Polverini 'aware of funding system' in Lazio scandal

Official probed for embezzlement implicates governor

Polverini 'aware of funding system' in Lazio scandal

(ANSA) – Rome, September 20 - Lazio regional councillor Franco Fiorito, under investigation for inappropriate use and embezzlement of electoral funds in Italy's latest corruption scandal, said Thursday the regional governor must have been aware of how the funds were disbursed. "The governor of the region Renata Polverini could not have not known, since the decision was made by the whole administration," Fiorito said when he was questioned by prosecutors in Rome Thursday. Fiorito is the former head of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party in the administration of the region around Rome. Polverini is hinting she will stand down because of the scandal but Berlusconi has said she should stay.
