Roman artefacts found in raid on ex-Berlusconi minister


Imperia, July 30 - Police searched the home of
former cabinet minister Claudio Scajola Tuesday, one of two
raids against his client on the same day, his lawyer said.
Marco Mangia said the first raid was by police specializing
in protecting the cultural heritage of the Savona region of
northwestern Italy.
They were searching for and found amphorae dating to Roman
The second search was carried out by finance police, the
lawyer said.
Mangia said that Scajola can justify to Italy's
superintendent of cultural heritage his possession of these
ancient objects.
"My client has provided explanations and documentation for
the superintendent," said Mangia.
Giuseppa Geremia, chief prosecutor for Imperia, said the
searches relate to an investigation launched in April into
illegal financing of political parties.
Scajola served as industry minister under ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi and is under investigation in other cases, including
a real-estate deal in Rome and for alleged corruption concerning
Brazilian contracts for Italian defence giant Finmeccanica.
