Probes continue into alleged funds misappropriation

Chair of Lazio region's cabinet office investigated

Rome, October 29 - The Chair of Lazio region's cabinet office Mario Abbruzzese and councillor Isabella Rauti are among those being probed in a wave of recent scandals involving the alleged misappropriation of public funds. Both are from ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom party (PdL) and Rauti is the wife of Rome mayor Gianni Alemanno. Earlier this month Franco Fiorito, the former caucus chief in the Lazio region for the PdL was arrested for allegedly embezzling public money. At the time of his arrest, Fiorito said that "Abbruzzese was aware of how the funds were being divided up" and helped those doing it. The political funds scandals also caused the PdL's Renata Polverini to step down as governor of Lazio late September. Photo: Lazio regional councillor Isabella Rauti.
