Deputy premier not phased by surfacing in Ligresti wiretap
'An irrelevant phone call' says Alfano15 January, 13:23
Salvatore and Giulia Ligresti along with another daughter, Jonella, were arrested in July for alleged involvement in cooking the books at the Fonsai insurance group.
Cancellieri denied influencing Giulia's release from jail to house arrest, and insisted she only intervened to look after her health, as the woman had a history of depression and anorexia.
Shortly after the confidence vote some of Salvatore Ligresti's statements to prosecutors were leaked to the press, in which he claimed to have influence with media magnate and three-time premier Silvio Berlusconi.
Alfano was once Berlusconi's heir apparent, but has since left the Media magnate's ranks to form his own New Center Right party.
