Cops seize 772 mn euros in building-incentive fraud

Scores of people under investigation

(ANSA) - ROME, JUN 28 - Finance police on Tuesday seized over 772 million euros in bank credits allegedly stemming from a huge ring of fraudulent claims for State incentives for construction work to make buildings more environmentally friendly.
    Prosecutors said 143 individuals and entities are being probed in the provinces of Napes and Caserta in relation to the case.
    Among the beneficiaries of the credits was a man who allegedly claimed to have handled 30 million euros of building work even though he was in jail.
    Many of the suspects are allegedly linked to mafia clans and around 70% were claiming the 'citizenship wage' benefit for the poor or had applied for it. (ANSA).
