Rome, February 1 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano on Friday scolded the media over its reporting of
investigations into alleged fraud at troubled bank Monte dei
Paschi di Siena (MPS).
Napolitano told representatives of the country's
journalists' guild that the media had received a "strong rebuke"
from prosecutors in Siena over reports about the case.
He said it was important to avoid "short-circuits" between
the press and the judicial system.
On Thursday the Tuscan prosecutors denied media reports
that their investigation was escalating to include the extremely
serious allegation of criminal association.
They 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" against those
behind the reports, given MPS is a company listed on the stock
exchange.
