Palamara indicted for corruption in Perugia

(ANSA) – PERUGIA, JUL 23 – Controversial former magistrate
Luca Palamara was indicted for corruption in Perugia on Friday,
judicial sources said.
Palamara was sent to trial for alleged corruption because of his
ties to local businessman Fabrizio Centofanti, the preliminary
hearings judge ruled.
Palamara, the former head of magistrates’ union ANM, was struck
off from the profession last year amid a Perugia probe into
alleged corruption and cronyism.
The case opened the lid on a web of alleged cronyism which has
led to calls for a root-and-branch reform, extending to the
ruling body CSM itself. (ANSA).
