Rome mayor to be heard by prosecutors in bus graft probe


Rome, March 27 - Roman Mayor Gianni Alemanno told
journalists on Wednesday that he was looking forward to clearing
his name in a graft probe that saw the arrest of the former CEO
of the company that runs the historic EUR district in Rome.
Alemanno is to be heard by prosecutors in a case regarding
alleged pay-offs made on city bus contracts.
The ex-CEO of EUR , Riccardo Mancini, is suspected of
accepting a bribe of 500,000 euros from leading bus-maker Breda
Menarini to supply Rome with 45 buses.
"To be heard in the prosecutor's office will be liberating
because finally there will be the possibility of facing the
justices and completely clarifying my position," Alemanno said.
"I have nothing to do with this event and my conscience is
in place. Thus I look forward to speaking in the prosecutor's
office with justices to clarify my position and to give my
version of the facts".
Mancini has been described in the press as having extremely
close ties to the mayor.
Alemanno slammed press reports on Wednesday, characterizing
many as defamatory and slanderous.
In addition to Mancini, the former CEO of Breda Menarini,
Roberto Ceraudo, as well as at least five other people are also
under investigation in the probe.
