Italian MP, Senate candidate sentenced to jail for fraud


Milan, January 24 - An MP from the southern region
of Campania running for a Senate seat in the February 24-25
national elections has been sentenced to three years and three
months in prison for fraud.
Gerardo Soglia, an MP running under the banner of the Big
South (Grande Sud) electoral list of the center-right, was
accused of fraud over the bankruptcy of travel company Buon
Viaggio, which collapsed in 2010.
"I am totally innocent have nothing to do with the crimes
leveled against me and, soon, by appealing, I will demonstrate
(my innocence) with a full acquittal," Soglia said Thursday
after the sentencing.
Prosecutors also asked that Soglia, an entrepreneur in the
tourism industry and president of Pescara Calcio soccer club, be
banned from serving in public office for five years.
