Ingroia says WWF chief to join his Civil Revolution party

Rome, January 18 - Former Italian mafia prosecutor Antonio Ingroia on Friday announced Stefano Leoni, the head of the Italian arm of the World Wide Fund (WWF), was joining his new political party, Civil Revolution, in the lead up to next month's Italian general election. He added that Leoni was stepping down from the helm of the environmental association in order to run in February 24-25 vote.
