Saguto regulation inserted into anti-mafia code

Named after Palermo judge suspended over seized mafia assets

(ANSA) - Rome, November 11 - A government amendment to a bill being examined in the Lower House inserts the so-called Saguto regulation into the anti-mafia code. The measure prevents "flat mates and regular dinning partners" of the magistrates who assign the task of administrating seized mafia assets from getting the post, as well as their relatives. It is named after Palermo judge Silvana Saguto, who has been suspended and is under investigation for alleged wrongdoing in connection with seized Mafia assets in collusion with judicial administrative staff and family members. She allegedly assigned posts and stipends to judicial administrators "in exchange for jobs or consultancy posts for close family members".
