Former Nomura boss probed, 1.8 billion seized over MPS

(see related story) Rome, April 16 - Italian prosecutors seized 1.8 billion euros of assets belonging to Nomura on Tuesday and said they had put the Japanese bank's former chief executive in Europe, the Middle East and Africa under investigation in relation to a probe into a financial scandal at Monte dei Paschi di Siena (MPS). Nomura was involved in a series of suspect derivative and structured-finance deals that left a hole of around 720 million euros in the balance sheet of Italy's third biggest lender. Prosecutors said Sadeq Sayeed, the former head of Nomura International plc, was being probed along with another senior official from the Japanese investment bank, Raffaele Ricci. Around 14 million euros belonging to former MPS chairman Giuseppe Mussari, former director general Antonio Vigni and former finance chief Gianluca Baldassarri were seized on Tuesday too.
