Ex-top cop set for Finmeccanica hot seat


Rome, July 3 - Former police chief Gianni De
Gennaro was widely touted to become the new CEO of the
State-controlled Italian defence and aerospace contractor
Finmeccanica on Wednesday.
An announcement is expected later in the day.
Finmeccanica has been leaderless since ex-CEO Giuseppe Orsi
was arrested in February on charges of corruption in relation
to bribes allegedly paid to secure a contract to sell 12
AgustaWestland helicopters to India.
Authorities in both Italy and India have been investigating
Finmeccanica, which employs some 70,000 people around the world,
over the alleged kickbacks paid in the sale of the helicopters
to India.
De Gennaro is also the former director of the Department of
Information Security (DIS) and was an undersecretary in the
government of ex-premier Mario Monti.
He was acquitted last October on charges that he pressured
a former Genoa police chief to commit perjury in a trial over
police brutality at the G8 summit in 2001.
News of his likely appointment irked members of Italy's
opposition parties on Wednesday.
The anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) decried his
"murky" record on the G8 incident, while the leftist SEL party
chided the government for not bringing the issue of the vacant
post before parliament.
A Finmeccanica shareholders meeting on the the new
appointment is scheduled Thursday.
