Industry chief criticises 'punitive' Italian taxman (ANSA) - Rome, February 4 - The head of Italy's powerful industrial confederation Confindustria hit out at the Italian taxman on Tuesday, describing the system as "punitive, complicated and uncertain".

"Companies are subject to thousands of obligations and as many controls," Confindustria chief Giorgio Squinzi told a parliamentary commission on administrative and legislative simplification. "But has all this served to prevent tax evasion? The figures say no," he added.
