Perugia, September 16 - Italian police on Monday
arrested the chairman of Italy's state railroad engineering firm
Italferr, Maria Rita Lorenzetti, in a Florence-based probe into
Tuscan construction for the TAV high-speed-rail line.
"Risk of contaminating evidence" was cited as a reason for
holding Lorenzetti in a nearly 500-page arrest order that also
called for the house arrest of five others.
According to preliminary information, Lorenzetti is
suspected of corruption and conspiracy.
Italferr chief since 2010, Lorenzetti has always maintained
the integrity of her work.
The 60-year-old executive and ex-politician served two
terms as the governor of the Umbria region, four mandates as a
member of parliament, and began her career in politics as one of
Italy's first female mayors, elected to the post in her hometown
of Foligno in 1984.
Lorenzetti belongs to the centre-left Democratic Party
(PD).
Florence judge Angelo Antonio Pezzuti also ordered the
arrest on Monday of Gualtiero Bellomo, member of the an
environmental ministry commission; Furio Saraceno, chairman of
Nodavia, a company involved in high-speed-rail construction;
Valerio Lombardi, an Italferr technician; Alessandro Coletta, a
consultant and ex-member of the supervisory authority for public
bids; and Aristodemo Busillo of the Roman company Seli, which is
managing excavation of the "Monna Lisa" high-speed-train tunnel
under Florence.
