Dozens of Italian public employees caught in nepotism sting

Rome, June 28 - Finance police on Friday charged 45 public employees and officials in the provincial government of Latina, a coastal city about 70 km south of Rome, in a nepotism probe. Investigators say provincial officials ignored employment regulations and prerequisites to hire dozens of relatives of provincial councillors, managers and aldermen. The financial damage of the case to the provincial government is estimated at five million euros. The public employees in question all illicitly used a special provision for hiring unemployed people from vocational training programs. In some cases, public employees quit jobs in the provincial administration to access this privileged route to better employment, prosecutors believe. Investigators found that the only people who managed to take advantage of the special employment provision were relations of provincial public administrators, managers or politicians.
