The Italian government is set to
receive a letter by the end of the week from the European
Commission requesting clarification on "significant factors"
that have led to an increase in the State's public debt, sources
said on Monday.
Other EU member States, including Belgium, are set to get
similar clarification requests, the sources said.
Bloomberg reported that the Commission is considering proposing an infringement procedure for Italy over its 2018 debt on June 5.
Bloomberg quoted sources as saying that the procedure could lead to a penalty of 3.5 billion euros.
