Former Rome garbage king gets 3 year term for nepotism

Three other senior managers convicted in 'parentgate' trial

(ANSA) - Rome, May 27 - Franco Panzironi, formerly the powerful head of the Rome city trash collection agency AMA, was convicted Wednesday of nepotism in hiring at the firm and sentenced to a 3 year, 8 month prison term, judicial sources said. Three other former senior managers from AMA were convicted on similar charges of arranging employment for family members at the agency while four others were acquitted.
