The embezzlement probe covers the last and second-to-last legislature, finance police sources said. Among those called in for questioning are former Democratic Party (PD) regional assembly whip Antonello Cracolici, who is the current chairman of the ARS institutional affairs commission.
"All the charges are related to my activity as whip. I haven't been charged with pocketing a single euro," Cracolici told the assembly, adding he will explain more in a news briefing Wednesday.
