Siena prosecutors continue questioning in MPS fraud case
Former head of audit board must answer to investigators12 February, 18:42
The latest person prosecutors called Tuesday was Tommaso Di Tanno, the former head of the bank's board of statutory auditors.
Di Tanno was called in as "a person informed of the facts" and will likely be asked about the derivatives transactions at the heart of a fraud investigation at the troubled bank.
Responding to journalists who asked him if he would have answered prosecutors' questions, Di Tanno - accompanied by his lawyer - said, "Of course, everything". Earlier Tuesday, prosecutors called in Marco Parlangeli, the former general manager of Fondazione Monte dei Paschi di Siena, the foundation which is the bank's largest shareholder.
On Monday evening, prosecutors called in Marco Morelli, the bank's vice general manager.
