Inquiry opened into Emilia-Romagna region

Latest anti-corruption move after wave of scandals

Inquiry opened into Emilia-Romagna region

(ANSA) - Bologna, September 28 - Bologna prosecutors on Friday opened an inquiry into the Emilia-Romagna region's handling of public funds. The prosecutors, who cite no specific wrongdoing, are already investigating Paolo Nanni, the Bologna provincial leader of the anti-corruption party Italy of Values (IdV), for allegedly mishandling party money. "If Paolo Nanni has any explanations, he'll tell them to the prosecutors. Otherwise he'll answer to the law," said party leader and former anti-graft judge Antonio Di Pietro. The inquiry was announced shortly after police searched party offices at the Piedmont regional administration on Friday in a preliminary inquiry into suspected over-spending by various caucuses. They are the latest in a string of anti-corruption moves after a wave of scandals that hit Bari, Naples, Milan and Rome and forced Lazio governor Renata Polverini to quit earlier this week. Politicians have vowed to revise regional spending laws. photo: Paolo Nanni
