Suspend Palamara says Cassation PG

Cautionary measure ahead of disciplinary proceedings

(ANSA) - Rome, June 18 - Cassation Court Prosecutor General Riccardo Fuzio has said that former magistrates union ANM chief Luca Palamara, under investigation in a corruption and cronyism probe in Perugia, should be suspended from his functions and salary.
    The disciplinary section of the Supreme Council of Magistrates, the judiciary's self-governing body, will rule on the request on July 2.
    The measure was requested on June 12 and is of a 'cautionary' nature, sources aid, meaning that it is set to kick in before the disciplinary process takes place.
    The Palamara case has roiled Italy's politicised judiciary.
