Company officials probed in long-running fraud probe


Rome, March 27 - Finance police are investigating
five people in connection with alleged fraud totalling 166
million euros related to the construction of the venue for a
Group of Eight summit in Italy in 2009.
The fraud relates to construction projects by the Anemone
group in preparation for the G8 meeting that had been originally
slated for the Sardinian island of La Maddalena.
Those international meetings were moved at the last minute
to Abruzzo to honour the 309 people killed in a devastating
earthquake earlier that year.
Assets valued at 32 million euros have also been seized as
part of the ongoing investigation.
Finance specialists say they have found parallel accounting
and numerous other kinds of fraudulent activity, such as work
paid for but never completed, related to public contracts
handled by the Anemone group.
It faces numerous other investigations related to
fraudulent activities on other public contracts.
Companies within the Anemone group accused in this case
include Anemone Construction Ltd.; Magdalene Scarl; Arsenal
Scarl; Cogecal Srl.; and Techno-cos Srl.
The head of the group, Rome businessman Diego Anemone, was
arrested in February 2010 for alleged graft in public tenders
for work on other State venues as well as private real-estate
deals involving politicians.
