Milan, May 22 - A judge on Wednesday lifted graft
and extortion charges against ex-president of the provincial
government of Milan, Filippo Penati, ruling that the events in
question had passed the statute of limitations.
Penati was placed under investigation in July 2011 in
connection with alleged kickbacks at the former industrial hub
of Sesto San Giovanni just north of Milan, a rustbelt town that
has been revamped in recent years.
That probe also involved suspected bribes on various highway
projects.
Penati, who is hoping to clear his name, protested to the
ruling which took place in Monza, a city just north of Milan, on
Wednesday.
"As announced, within the next few days I will appeal to the
(supreme) Court of Cassation to cancel the statute of
limitations ruling, which the prosecutors wanted, for events
that happened 13 years ago," said Penati.
Penati is the former political adviser of the leader of
Italy's largest centre-left group, Pier Luigi Bersani of the
Democratic Party.
