Mayor of Battipaglia arrested for suspected Camorra deals


Naples, May 8 - The mayor of the Campania city of
Battipaglia was arrested Wednesday morning for suspected
contract rigging as part of broader investigations into Camorra
mafia dealings in the southern region.
Investigators believe that Mayor Giovanni Santomauro
granted city contracts to companies linked to the powerful
Casalesi clan.
Charges against the mayor could include bid rigging,
bribery and aggravated abuse of office, investigators said.
Building contractor Nicola Madonna was also arrested,
suspected of illegally obtaining contracts from the city of
Battipaglia worth five million euros.
The Casalesis are the Camorra clan whose death threats have
forced anti-mafia writer Roberto Saviano, author of the 2006
bestseller Gomorrah, into round-the-clock police protection.
