Ten arrested over air-traffic-control contracts


Rome, July 10 - Police on Wednesday arrested 10
people and searched over 100 offices across Italy as part of an
investigation into the bankruptcy of a company which worked for
Italian air-traffic-control agency Enav through a unit of
transport and defence conglomerate Finmeccanica.
Overall 23 people are reportedly under investigation in
connection with the activities of the company, Trade Arc, on
charges of bankruptcy fraud, false invoices, money laundering
and fraudulent transfer of assets.
Investigators suspect that Enav commissioned projects
without a mandatory public contract to Selex Sistemi Integrati
Spa, an enterprise owned by State-backed aeronautics and defence
contractor Finmeccanica, which is involved in a separate
investigation by Rome prosecutors.
Selex in turn subcontracted to a number of companies
including Arc Trade whose role was to create slush funds to
bribe officials in order to obtain new contracts.
Arc Trade was then deliberately led to file for bankruptcy,
according to investigators, by paying off false invoices issued
by complicit companies for a total value of 14 million euros.
