Alfano's chief of staff quits over Kazakh case

Rome, July 16 - Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Angelino Alfano's chief of staff at the interior ministry, Giuseppe Procaccini, has resigned over the controversial deportation from Italy of the daughter and wife of Kazakh dissident Mukhtar Ablyazov. Procaccini was reportedly contacted by Kazakhstan's ambassador to Rome in relation to the expulsion before it took place. Alfano, who is also the secretary of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) party, has said he did not know anything about the case until after the pair were deported.
