political spectrum
around Italy in the last two years and have led to the
resignations of the governors of Lombardy and Lazio, members of
ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom party.
