Scilipoti, Razzi 'not probed' for corruption


Rome, March 6 - Rome prosecutors have denied that
two centre-left Senators who switched to ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi's coalition to save his government from falling in
December 2010 have been formally placed under investigation for
receiving bribes.
But the prosecutors said they were looking into the pair's
Domenico Scilipoti and Antonio Razzi, former members of the
Italy of Values (IdV) party, were widely accused of selling out
when they became part of a group of self-proclaimed "patriotic"
parliamentarians who saved Berlusconi's majority after the
defection of heir-turned-foe Gianfranco Fini.
Scilipoto and Razzi have denied taking money in return for
switching sides.
IdV leader Antonio Di Pietro, a former Clean Hands
graftbuster, filed various legal complaints about the two
turncoats at the time.
Another former member of the IdV, Sergio De Gregorio, is
under investigation in a separate case in which he came forward
in December and claimed he accepted three million euros from
Berlusconi in 2006 to "sabotage" the centre-left government of
Romano Prodi, which fell in 2008.
Berlusconi claims De Gregorio made up the accusations.
