Rome, February 22 - The Rome prosecutor's office
opened a probe on Friday into an election letter sent to
millions of Italians signed by ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi
about an IMU property-tax rebate.
The probe was instigated by a candidate for the regional
council in Lazio province, Gianfranco Mascia of the Civic
Revolution Party founded by former anti-Mafia prosecutor Antonio
Ingroia, who charged in a letter to prosecutors that
Berlusconi's campaign promise to refund the hated housing tax
amounts to money for votes.
Mascia said Berlusconi's promise to roll back IMU and
refund the four billion euros collected was "bribery".
"To obtain a refund for (the housing tax) IMU 2012, you
have to vote for the PdL".
He also complained that Berlusconi's campaign mail-outs to
Italian homes amounted to a "scam" because the envelopes,
bearing a signed letter from Berlusconi, "appear to claim to
contain an
IMU refund".
