Macerata, April 5 - A couple in economic
difficulties were found hanged Friday morning in the Marche
region.
The man, 62, was one of thousands of so-called 'esodati'
('exiled ones') left without a pension or wages because of the
government's hike in the retirement age 16 months ago.
Police told reporters there was "no doubt" the couple
killed themselves out of desperation at their inability to
survive economically.
Neighbours who found the dead bodies in the town of
Civitanova Marche told police the pair were unable to get by on
the small pension of the 68-year-old wife.
"They couldn't even pay the rent," neighbours said.
Suicides have risen during Italy's worst recession in
years, deepened by outgoing Premier Mario Monti's austerity
policies.
The government passed a law to help 40,000 esodati through
till retirement but unions say their overall number is much
higher, at least 150,000.
