Piedmont councillor quits but resignation refused

Turin, February 19 - Piedmont Economy Councillor Massimo Giordano quit Tuesday after police raided his home and offices amid a corruption probe - but the former Novara mayor's resignation was refused by Piedmont Governor Roberto Cota, a fellow member of the regionalist Northern League party. Cota said he was satisfied with Giordano's assurances he did nothing wrong. Piedmont is the latest Italian region to be hit by graft probes which last year led to the resignation of the governors of Lombardy and Lazio.
