Former civil servants ordered to stand trial for corruption


Rome, May 27 - Several former senior civil servants
charged with corruption in contracts for major world events in
Italy, including a meeting of the Group of Eight (G8) leaders,
were ordered Monday to stand trial this fall.
Preliminary hearings judge Maddalena Cipriani set September
30 to begin the criminal trial against entrepreneur Diego
Anemone, Angelo Balducci, the former chairman of the state board
of public works, and Gaetano Baldini, former executive in the
ministry of cultural heritage.
The investigation initially began in Florence in 2010, and
after an initial transfer to Perugia the probe was assigned to
Rome prosecutors.
Earlier this year, police seized 12 million euros in goods,
including homes, cars, motorcycles, as well as bank accounts and
investments belonging to Balducci and his family.
Charges stem from misuse of funds for a G8 summit as well
as other events including a world swimming meet and the 150th
anniversary celebration of the unification of Italy.
