Two taxmen, one accountant nabbed for corruption

Fixed taxpayers' internal revenue problems, for a price

(ANSA) - Turin, September 23 - Finance police on Wednesday arrested an internal revenue service employee, a staffer at tax collection agency Equitalia and an accountant on suspicion of corruption. Investigators say the three worked together to fix taxpayers' internal revenue problems in exchange for bribes.
    They face charges of corruption, instigating corruption and revealing classified information.
    The investigation was sparked by the internal revenue service itself, which noticed suspicious accesses to the agency's database.
    As well, police searched the premises of 28 individuals, companies and professional studios who they say benefited from the suspects' illicit intervention.
