Rome mayor meets national anti-corruption czar

Cantone, Marino talk after arrests involving former city bosses

(ANSA) - Rome, December 4 - Rome Mayor Ignazio Marino met Thursday with Raffaele Cantone, the national anti-corruption czar, amid reports of corruption and mafia infiltration of the city government under the previous administration. It's believed that hundreds of millions of euros were diverted into mafia hands from the cash-strapped Rome government. Police arrested 37 people on Wednesday in the probe that include such prominent right-wing politicians as ex-mayor Gianni Alemanno, a former cabinet minister under ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi.
