Regional administration 'correct' in stadium case, governor


Rome, June 13 - Lazio Governor Nicola Zingaretti on
Wednesday said the regional administration acted in a correct
manner regarding AS Roma's project to build a new stadium in the
capital at the center of a corruption case.
Zingaretti said the regional administration conducted the
'conference of services', a committee that coordinates different
administrative branches, "in a technically correct and
transparent way".
"No regional manager or official was involved in measures
adopted by the judiciary".
Zingaretti also expressed support for the former regional
councilor for urban planning Michele Civita, a member of his
Democratic Party considered close to him who was placed under
house arrest Wednesday as part of the probe.
Expressing full confidence in the investigation, Zingaretti
said he has "always considered Michele Civita an honest man of
the institutions, I am convinced that he will be able to prove
his case".
The Vice President of the Lazio Regional Assembly, Forza
Italia (FI) member Adriano Palozzi, construction businessman
Luca Parnasi and Luca Lanzalone, the president of water and
energy utility ACEA, were among nine people arrested Wednesday.
Paolo Ferrara, the caucus head of Rome Mayor Virginia Raggi's
5-Star Movement (M5S) in the city assembly is among 16 people
under investigation along with David Bordoni, Forza Italia's
leader in the council.
The investigation concerns alleged corruption connected to a
revision of the initial project.
The revision was approved by Raggi's administration in
February 2017 and saw the volume cut by half.
