Carminati gets 10 years in huge Rome graft case

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 10 – Massimo Carminati was given a 10-year
term in the second appeals trial in the massive ‘Mondo di
Mezzo’. (Middle World) Rome corruption case while fellow
ringleader Salvatore Buzzi got 12 years, 10 months.
    The case was initially dubbed ‘Mafia Capitale’ because
prosecutors said the affair, in which a gang got its hands on
city contracts worth millions, ranging from the running of Roma
and migrant camps to waste management and maintaining green
areas, regarded organized crime.
    But the supreme Cassation Court quashed mafia convictions in
2019 and ordered an appeals court to reset jail terms in the
case.
    Former rightist militant and ex-gangster Carminati and former
leftwing cooperatives kingpin Buzzi were given terms of 14 years
and 18 years, four month in the first appeal trial.
    Buzzi and Carminati were released from house arrest and jail
respectively last summer after a judge ruled that the maximum
amount of time they could be deprived of their freedom before a
definitive verdict on their case had run out. (ANSA).
