More assets seized from indicted ex-public works chief


Rome, June 7 - Italian police on Friday seized 13
million euros in assets from Angelo Balducci, the former head of
Italy's public-works board who is at the centre of a huge
contract-rigging case.
Balducci was indicted with several others last month in
connection with alleged corruption linked to major events
including the original Sardinian venue for the 2008 Group of
Eight summit, which was eventually moved to quake-ravaged
L'Aquila in Abruzzo.
It was the second asset seizure for Balducci after one
earlier this year which amounted to 12 million euros.
In both, homes, cars, motorcycles, bank accounts and
investments belonging to Balducci and his family were seized.
Balducci was among several former senior civil servants
charged with corruption along with prominent Rome construction
magnate Diego Anemone on May 27 in connection with contracts for
big events, also including the 2009 world swimming championships
in Rome and the 2011 celebrations of the 150th anniversary of
the unification of Italy.
Anemone, Balducci and Gaetano Baldini, a former executive
at the culture ministry, will go on trial in Rome September 30.
