De Luca acquitted of embezzlement (2)

But still under house arrest for tax evasion

(ANSA) - Palermo, November 10 - Centre-right Sicilian regional deputy Cateno De Luca was acquitted Friday of charges of attempted embezzlement, abuse of office and fraud. The charges were linked to building contracts in the town of Fiumedinisi, where he was mayor. He was arrested in June 2011.
    De Luca said he would continue to "denounce this corruption".
    On Wednesday De Luca was put under house arrest in relation to a different case, of alleged tax evasion.
    De Luca, a member of the centrist UCD party, was among 70 regional councillors elected in Sunday's election won by new centre-right Governor Nello Musumeci.
