Former deputy mayor of Verona arrested on corruption charges
Giacino allegedly got his wife city contracts17 February, 15:50
Vito Giacino, who was elected on Silvio Berlusconi's center-right Forza Italia party list, stepped down November 15 when he was placed under investigation. Also on Monday, his wife, Alessandra Lodi, a lawyer, was put under house arrest.
The probe was sparked late last year by an anonymous letter accusing Giacino of impropriety in obtaining lucrative contracts for his wife as a legal consultant to the city.
