EU funds probe in Puglia train crash (2)

Prosecutor wants that paperwork found 'wherever it may be'

(ANSA) - Trani, August 15 - Prosecutors on Friday authorized the seizure of all paperwork on the allocation and management of EU and regional funds in connection with the single Andria-Corato rail line, where a head-on commuter train collision killed 23 people last Tuesday. Investigators want to find out why the tract was never widened to two tracks, and why EU funds that should have been spent to modernize the Andria-Corato tract were moved from the 2007-2013 budget to the following one (2014-2020).
    Prosecutors gave orders to search the premises of Ferrotramviaria rail company, the Puglia regional offices, and "wherever (that paperwork) may be".
