Lusi guilty of 25-mn-euro embezzlement

P(ANSA) – Rome, May 2 – The former treasurer of a defunct Italian political party was found guilty of embezzling more than 25 million euros in public election funds and sentenced to eight years in prison on Friday. Luigi Lusi, a former Senator in the center-left Daisy Party, has been under house arrest since last May after his release from prison. The now-defunct party was among a number of Italian parties hit by funding scandals in recent years, increasing public disaffection with politics. Lusi is expected to appeal the Rome lower-court ruling.BR/P
