Speaker's expenses questioned

Prosecutors to probe Sicily assembly budget, party documents

(ANSA) - Palermo, September 25 - Palermo prosecutors are to examine the budget of the Sicilian regional assembly and documents pertaining to spending by party caucuses as part of a probe opened on Tuesday. The investigation comes in the wake of funding scandals involving parties from both sides of the political fence in Milan, Rome and other cities. On Tuesday youth coordinator for the Great South party Massimo Cusimano called on the speaker of the regional assembly Francesco Cascio to ''disclose the list of expenses made using reserved funds at his disposal because the assembly president has the moral obligation, even before the political obligation, to say how he spends citizens' money''. Cascio allegedly spent his entire budget allocation of 380,000 euros for 2010 and had the same amount available to him the following year. In the 2012 budget he was allocated 342,000 euros. photo: assembly building in Palermo, Palazzo dei Normanni
