Carige mixed with politics - Di Maio

From Scajola brother to Olive Tree MP

(ANSA) - Rome, February 1 - The failure of Genoa lender Carige was bound up with politics, Deputy Premier Luigi Di Maio said Friday, producing a list of names of local politicians.
    "The heinous management was not only due to the incompetence of management but also to the involvement of politics," he said.
    Di Maio cited Alessandro Scajola, brother of scandal-hit ex minister Claudio; Luca Bonsignore, son of former MEP Giovanni Marongiù, an underscretary under ex premier Romano Prodi; and Alberto Repetto, an MP in the now-defunct centre-left Olive Tree alliance.
    Di Maio, who is also industry and labour minister, said that after its precautionary capitalisation, "with the State's help Carige will become a bank for citizens".
