Palermo, November 28 - Palermo prosecutors on Monday added another three suspects to their list of 10 members of the populist, euroskeptic 5-Star Movement (M5S) being investigated in an electoral tampering case for faking and cloning citizen signatures in 2012 local elections. The new suspects were named as Pietro Savino, who is married to Lower House MP Claudia Mannino, and MP Giulia Di Vita. The third suspect has not been named. Mannino invoked her right to remain silent under questioning by prosecutors on Monday, and also refused to give a handwriting sample. Her husband did the same. A total of three of the suspects have so far declined to answer prosecutors. M5S activist Alice Pantaleone did reply to prosectors and has reportedly denied being present at M5S campaign headquarters when the signatures were copied over in 2012.
