Lombardy healthcare bigwigs in 'luxury-car insurance scam' (ANSA) - Milan, February 28 - Italian police have cited 46 people including some of the best-known healthcare professionals in Lombardy over an alleged three-million-euro scam on insurance for luxury cars.

The probe was opened after a complaint from Lloyds of London, who became suspicious at the high number of cars stolen from the group.

Police established they were fake thefts.

Among those cautioned was top hospital department chief Aldo De Amicis, brother-in-law of Milan provincial government chief Guido Podestà, who is not implicated in any way.
