Three arrested in Basilicata political funds probe


Potenza, April 24 - Three politicians in the
southern Italian region of Basilicata were put under
house-arrest on Wednesday in a probe into fraudulent use of
party expenses.
Seven Basilicata regional councillors were prohibited from
staying in the city of their workplace, the regional capital
Potenza, as part the same probe.
A former regional councillor was banned from the town of
Valsinni, where he holds a political office.
Prosecutors said the probe had uncovered "a scenario of
widespread illegality".
Assets worth 100,000 euros were seized in amounts that
ranged from 5,000 to 18,000 euros per individual under
Those facing house-arrest are Work and Education
Commissioner Vincenzo Viti, Agriculture Commissioner Rosa
Mastrosimone and the regional councillor Nicola Pagliuca.
Pagliuca is the Basilicata regional caucus leader of Silvio
Berlusconi's centre-right People of Freedom Party (PdL). Viti
belongs to the centre-left Democratic Party (PD), and
Mastrosimone to the anti-graft Italy of Values Party (IdV).
