Crazy expenses at the University Consortium of Agrigento: 4 executives under investigation: ilSicilia.it

Lunches, dinners, transfers and personal expenses with credit cards from the Agrigento university consortium. The Agrigento Public Prosecutor’s Office closes the investigation and sends the notice of conclusion of the investigation – preparatory to the request for indictment – for 4 executives.

Former president Joseph Mifsud, who was at the center of the world-wide “Russiagate” intrigue, of which traces have been lost for years, are under investigation. Mifsud was appointed president of the University Consortium of Agrigento (Cua) in 2009 on the recommendation of the then president of the Province Eugenio D’Orsi. The academician was also recently condemned by the Court of Auditors of Palermo to compensate for the tax damage to the Province of Agrigento. Mifsud disappeared after US investigators announced his involvement in Russiagate in October 2017.

The notice of conclusion of the investigations, signed by the prosecutor Luigi Patronaggio, by the deputy Salvatore Vella and by the prosecutor Chiara Bisso, also has as recipients Olga Matraxia, former manager of the General Affairs sector of the institution, Andrea Occhipinti, manager of the financial sector and Giuseppe Vella, administrative director and signatory of the payment orders.

The accusation, hypothesized for all for facts dating back to the years 2012 and 2013, is of embezzlement. The sum subtracted would amount to about 50 thousand euros. The top management of the university consortium allegedly misused the credit cards they had available, allocating them to exclusively personal expenses such as travel by plane, purchases for train tickets or hotel stays, even for their companions, justifying the expenses with non-existent reasons for institutional representation. Mifsud alone is accused of having spent 2,500 euros to buy iPads, MacBooks and other electronic devices.
