Prosecutors ask for 12-year sentence for ex-Abruzzo governor


Pescara, June 12 - Prosecutors asked Wednesday for
a 12-year prison sentence for the former governor of the Abruzzo
region, Ottaviano Del Turco.
He was arrested almost five years ago in connection with an
alleged public health scam in the eastern Italian region.
Del Turco, a former Socialist trade union leader and
ex-finance minister, was arrested with nine others on suspicion
of fraud, corruption, embezzlement and money laundering
involving some 14 million euros.
Del Turco is suspected of taking a bribe of almost six
million euros, police sources have said.
As well as the 11 people arrested with Del Turco in 2008,
25 others were placed under investigation for suspected
After a career in trade unions, Del Turco rose to the top
of Bettino Craxi's Socialist Party before it was swept away in
the Bribesville scandals of 1992-94.
He stayed on the centre left and served as head of
parliament's Anti-Mafia Commission between 1996 and 2000, when
he was named finance minister.
