Ex MPS chief Mussari contested on arrival for questioning


Siena, February 15 - Monte dei Paschi di Siena
(MPS) former chairman Giuseppe Mussari met with a small crowd of
angry protesters Friday as he entered the local courthouse for
questioning by prosecutors over his role in a major financial
scandal at his troubled former bank.
People threw coins and shouted ''thief'' and ''buffoon'' at
the former chair who resigned as chief of the Italian banking
association ABI last month after it emerged that shady
derivatives operations conducted by MPS while he was at the helm
had led to previously undisclosed losses of hundreds of millions
of euros.
Mussari is now reportedly under investigation for market
manipulation, fraud, obstructing the work of banking watchdogs,
issuing false statements and - as of Thursday - collusion in
obstruction of proper oversight with the former head of the MPS
finance department Gianluca Baldassari and ex-director-general
Antonio Vigni.
Separate probes into the scandal at the world's oldest bank
are underway in Rome and Trani in the southern region of Puglia.
