Comi answers prosecutors questions

Ex Forza Italia MEP did not request release from house arrest

(ANSA) - Milan, November 18 - Lara Comi, a former MEP for Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia (FI) party, answered all the questions a judge put to he in relation to a corruption probe on Monday, her lawyer told reporters.
    But Comi did not request to be released from house arrest, the lawyer, Giampiero Biancolella, said after around five hours of questioning. "Comi does not see herself as she has been portrayed," said Biancolella.
    "She replied to everything. She is convinced that she did not commit any crimes". According to the arrest warrant, Comi exploited her public role to obtain "the maximum gain in economic terms" for herself.
