Lombardy is the most important economic region in Europe

Lombardy Governor Attilio Fontana is under investigation for abuse of office as part of a large kickbacks probe by Milan anti-mafia prosecutors in which 43 arrest warrants were issued in Lombardy and Piedmont on Tuesday.

The accusation against Fontana regards the nomination of his “law firm partner” Luca Marsico to a job with the Lombardy regional government.

Fontana may be questioned as early as Wednesday by investigating judges.
