Sardinia councilors indicted for suspected embezzlement (ANSA) - Cagliari, December 19 - A court in the Sardinian city of Cagliari issued indictments on Wednesday for 18 unaffiliated regional councilors suspected of embezzlement of public coffers.

Hearings will begin April 19.

Investigations began after an administrator for the mixed political group, Ornella Piredda, aware of possible misappropriation of party funds, reported members for mobbing.

"The decision (to indict) sends a strong message to all Italian regional governments," Piredda said after the indictments were announced.
