Dijsselbloem wants to punish Italy - M5S

Row over alleged manipulation of interview

(ANSA) - Rome, November 2 - The ex-president of the Eurogroup, former Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem, wants to punish Italy for its 2019 budget, the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) said Friday, posting a video of an interview with him.
    The centre-left opposition Democratic Party (PD) accused the M5S of tampering with the interview and substituting a voiceover that distorted Dijsselbleom's words, but the M5S said there was no manipulation and his views were "serious".
    Class CNBC said "#Dijsselbloem Case, our version published October 19: the tones of the ex-president @EUCouncil are more than conciliatory".
