Rome, February 13 - 5-Star Movement (M5S) premier
candidate Luigi Di Maio on Tuesday went to the Lower House's
bank on Tuesday accompanied by a reporter from the Mediaset
investigative reporting show Le Iene, sources said.
The show broke a story about allegations some M5S lawmakers
have been failing to respect pledges regarding voluntary
reimbursements of part of their salaries.
Sources said there could be a "hole" of as much as one
million euros regarding unpaid reimbursements.
The premier candidate may have gone to ask the bank to
provide details of bank transfers made by M5S lawmakers to a
fund for microcredit for small businesses.
Di Maio has pledged that the M5S will root out the "bad
apples" that have failed to respect the commitments imposed by
the anti-establishment movement.
On Monday M5S Senator Maurizio Buccarella suspended himself
from the movement after admitting to making a "slipup" with the
bank transfers for the reimbursements.
The M5S prides itself on "honesty" and on being untainted by
corruption.
Di Maio said all MPs, MEPs and local councillors found in
breach of internal party regulations concerning reimbursements
would receive the same treatment as Andrea Cecconi and Carlo
Martelli, who lost backing from the movement for the March 4
parliamentary election following claims by an ex party militant
broadcast by Le Iene that they had pretended to reimburse nearly
100,000 euros collectively in expenses payments.
