EC chides Italy over corruption, tax evasion, justice system (see previous) (ANSA) - Brussels, March 5 - The European Commission called Italy out on Wednesday for weaknesses in its public administration, rampant tax evasion, flaws in its justice system, and widespread corruption. "Long-standing inefficiencies in the public administration and the justice system, weak corporate governance, and the high level of corruption and tax evasion (all) reduce the efficiency of the economy and hinder the emergence of benefits of adopted reforms," said the European Commission in its in-depth review of the Italian economy's imbalances.
