Former Lombardy councillor released from pre-trial jail


Milan, April 22 - Lombardy's former regional
councillor Domenico Zambetti was released Monday pending his
trial on charges of vote-trading with the 'Ndrangheta mafia.
Lawyers for Zambetti, who has been in pre-trial custody for
the past six months, had argued that it wasn't necessary to keep
him jailed.
Last month, the prosecution called for an immediate trial
for former Zambetti on charges of buying votes from the
Calabrian-based 'Ndrangheta mafia, which is suspected of
infiltrating Lombardy politics.
Prosecutors claim Zambetti got 4,000 votes from 'Ndrangheta
in exchange for 200,000 euros and several jobs as well as
contract promises.
Zambetti denies the charges and claims the mafia forced him
to make payments and promise favours.
