Rome, June 13 - Some 16 million euros of property
seized from former Democratic Party (PD) Senator Luigi Lusi will
be handed over to the State, Italy's Audit Court said on
Thursday.
Lusi was indicted earlier this year for allegedly
embezzling 22 million euros of funds from the coffers of the
now-defunct centre-left Margherita party when he was treasurer.
He spent almost a year under house arrest in an Abruzzo
convent before being released on bail in May.
The court ruled that the funds will be handed over to the
State, not political parties.
Lusi "has admitted his administrative responsibility and
has not contested the damages derived from his illicit
management of the political party funds," the court said.
The court subtracted 6.25 million euros from the total of
22.81 million euros Lusi allegedly siphoned from party coffers
for previous taxes and levies already paid by the former
Senator.
