Ex-PD Senator arrested in Puglia 'health scam'

Bari, March 15 - A former Senator in the centre-left Democratic Party (PD), Alberto Tedesco, was arrested Friday over a suspected Puglia healthcare scam after his parliamentary immunity elapsed with the opening of the new legislature in Rome. Tedesco, a former health councillor in the southeastern Italian region, was placed under house arrest. He is suspected of conspiracy, corruption, embezzlement, fraud and contract-rigging, police said. Puglia Governor Nichi Vendola, leader of the leftwing SEL party and a key PD ally, was cleared in the case last month.
