(ANSA) – Milan, April 30 – Milan prosecutors are taking
measures to seize a yacht currently located in Tunisia purchased
by the son of Northern League party founder and former leader
Umberto Bossi, as part of a wider investigation into the alleged
misuse of public funds which earlier this month saw the former
treasurer of the separatist political group arrested.
Italian authorities have contacted their Tunisian
counterparts through a letter rogatory requesting they be
permitted to gain control of the vessel that is currently moored
in a local port.
Former Northern League treasurer Francesco Belsito was
arrested in April on charges of alleged criminal association and
aggravated fraud.
He had been under investigation since a probe into alleged
misuse of public funding to the party broke last year in a
scandal that led Bossi to quit.
Earlier this month, reports emerged of a 2.5-million-euro
yacht that was bought by Riccardo, one of Bossi's sons, as part
of an alleged widespread embezzlement scheme that involved
public funds.
