Dead countess's lover sought 'over tax swindle charges'

Dead countess's lover sought 'over tax swindle charges'

Genoa, June 13 - A judge has issued an arrest warrant for the former lover of the late Countess Francesca Vacca Agusta, the wealthy heiress whose disappearance and death made Italian headlines a decade ago. "Maurizio Raggio is to be considered on the run," Genoa Prosecutor Francesco Cozzi told ANSA. He is reportedly wanted for tax fraud regarding money and assets inherited from the countess. Raggio became a well-known figure during the legal battle over the inheritance of Agusta, who died after falling into the sea in January 2001 under mysterious circumstances. A series of disputes over the dead aristocrat's wills, of which several copies appeared after her death, dragged on for years. Raggio has also been embroiled in other legal proceedings, including a much-publicized confiscation of his Italian and foreign assets which were placed under judicial restrain as part of a probe into alleged money laundering.
