Italian News

Amedeo Laboccetta was parliamentary and national coordinator of the PDL in Naples.

Former Member of Parliament (MP) of the PDL (Italy) Amedeo Laboccetta, is among those arrested by prosecutors in Rome in an operation on a transnational criminal association, which laundered income worldwide from online gambling and video-lottery, and failed to pay taxes. In handcuffs is also entrepreneur Francesco Corallo. Sergio and Giancarlo Tulliani, father-in-law and brother-in-law of the former president of the Chamber Gianfranco Fini, are also suspects.

Tulliani and son Giancarlo are involved in money laundering activities, which allegedly arrived by way of the West Indies Company, and its manager Francesco Corallo. According to what has been learned, there are over 10 suspects in this affair. Amedeo Laboccetta was parliamentary and national coordinator of the PDL in Naples. In November 2011, he had been opposed to the seizure of a computer owned by Francesco Corallo, arguing that it was a PC with material concerning his parliamentary activities.

The checks of the magistrates in Rome came on the basis of a dossier sent by colleagues from Milan. The recycling concerns a turnover of over €80 million.

Tulliani would provide Rudolf Baetsen, Corallo’s right-hand, with two offshore companies in order to pump the money allocated to the Antilles. Some of the checks carried out by the magistrates would also be deepened by controls carried out at the time for the “house of Monte Carlo.”

Baetsen would finance the purchase of the apartment in Monaco, on Boulevard Princesse Charlotte 14, formerly of the National Alliance properties, founded by Tulliani and then rose from his own company to take charge of another.
