Letta defends top cop's appointment to Finmeccanica post

Rome, July 10 - Premier Enrico Letta defended the appointment of a former police chief to run Finmeccanica during questioning Wednesday by the 5-Star Movement (M5S). Gianni De Gennaro's appointment to the state-controlled Italian defence and aerospace contractor was "based on the principles of transparency," Letta said. But the anti-etablishment M5S was not satisfied with the response, pointing out De Gennaro's record as chief of police during a controversial and violent Group of Eight leaders summit in Genoa in 2001. "In any democratic country, De Gennaro would have been retired," said Massimo Artini, an M5S MP. (photo: Gianni De Gennaro)
