The judicial assault on the League is back. The Court of Cassation upheld the verdict of the Genoa re-examination court and gave the green light to the seizure of the funds of the Carroccio up to the sum of 49 million euro. With this decision the sixth penal section of the Supreme Court rejected the appeal presented by the leader of the League Matteo Salvini against the order of the review. Last September, the green light to prevent seizure had been given. It should be noted, however, that with the ruling this evening remains the pact of installment that the League has stipulated with the Genoa prosecutor.
The seizure order was requested by the Genoa prosecutor in relation to the alleged fraud against the State for electoral reimbursements not due from 2008 to 2010, for which the former leader of the Carroccio Umberto Bossi, former treasurer Francesco Belsito and three former auditors. With the verdict of the Supreme Court, the request by the substitute pg Marco Dall'Olio is welcomed that during the audience held yesterday morning, he had solicited the rejection of the appeal presented by the owner of the Viminale.
