Twenty Italian politicians involved in casino fraud
casino fraud, Italy.
Posted on Tuesday, July 04, 2017 by "T".
A total of 20 individuals, apparently high-ranking current and ex-members of the Aosta council, have been accused of intentionally committing fraud in the management of a casino in Italy.
The people being investigated included Augusto Rollandin, ex-governor of Valle d'Aosta, and other members of the Aosta council from the years 2012-2015, in which an investigation was launched into the Saint-Vincent Resort & Casino, a sensational yet 100% publicly-owned entity. Pierluigi Marquis, the mountainous semi-autonomous region's current governor, is also put under investigation.
The investigation is seeking to reveal that between 2012 and 2015, the region's administration tampered with the books to falsely create budgets showing intentionally lowered operating losses and unrealistic industrial development goals.
The high-ranking officials were accused of fraud - the casino's balance sheet showed that over €140 million is missing. The investigation is aiming to find out what transpired with four transactions that occurred between 2012 and 2015 - why did the amounts €50 million in July 2012, €10 million in September 2013, €60 million in October 2014, and €20 million in December 2015 were transferred or withdrawn from other stakeholders in the casino and publicly-listed companies.
The former and current local council members were accused of deliberately claiming to have simulated losses so that they can authorize payments coming from the regional funds.

| Politicians at their best. No matter what there is no way a politician not to be involved is some "weird" case.|
Either they participating directly, or looking the other way.
140 millions missing 20 of them so in equal split thats 7 millions each

| It's quite strange for me to read the same news ... how it seems to me that if such things are done, politicians should have made themselves secure ... and if they did not do it then they themselves are to blame for this .... they caught by the hand and correctly|

| I am not sure if this is the case here, but in many parts of the world, organized crime, one of the most conspicuous sources of political corruption, has historically shown an interest in infiltrating the political arena to facilitate business. |

| Can you believe that such stuff goes on in the United States of EUROPEVILLE? Well, only in Italy ..... or anywhere else for that matter could or would something like this go down. Amazing only twenty people were discovered to be involved. How many do you think we're really involved? Maybe we could run a book on it!!!!!|

It seems to me that people who choose a career politician initially know about the money that will come along with the post .... and the fact that the money will be dishonest and violating the law is also known to everyone .... therefore, politicians are initially not very good people

Nothing surprises me in regard to fraud of this type since not only Italy is seen involuntary, in most of the countries of the world it is exposed by the different portals of informaciona this news of corruption, fiscal evasion or as it is called.-

| Does the mafia still have this level of sway in Italy, I wonder? You'd think that if these twenty officials were all in cahoots with each other that this would have been uncovered more quickly. You can't have a conspiracy with that many involved.|
