Rome, August 1 - A decree to save Europe's biggest
steel plant ILVA while working to make sure it stops polluting
the Puglia city of Taranto passed in the Senate on Thursday.
The decree, among other things, designates a group of
experts to oversee clean-up of the Taranto steel plant.
ILVA has been at the centre of a political and legal
battle since July 2012 when local magistrates ordered the
partial closure of the Taranto plant due to serious health
concerns.
The Riva group, which owns the ILVA steel plant, is the
biggest iron and steel producer in Italy, the fourth-biggest in
Europe and the 23rd-biggest in the world.
Earlier this month, prosecutors asked the courts to indict
Emilio Riva, ILVA's former head, on charges of massive tax
fraud.
Milan prosecutor Francesco Greco accused Riva, and two
other former executives of the steelmaker, of evading 52 million
euros in taxes dating back to 2007.
