Taranto, May 24 - Police in the southern city of
Taranto confiscated 8.1 billion euros worth of property and
goods on Friday belonging to the Riva family, owners of the
holding company that owns the troubled ILVA steel plant, as
widespread investigations against the Rivas continue.
Milan investigators on Wednesday said they are probing
Emilio and Adriano Riva for suspected of fraud against the State
and fake money transfers.
Some 1.2 billion euros transferred out of Italy by the
Rivas were also confiscated on Wednesday.
Last January, ILVA executive and family member Fabio Riva
was arrested in London after two months on the run.
Taranto prosecutors issued a European arrest warrant for
Fabio Riva, the deputy chairman of parent-company Riva, on
December 10 saying that he was sought as part of a criminal
probe into the environmental scandal at the facility.
Several other top managers have been arrested as part of
the investigations.
The Taranto plant is the biggest in Europe, and the Riva
group is the biggest iron and steel producer in Italy, the
fourth-biggest in Europe and the 23rd-biggest in the world.
ILVA has been at the centre of a political and legal battle
since July when local magistrates ordered the partial closure of
its Taranto plant due to serious health concerns.

Milano un sequestro di beni mobili e immobili e disponibilità
economiche per 8,1 miliardi di euro nei confronti della famiglia
Riva. I sequestri riguardano sia l'Ilva sia la Rivafire spa. Il
provvedimento è stato disposto dal Tribunale di Taranto.
