Turin, September 3 - Giulia Maria Ligresti, a
daughter of a fallen patriarch of an Italian insurance and real
estate dynasty, plea bargained her sentence for involvement in
the Fonsai insurance probe to two years and eight months plus a
20,000 euro fine in a Turin court on Tuesday.
In a deal approved by the Turin court, Ligresti also agreed
hand over her real estate stakes in the Pegaso company and
insurance policies.
The value of these assets were not quantified during the
hearing but sources close to the investigation estimate they are
worth several million euros.
The Ligresti family are the former majority owners of the
Fonsai and Milano Assicurazioni insurance companies.
Giulia was among three members of the Ligresti family
arrested in July for alleged involvement in cooking the books at
Fonsai to the tune of 600 million euros in the 2010 balance
sheet.
Salvatore Ligresti, the family patriarch and former
honorary chairman of Fonsai, was put under house arrest along
with two former executives from the insurance company.
Two of Ligresti's children, Ionella and Giulia Ligresti,
were arrested along with a former managing director of the
company, Emanuele Erbetta.
An arrest warrant was also issued for a third child of
Salvatore Ligresti, Gioacchino Paolo Ligresti, who is currently
in Switzerland.
In August, Italian police seized over 250 million euros in
assets from the
Ligresti family, including luxury hotels from the Atahotels
chain in Turin and Milan, bank accounts and insurance policies.
Fonsai is seeking 32 million euros in damages from the
former majority shareholders in addition to a 245-million-euro
payout approved in March.
