Prosecutors deny escalation of MPS probe


Rome, January 31 - Italian prosecutors on Thursday
denied media reports that their probe into alleged fraud at
troubled bank Monte dei Paschi di Siena (MPS) was escalating to
include more serious potential charges.
Prosecutors said in a statement that the reports were
"unfounded", stressing that they were "considering the opening
of criminal procedures for insider trading and market rigging".
Some newspapers and TV networks had said the prosecutors
were looking into possible allegations of criminal association,
an extremely serious charge.
MPS was thrown in crisis last week when it emerged that a
shady series of derivative and structured finance deals produced
losses of 720 million euros.
There have also been reports of bribery and corruption by
bank officials regarding, among other things, the costly
nine-billion-euro acquisition of rival Antonveneta in 2008.
Former chairman Giuseppe Mussari quit as the head of
Italian banking association ABI soon after the scandal broke.
He is said to have personally authorised at least one of
the derivative operations at the centre of the furore. He denies
any wrongdoing.
