Rome, June 19 - Italy's Northern League demanded
the resignation of sports minister Josefa Idem Wednesday over
news reports suggesting she evaded taxes.
The League presented a motion of no confidence in Idem, who
is also minister of equal opportunities, referring as well to
her birth in Germany.
A retired international athlete, Idem won five Olympic
medals as a sprint canoeist including the gold she won in Sydney
in 2000.
According to media reports, she maintained two residences
in the Ravenna area, one apparently fitted out as a commercial
gym, but avoided paying all the relevant taxes.
Idem referred questions to her lawyer.
Although Idem is new to cabinet, she has some political
experience.
From 2001 to 2007 she served as Ravenna city councillor
delegate for sports, as member of the centre-left Olive Tree
alliance.
She then became a member of the Democratic Party (PD), and
was tapped as a parliamentary candidate for the Senate after
winning the party's 2012 primary elections.
