Palermo, the accountant Lo Mauro returns to the house. “He continued to handle confiscated assets”

After the interrogation under guarantee, at the beginning of September, the investigating judge had revoked the measure of house arrest with the suspension for nine months from the exercise of the public office of judicial administrator: “Due to the presentation of the resignation from the administration procedures court entrusted to him “. The Palermo accountant Antonio Lo Mauro is under investigation for extortion, because he allegedly forced a tax consultant to give him five thousand euros in cash and pay off a debt of another six thousand euros towards a colleague.

New investigations by the financiers of the economic-financial police unit have recently revealed “a clear violation by the suspect of the disqualification measure – now writes the investigating judge, who has reinstated house arrest – since despite his resignation from the office of coadjutor of the National Confiscated Assets Agency for the management of the assets of the Buttitta procedure, Lo Mauro continued to administer the confiscated companies, continuing to hold the position of chairman of the board of directors of Cava Consona srl ​​and Orima Service srl, as well as director delegate of the quarry company Giardinello srl and Vallelena srl ​​”.

For the prosecutor Sergio Demontis and for the substitute Claudia Ferrari, the continuation of the offices “makes the danger of probative pollution concrete and current”. For this reason, the gup Cristina Lo Bue accepted the request of the power of attorney, re-arranging the house arrest.
