Graft suspects gave suit, Rolex to minister Lupi, son

Infrastructure minister's son given Rolex 'graduation present'

(ANSA) Florence, March 16 - Suspects arrested Monday in a mushrooming graft scandal gave a tailor-made suit to Infrastructure Minister Mauruzio Lupi and a Rolex watch to his son as a graduation present, judicial officials said.
    Franco Cavallo, one of the four arrested men said to have a "close relationship" with Lupi, arranged for a tailor, Vincenzo Barbato, to cut the suit to measure for the minister, according to telephone calls cited in the order written by a Florence judge for the arrest of the four.
    Also mentioned in the warrant was a gift by engineer Stefano Perotti and his wife of a Rolex watch worth 10,350 euros to the minister's son Luca that was allegedly delivered by Cavallo.
